Birthday Parties!

The kids went to a birthday party for our neighbors this afternoon.  It was on the roof of the 14th St. YMCA.  It was a lot of fun!  Families in NYC go all out for birthday parties.  At this particular party there was a magician.  He did a great job.  His whole show was probably 45 minutes and he held Jack and Lillie's attention the majority of the time.  Elliott left to go play on the playground, but he liked most of it.  At one point the magician asked for a volunteer and Jack got picked.  I missed the very beginning of the trick, but got most of it on camera.  It's shaky because Elliott kept wanting to see the camera and I could hardly keep him back so I could video it.  The magician put one ball in Jack's hand and told him to squeeze it and he was going to make it disappear.  You can see what happened (the quality is not great, but you get the idea).  Jack LOVED it!

I know the post have been "Jack heavy" lately.  Maybe this week I'll get some good shots of Lillie and Elliott and let you know what is going on in their world!
