Boy gets hit by Fire Truck!

Originally uploaded by S'mee.

Today was the family surprise party for #1 given by his wife at their home. After a fine lunch, chatting, stories and a dip in the pool we all headed out side to watch the babies take a whack at the fire truck pinata.

There's just something odd about this tradition that I will never understand. Blindfold a bunch of little kids. Spin them until they are dizzy. Give them a hard bat of some kind. Allow them to whack away at anything they can find!

The three little ones involved today topped out at 3, 2 and 18 months. The tool of destruction was a rather small broom handle and if the truth be told, most of the whacking came from daddies.

This picture is my grand baby, the middle of pecking order for age, but the only BOY! You could tell he knew what to do with that broom handle. He gave a few good whacks, but not much happened. I love this picture because it looks as if he has managed to whack the pinata right over his head and onto his body. Not really so, just perfectly in front of his body making a pretty good photo illusion.

It cracks me up every time I look at it.

It is a great pic. I too thought that someone had boxed him in!

Ha! That's awesome. I never even considered that maybe he was standing *behind* it!

I totally thought it was a kid in a weird kind of fire truck costume.

(it still cracks me up when I look at it! lol)

I love this kind of stuff. Of course I love kids in weird costumes also. There was a kid way back in the day whose parents worked for the WB costuming department and they always had the BEST costumes for halloween. One year the whole family came as people being eaten by sharks... it was SO great!

(if anyone looks hard at the photo they can see the shadows in the grass and the illusion is gone, but hey...)
