Pin the Tail on the Pony

Madeleine believes no birthday party is complete without some party games so, for my birthday celebration this past Sunday afternoon in Silver Lake, she designed and illustrated Pin the Tail on the Pony. All attendees, large and small, were required to play.

First up was me and, thankfully, no one photographed my stint at stumbling around with a blindfold on trying to stick a black construction paper tail in the proper place. Spoiler alert: I lost.

I did get the group with Joe about to take his turn, though. 

And Dad, too. The kids thought it was pretty hilarious that he first attempted to stick the tail on the house instead of the picture of the pony.

The funniest moment, though, was Elisabeth's turn. Her best attempt at sticking her tail on the pony?

Yep. Her own rear end. Kids and adults laughed for quite some time over that little mishap.

And finally, the victor, my sister.

Her prize? A pack of gum. Oh, and a lot of laughs. Thanks for the game, Madeleine!

A great time was had by all. Did the birthday girl's sister share the gum prize with a sad nephew and two nieces?

Happy Birthday ... when it arrives May 27 which, if the sun does not stop, is tomorrow.
