I did a birthday party at a playground outdoors yesterday. As you can see, the kids really clustered around me, which added a lot of energy to the day. The little girl in the striped shirt helped me throughout the whole party as my assistant. It was very sweet of her, and I gave her an extra caricature for her help.
I did another birthday party yesterday, which was a lot of fun. It was held outdoors, and it was a beautiful day. The only problem I had was that I left my china marker out in the sun at one point, and the crayon part started to melt. I had them bring me a little bucket of ice to cool it down, and it fixed the problem! You have to be able to think on your feet, so to speak, at these events.
