So our happy crew of the Clark family, Suzanne Thurston (2nd day in Ecuador and doing a road trip AWESOME) and us, found seats and paid our .75 each to ride 45 minutes to Paute.
Cinco de Mayo is not celebrated here. Vicky was determined to not let that stop her. She enlisted the help of her neighbor children, a bunch of flour, water, glitter, paint and IRS forms and came up with a pinata for the party.
We were served a mix of mexican foods and beer as everyone visited and got to know each other. Some of us had only met on Facebook until this day!
After all the grown ups socialized the little girls who had made the pinata were very anxious to get to this pinata! It took a bit of urging but finally they started swinging at it and in the end it need some heavy duty pounding but they got to the candy.
It was a fun day, and great field trip for all the folks who went with us on the bus! Thanks Vicky we had fun!
It turned out pretty good. I have an issue with the oven that is yet to be resolved. It heats up too slow and I am too impatient to wait for it to come up to the correct temperature...so it was a bit singed..
It was very good though.. and while I baked, Randy as usual was helping in another part of the house..Yeah, I got it good!
