Kendra's ninth birthday fell during our visit so we had a Mexican celebration!


A special Mexican breakfast, prepared by la abuelita.
Cinnamon-sugar tortillas, strawberries, and chocolate.

Stuffing the piñata with sweet treats.


We visited La Gruta, a hot springs area outside of town. After lunch we invited another American family there to join us in destroying the piñata.


In the evening we had a party. La abuelita ordered this cake. ¡Feliz cumpleaños, Kendrita!

Several of Mom's friends were there. Kendra was serenaded with the traditional Mexican birthday song. It has two very long verses, and the candles burned all the way down to the frosting before the song was over.
