On Saturday Porter attended his first official birthday party. It was for his friend Parker, who he attends Montessori with. He’s actually know Parker for over two years since he was at Montessori when Porter first started there when we first moved to Marin. The party was outdoors at Miller Creek Park, but you already knew that. It was great fun, with all of Porter’s friends from his Montessori and even Ms. Liza and Ms. Kashi from his Montessori were there.
The party was Madagascar themed and they had this great cake with the main four animals, including the giraffe Melman.

Then everybody lined up around the cake to sing happy birthday.

And Alice enjoyed her sugar rush, as well.
Look at her grip on that fork and the cake residue on her face.
