Happy Birthday Malachi!

This Sunday we went to New Braunfels to help celebrate the birthday of my cousin's son, Malachi. I hadn't seen these relatives in a while so it was a real treat to catch up with my uncle John, my aunt Amparo, and their sons (my cousins) Michael, David, and Panch!

Sybilla herself had a great time playing with Malachi and his little sister Zoe, both of whom I was meeting for the first time too! Michael and his wife Heather went all out and we enjoyed hamburgers and hot dogs, veggie crudites, chips, drinks, and cake. They'd set up a bubble machine (I know what I need to buy now!), a wading pool with floating toys, kiddie croquet, bean bag toss, and bins full of rice and kitchen toys which the kids adored (gotta employ that idea too!). They also had a pinata which Billa enjoyed thoroughly; in fact it was almost disturbing how she and her cousin Zoe delighted in whacking at the thing when they got a chance. Billa also showed off her party trick, which is her "scared" or "shocked" face. She knows she gets a good laugh out of everybody when she does it too and everyone enjoyed it. Here are some pictures from our adventure:
