Happy Cinco De Mayo

6 May

Today we had some friends over and had a Homeschool Fiesta!

We started off by making a few decorations.

You can’t tell in this picture, but our dogs even had a fiesta flower on. Patches, the pup on the left, isn’t too thrilled about it! You don’t believe me???? Well, check out this next picture…..

Told ya…He is NOT happy!

I guess Pandora created a Cinco De Mayo station because it was on my list, so we pushed play on that station and jammed out to Spanish music all afternoon!  It was fun.

Since our kids are older, we decided that THEY would be the one’s making lunch which was: quesadillas, rice, beans, chips & salsa, and guacamole.

Is your mouth watering yet?

Wait till you see the pictures… Oh Man it was delicious!!

They were trying to knead homemade tortillas with a whisk!!

No way, José!

That is  NOT how it’s done! 

You gotta get your hands all up in it!!!

Look at that! Not bad for their first one.
They were Oh So Good, too!

Next on the menu is spanish rice & refried beans. I forgot to get a picture of the beans. Maybe because I was too busy dancing with my imaginary partner!

I’m not kidding… I really was dancing all over by myself until I finally just grabbed Tristan and made him dance with me… He tried… Lol

Then a little later I grabbed my son, and the boy has two left feet… Hilarious! He left me and danced his way to the chips & salsa. Ha!

Check out that rice. Looks good, hu!?!

Now for the most A-MAZ-ING quesadillas EV-UHHHHHH!!!!!!

Mmmm, they were good!

Yes, we fried them! We figured we might as well go ALL OUT!

What’s a Fiesta without Jarritos!?!?!?

My favorite is Toronja, which is grapefruit.

We also had pan dulce, sweet bread, but I didn’t have a chance to get a picture of that. It was gone FAST!

We were all stuffed and ready for a nap when the fiesta was over. 

Definitely a day to remember!!!
