Chris turns 5

My friends asked again if they could have a fiesta at my place since their place has no garden and not a lot of space. Yesterday was Chris's 5th birthday (cupleaños) so the fiesta was here. Small, not much of the family, just mom and sisters and 2 neices and a nephew.

Salad, nice cake and a beautiful gelatin (gelatina de mosaico) ... but now I get to ask ... why would you make a gelatin with no flavor or sugar. Is this a Mexican thing or a family thing.

Cleaning up in the morning I decided to wash off the kiddy pool and because we had water for a change, filled it. Of course the kids were not dressed for water play like kids might be at the beach ... so we decided to do it again today with bathing suits (trajes de baño). Marilyn brought over belated presents - two squirt guns that were prefect. This being the first week of a two week school vacation we decided to do it again tomorrow.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
