This week Elena attended her first kid's birthday party in Mexico (referred to as a piñata). She was thoroughly entertained watching the other kids and exploring the grounds. They had rented two jump houses--one for big kids and another for little kids. She wanted to join the big kids but settled for rolling around in the smaller one. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera handy to catch those shots. Below you can see her on the left in the pink skirt eagerly watching the bigger kids play.
Elena was completely enthralled with the Mario piñata. She didn't take a swing at him but as you can see from the sequence of events following, she did manage to get a paleta (sucker) out of the deal.
