Elliott's birthday party/foot race

IMG_0459 copy

A few weeks ago my little buddy Elliott had his 5th birthday party at Kincaid Park. His folks told me he had started planning the day a year earlier! The main event involved a foot race with all of his friends in which Elliott himself was not to run but to "referee". For that reason, he wore a big brass whistle around his neck to signal the start of the race--but after everyone had started, the contagious enthusiasm got to him and he couldn't help but join the pack.

Scroll down to see images from the day and a few "portraits" of the kids.
