I headed to a back-yard birthday party in Madison, CT.  Four-year olds, lots a babies, dads and moms, grandfolk, too.  The girls were dressed as princesses (it was cool to see them chase around the yard in pink dresses) and boys (and one girls) dressed as pirates.  The kids were a little slow in the beginning (who is this guy?), but settled in for some dancing, cake, and a summer day in the backyard.
