A Birthday For Miles

The dinosaurs have come back just in time for Miles's birthday!
Miles's birthday party was on Sunday August 21 at Washington Park in Portland. It was a beautifully warm day and the theme was thoroughly dinosaurs. There was volcano lava cake, stegosaurus cupcakes, dinosaur ice blocks keeping the beverages cold - and a pinata that could probably cause dinosaur extinction if it were just a little larger. Thank you to all our friends, and all the little babies, who came out to celebrate Miles with us. A special thanks to Sean McKeever for taking most of the good photos, and to Sarah for making the cakes and most of the pinata.

A volcano cake for the Birthday Boy!

Stegosaurus Cupcakes for everyone else (with almonds).

Miles blows out his candle with a little help from Mom and Dad.

What do I do with this?

Miles eats his cake.

A wee brontosaurus wanders up and asks for a bite of cake.

Miles lets him clean the plate while he moves on to the pinata.

Whoa. What is that?

Paul and Sarah made the pinata - it took days!

Miles thinks it is pretty funny that we're hitting the big blue thing.

Next, everyone else takes a turn. Anders gets a little help from Weston.

Ezra takes a swing with David.

Faye has done this before, but still needs a hand from Donna.
