Our family chose to celebrate the "Americanized" holiday "Cinco De Mayo." Both of my parents spent time in Mexico when they were single and my father, especially, likes the food!
Mom and Dad dressed in traditional outfits they purchased on their honeymoon for a little more authenticity!
Using brightly colored tissue paper, the children created these flowers for our centerpiece and the girls also put flowers in their hair.
Our menu included: tamales, shredded pork, taco meat, refried beans, mexican rice, homemade salsa, guacamole, blue corn tortilla chips, "Mexico Flag veggies," your choice of either flour or corn tortilla, plus all the trimmings! No one left hungry!
Of course, no Fiesta is complete without a pinata! Mom and Dad set the pinata up in the garage as a surprise! Everyone had an opportunity to take a swing at it--including James! The children all loved it except Grace. She was a bit apprehensive until the candy came out and then it wasn't so bad!
Our little "senorita"
The final blow.....
The end result!
