Cinco de Mayo

Monday I had this great idea that we should celebrate Cinco de Mayo! We had so much fun! Everyone brought yummy food that was "American/Spanish Authentic" (you figure it out). The evening was packed with delicious food, fun games, great people, amazing host (HA HA HA), and the cutest kids ever!
Not So Close Allie
Easton feeling his way along the edge for the paper.
Elise was so dizzy that she was way off! Poor Spencer, he is not a donkey! Dodge her Spenc! Cold, Cold, Colder, Freezing! Nice try Kade! Tay Tay... so close, yet so far away!
Kelton sure gave it a good effort! Nicholas was so funny, the first time he wandered the yard laughing his head off. I finally took the blind fold off and we let some of the other kids try. On Nicholas' 2nd try look how close he came. Close but, no cigar! Silly Sadie tails aren't near the front legs, they are near the back legs.
Poor tiny Rylin, she didn't have a chance. She was too short.
And the winner is... Easton! The kids had so much fun on the tramp. I had them stop for a minute to take pictures. They were good sports. Look at those beautiful faces: Austin, Kelton (on knees), Taylor, Easton, Elise, Sadie & Allie
They were crAzY little monkeys!
For one of our games I wrote all of the kids names on a flour tortilla and they threw them like a frisbee. The one closest one to the star on the tramp was the winner: Nicholas, Spencer, Taylor, Kelton, Easton, Sadie, Rylin, Austin, Elise, Kade. On your mark...get set...goAnd the winner is Allie!
Rylin & Karson
Outlaw Sadie with Officer Jerid (she doesn't look to worried)
Cliffy, Rosa & Baby Payzlie
Jerid bending in to kiss Cliffy on the check!
Rosa (holding baby Payzlie) & Abbie
The back of Rylin's head, Rebecca, Dwayne and Easton. YUMMY food! Natalie & sweet little Karson

Dinner was so yummy! After which Taylor (Rosa Jr.) wore the hat that held the chips and wandered the party asking everyone if they would like some 'cheeps'. It was hilarious. When Taylor grew tired of being a gracious hostess, Sadie put the hat on and instead of serving the party she would be seen simply raising an arm, fishing out a chip and eating. It was hilarious! Outlaw Garcia Kade

When the kids were finished smashing the pinata to pieces confetti came out all over! The little girls loved it. Matt was so generous... Allie wanted to take all of the confetti home, you're welcome Abbie!

Looks like so much fun! Cute games and photos of everyone! :)

We also had a mini Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, but since I was dragging my sick self out of bed for the occasion, it was just "us" and much more low-key! This is what I will plan for next year! Thanks for the great ideas!

Great pictures. I love the one of Sadie & Jerid where you can see Elise flying on the tramp. that's funny. And in the picture of all the kids it looks like Austin and Kelton could be brothers.

Came back to leave a comment on Robbers Roost and you'd posted again!
What a fun party, I'm totally jealous. I'm not ever get over how old Cade is, or Elise, or Sadie and Nicholas for that matter...
Happy cinco de mayo!

Every time I check out your blog it looks like you're up to something fun. I'm going to have to start stealing some of your party ideas. Very cute kids...they make a party full of life don't they. Everything is SO very exciting to them. And those beautiful Utah mountains...they really are spectacular. You've got a nice view!

How did the pina coladas turn out? You didn't either you bravely made them on your own and they were fabuloso or you choice the safest option of following a real recipe. Either way, your party looks like it was a lot of fun!

I know it's a little late, but here is the recipe:
1/3 cup Coco Lopez cream of coconut
1- 1 1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup sugar
6-8 ice cubes
