One of the most traditional things about birthday parties in Mexico is the piñata.

Ben’s birthday party last weekend was officially a “Captain America” party, but we couldn’t find any piñatas that were Captain America, so we settled for a minion from the movie Despicable Me 2. We haven’t seen the movie yet, but our kids love the minions, so we were excited to find this little guy at the party store.

As usual, they took turns whacking him until he spilled his candy. They loved it. Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post. It’s always really fun to get candy.

Shiloh walks around with her bag of “Despicable Me candy” now.
