Mare Mare's Big Day

Today was cousin Maryann's 1st birthday party. When we got there I tried my best to get a good shot of the birthday girl, but my attempts were futile - she was more interested in the food!
Once cousin Alex showed up Ish was in heaven. He let her carry around the hall while he snacked on bread.
Lunch was Ish's favorite - chicken strips and mac & cheese.
He sat nice because Alex and Ashley sat with us.
After lunch it was time for the pinata - Ish got to go first.
After the kids failed to get it open, I may or may not have just pulled a bunch of the strings myself to get the party started! It was a free-for-all of candy and small toys.
Then is was cake time!
Mare Mare enjoyed her serenade.
And though she may look uninterested in her smash cake in this picture, believe me, she wasn't.
See - I told you!
Happy Birthday Mare Mare!!!!

So cute! Those pinata strings don't quite do the job sometimes. I guess you still need the baseball bat for backup!
