Happy Birthday Marcela!
The musicians came from a city 2 hours away. Mexican music is very popular in Costa Rica. (We've even been to a local funeral with mariachi music, but that's another story.) Lots of people had a chance to wear the big sombrero and there was lots of dancing.
There was a lot of food, some of it by Gelen who spent the day cooking in honor of her mom's party. I volunteered to bring a cake. Even though it was a large bundt cake we were worried about it serving the 35 or so people there. Gelen decided to serve it at the end after everyone had eaten a lot so there was plenty.
There was a piñata to swing at. Marcela's husband Juan had it rigged up on a pulley. As he raised and lowered it so it was really hard to hit, he had a huge grin on his face. Eventually lots of candy and a few toys tumbled out. Great party guys and thanks for inviting us!
