Ben = 3

Ben's 3rd-1220

I'm not a fan of my own birthdays any longer, but when it comes to kids' birthdays, it's always a hoot. Our close friends' son, Ben, turned 3 not long ago, and we were there for all of the action.

Aside from birthday cake and ice cream (vanilla is always my favorite...), there was a piñata set-up in the backyard, and the kids couldn't get enough of it.

It was a great afternoon filled with laughing (and screaming) kids, and I must say most of us adults had fun, too.
