I missed out on this one (had to work) but my brother had both of his daughters have their birthday party at Cleveland Park in Spartanburg, with most of the party happening under the gazebo. Since Little CR is one now, it was more or less all Little K's event. This was also the first birthday party that Little K got to invite her friends from school, which is something I never got to do as a kid.
My mom said it was pretty hot outside, so it was miserable in many ways. But at least there was food.
And plenty of presents!
That was always my favorite thing as a kid.
We never had a pinata when I was a kid, but Little K got her own. Probably her first, I think.
I'm assuming they let the girls hit the pinata first. It doesn't take long for a pinata to be obliterated once the oldest boy gets his turn to bat.
