Erica, filmed by Amy, reacting her seeing her cakes for the first time.
Yuuki and Erica with their cakes and matching masks. He is a Kamen Rider, she's Gokai-pink, from Gokaija, both are Sunday morning super-hero TV shows.
The power of Kamen Rider: all kids ignoring the sweets to watch it!
And then Ana arrived with the Pinata! Dora the Explorer (Erica calls her Dora-ble, because I kept calling Erica DoraDora-adorable!). I don't know why Erica looked so grumpy at Yuuki!
Our neighbors grandkids, Kiara, Airi and Yukia. There was one more little boy but he was too shy to have a go.
Left, Amy; centre Karin, right - Raul on the fence! The pinata works best strung over a rope that can be raised or lowered depending on the size of the kid hitting it. Kanji was on one end in the house, and Raul jumped on our stone wall - luckily he did not fall in the river behind!
Dipti arrived early enough to have a quiet moment with Erica opening her present, a book.
Erica opening her present from the Tambourinos - a ball tent! It was amazing, kind of like a magic trick, we opened it up and BAM all the children went away and silence descended.
Me! Along with Lena, Dipti and Max. On the right, Erica's posse, Hana, her, and Kiara.
