Surprise Birthday Party!

Last week Martin’s host family invited us all to a surprise birthday party for Martin. Brad diverted Martin after reunión long enough for us all to sneak over to his house and be ready to yell, “Sorpresa!” [surprise] when he entered. Indeed, Martin was sorprendido when he arrived!



The evening was filled with laughter and lighthearted fun as the group played a variety of party games – some familiar and some new to us – led by Martin’s host sister. From pinning the tail on the donkey to attacking a piñata (while dancing, by the way) to balloon-popping with partners, the group enjoyed sharing this special birthday celebration with Martin and his family. In addition to the games, Martin’s family served a delicious meal and cake. We are sure this will be one birthday Martin will never forget!
