Anthony's favorite part by FAR was touring the historical Patterson house. We could go from room to room at our own pace, with docents in each room to answer questions. We probably stayed in the kitchen through three different groups. He was so interested in all the different gadgets. When the docent picked up the ice tongs he knew EXACTLY what they were from watching Frozen a million times. She then showed them the ice box and explained how it works. He remembered an amazing number of details from last year, including the memorial displays woven from human hair. He also really enjoyed watching the women from the quilters guild work.
We didn't spend too much time with the animals, but we did enjoy watching the pigs wallow in the mud.

No pictures, but Richard also walked a handful of laps.

His party was your basic party at the park. Despite scheduling it for the hottest day of the year, everyone had a great time.
I had a custom pinata made, meant to be the Golden Snitch. Anthony originally didn't want a snitch pinata. The Golden Snitch, you see, is a VERY tiny quidditch ball, and he wanted his pinata to be BIG. One we clarified that he could have a BIG Golden Snitch, Anthony was fully onboard with the idea.
The pinata store made our pinata especially rugged. After each kid had several turns, Bob went at the pinata as the children all cheered him on. It was really quite funny. Evidently it made quite an impression. The majority of the kids wrote their Monday essay at school about Anthony's Daddy breaking open the pinata.
