My pictures posted in backwards order, but you get the idea. Here's the highlight reel of the party...
Shay taking a swing at the Diego pinata. We actually had both Diego and Dora pinatas (compliments of Nana's resale shop), so all 16 kids (we invited 22--yikes!) got to hit several times, as well as take home a good bit of bounty:
Bryn and Billy (yes, THE Billy) "rescuing" some animals--those little tablets that you put in water and watch turn into various kinds of animals:
Snack time with orange kool-aid, popcorn, and gummy worms--all snacks chosen by little rescuers:
Shay as Baby Jaguar and Bryn as an elephant--all the kids got various animal masks, printed by my dad and cut out by me and my mom (with many resulting scissors blisters):
"Rescuing" animals from the sandbox:
Part of our front room, all "jungled" up for the party:
