Avi's sixth birthday.10.11.15
Six days ago, Avi turned six. This is her third birthday we celebrate in Germany and the second time we got to throw her a birthday party with a multicultural set of friends.
We had the party at an indoor "playground" we had visited a couple of times before for her friends' parties. when you reserve your table you let them know how many guests you are expecting. On the day of the party you arrive, you pay for the guests and then they tell you which tables are yours. you have to take everything. Pro's and cons to thism you can decorate however you want and you can take whatever food you'd like.

The PiñataAfter singing happy birthday I re gathered all of the kids and we went outside to break the piñata. It was the first time many of these kids got to break one. one of them cried, but her mom helped her through it. and the rest (including me) had fun.. At the end I end up just shaking the candies out of the pinata and the kids ran for them!
This being an "expat" birthday party, I'm linking up with Travel Tuesday.
