The party was a lot of fun ... both for the kids and the adults. The house looked festive and the atmosphere was high energy. At one point during the party, Carlos pulled out a huge bag of hats/wigs and let the kids go to town. That was a brilliant move; the kids had a blast trying on the fun hats and dancing to the club music that was rocking through the speakers. In addition, they had balloons galore for the kids to play with and make into a variety of creations (from dogs to aliens to flowers), and a cat pinata for the kids to whack at. It was a treat to be included in Valeria's special day and we are so grateful to have been invited.

|What a great family!|
|Valeria even got to blow out the candles twice ... once after we sang "Happy Birthday|
in English and again after we (aka everyone but me) sang "Happy Birthday" in Spanish
|Daniella made these traditional Venezuelan desserts that were sooo yummy! |
They're basically layered jello, but not overly sweet, which I really liked. Annika was
thrilled at the idea of having a pink dessert!
