fiesta mexicana

the crowds are rolling into sayulita for semana santa, the two week spring break involving crazy amounts of people getting rowdy in the beach. it seems as if every person in mexico descends upon every inch of coastline available. our beach is no exception, and i do have memories of junst hunkering down the last time we were here during this time. you just have to wait for the storm to pass. brenda has managed to escape to san francisco for the week to help kiki out with the twins while nayou and i hold down the fort here.

we kicked off semana santa in style with an amazing birthday fiesta right on our street. jose, who lives directly across the road from us, turned three yesterday and there was a big party thrown for him. i have noticed that the mexicans do go to extremes when it comes to kids’ birthdays. but this one definitely took things to a whole new level. check this out – they commandeered the entire street! my favourite is the ballon archway at the entrance of our street.



you can see the bouncy castle. that was a big hit – nayou spent about half an hour jumping like crazy in there!


this is the birthday boy with one of the six pinatas that were brought out:


have a look at some of the video 🙂
