The Party

Yesterday was Miko's 1st birthday party (even though his birthday was the 23rd). It was quite a day!
Here's the smiley, happy guy. Boy did he have fun. And he was a laugh a minute! Like when he shared his juice box with Uncle Matt.

Later Matt enjoyed his own "juice box".
Nana and Steve were there, of course. Grampa and Nana enjoyed their seven-year reunion.
But the day was reserved for you know who, and you know who enjoyed a pile of wonderful gifts and showed his appreciation to the assembled...
The cake (individual chocolate-iced cupcakes) was a big hit...

Dad (Selo) thought so...
Miko and Mom enjoyed watching the kids hit the bejeezus out of the piniata...
Mimi takes a whack...
And Layla too...she would eventually crack the thing open - full of candies for all!
And at the end of the day, who was still going strong? My Miko!

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
