On Saturday, Porter attended his first birthday party (not including his own or family). It was for his friend Parker, who he’s known for around two years from Montessori. Parker turned four on April 1, no fooling. It was hld outdoors at Miller Creek Park, about five minutes from our house. We’d never actually been to the park before, but I’m pretty sure wel’ll be back. It was great fun.

It was a Madagascar themed birthday party and on Friday Parker sked me if I would bring Melman to the party, which I did. Here Melman stands watch on one of the benches. You can just make out Porter climbing a chain ladder in the background.

Here’s two Quicktime movies, one of Porter sliding down the fireman’s pole and banging his knee and the other sliding down the slide. You can either download the movie to your desktop or just click on the link to play it in your web browser (assuming your web browser has the quicktime plug-in installed).
