Preston's birthday party -- a much anticipated event.

Check out those nifty cakes! The two in the back have Eaton County Sherriff stickers on the side...

Astrid was very giggly about all the running, jumping, spalshing, squealing, and general pandemonium of the other kids. (She enjoyed sitting near the wading pools where the splashing could reach her.)

Completely unexpectedly, a real Eaton county sherriff showed up. When he walked over, Preston said, "Uh oh! Police are here! Party's over!"

The birthday boy even got to sit in the patrol car in spite of his wet and muddy bottom.

The two littlest attendees learned how to use the sprinkler as a drinking fountain.

Ursula takes a turn at the pinata.
