I never had one when I was little, so I figured it was best to get that activity checked off the ol' life list sooner rather than later. Although it was so much fun, I might want to revisit the whole piñata thing at some point... hmm new tradition, perhaps?

Guys, I was a total piñata cheater. I didn't take turns with anyone and I refused to wear a blindfold, so I was basically peeking the whole time. Luckily, no one seemed to mind.

I was preeeetty darn excited to discover it was filled with ERIN-fetti, not gonna lie.

Kate always has a way of making my silly antics look good. Now that's the sign of a great photographer, huh?

What's your favorite birthday tradition? Cake? Prezzies? Oh it's all so good...
