Andy's Early Birthday Celebration

Andy will turn five at the end of the month but we decided to celebrate early while we're still here in Brazil with his friends. He wanted a Spiderman party, so a Spiderman party it was:
He had a pool party in November - something that probably won't happen next year:
Dad grilled up some deliciousness while the menfolk milled around the churrasqueira (Brazilian-barbecue oven):
Judging by the expressions, he's gotten pretty good at it:
Andy opened some presents:And played some games:
While Ben wondered when he was going to get a turn. Not for about four months, Little Man:
Then Andy disappeared and Spider-Man joined the fun for a group photo:
All in all it was a great day and a birthday to remember, not just because of the food and fun, but also because it will be the last birthday Andy celebrates with this Portuguese-speaking bunch... for a while, at least.
