Vinny's very first birthday happened to fall on the night of the school carnival. I dressed up as a princess and passed out royal invitations at the school on Thursday. Students and families were encouraged to dress up; if you ever need a pick-me-upper, I strongly suggest dressing as a princess and going to a kindergarten classroom. The little girls told me time and again how beautiful I was and asked me, "are you a real princess?"
"Of course, I am, " was always my response. Such an esteem builder!

|Our knight in shining armor, on a wave board, Ivan.|
|Ivan the knight!|
|Ammon as Robin Hood.|
|Orlando was the jester. He was great and even memorized jokes. My favorite was what do you get from a nervous cow?|
