What Do You Get When You Combine Karate With An Easter Egg Pinata?

You get this:
I found an Easter egg pinata last week during my wonderful on-going storage room clean out. "Perfect!" I thought. "I'll fill it and take it to the Stratford party!" 15 lbs. of candy later, it was ready to roll!

Andrew thought he might be able to just take the whole thing with him during the egg hunt, but he was wrong, So, so wrong.

We started with the littlest cousins and worked our way up by age.
Sometimes (quite often.) we were running for cover when the stick swinging got a little wild!
Little Mason thought it might be fun to just throw the stick like a javelin!
 Somewhere along the way, the pinata hanger broke, so Bruce resorted to holding it while the older cousins tried to give it a good kick!
 The best part was watching everyone's faces while the craziness was unfolding:
Finally, Camille gave it a pre-missionary kick, which resulted in her foot being embedded in the pinata. It broke in half and mayhem erupted! There was screaming.
So, let this be a lesson to you all- clean out your storage rooms and you might find some fun party supplies!!


  1. I like Shannons EEK face in the back ground of one of the little kid photos. My face would have looked more concerned than happy too.
    Tons of fun though! Good storage score.
