Earth Day Birthday!
Tuesday is Mina's 8th birthday, but today we whooped it up with her friends. We threw a Taekwondo party with an Earth Day theme, and it was off-the-charts fun.
I love Mina's invitations.
This is my favorite part; girl eating carrot and apple.
I baked Earth cupcakes!
We figured the cupcakes would look better with some animal friends on top.
I colored the pig to look like our adopted, calico beauty, Ramona, who resides comfortably at the Northern Cali Farm Sanctuary. Same pose!
Check out Ramona's friends:
Putting the goodie bags together was a blast though it felt a tiny bit propagandous. Still an awesome bag. A friend from work asked me if for the party I was going to dress the children in orange jump suits, give them long pokers and make them pick up trash along the highway. It was a good idea, but I had already booked the Taekwondo studio.
Mina got to wear a special "birthday black belt" and lead her friends in a TKD class.
I think she's having a good time. Hard to tell.
How many black belts does it take to hang a piñata?
The piñata was Master N's idea and because sticks and baseball bats are for wussies, he also had Mina bust open the sweet, paper mache heart with a flying side kick. KI-YA!
Wish, baby, wish
