We decided to clean off the dining room table (normally it's full of crafts and lego - I like to call it "having character" rather than a mess ;)), and Eli made some decorations and we cooked a Cinco de Mayo feast! Chicken and shrimp tacos, Mexican Cokes, and Lauren and I "made" sangria - meaning we poured a sangria bottle into a pitch and put cut up fruit in it haha! 3 sips later I was feeling silly ;)
Eli's decorations were awesome! I gave him tissue paper and scissors and let him go to town!
He LOVES stapling things-so this was perfect for him! Pretty huh!?
Obviously I had to take a Blythe photo, because this mini piñata was perfectly Blythe size haha! ;)
After dinner we went outside for the Super Moon!! It was suppose to be 35% bright and 14% bigger than usual, but honestly there wasn't a huge difference - STILL amazing and beautiful!!!
Eli's been keeping a moon journal for school so he was really into it, which makes me happy! In our family the moon is a big deal - I love getting text from my dad reminding me of awesome moon events! The moon is something very important to Bri and I - sweet memories! :)
So we all took turns checking out the moon through the telescope.
Eli howled at the moon - like any young pup would do ;)
We went in and build Harry Potter Legos the rest of the night - it was a perfect day!
Lauren built Hagrid's Hut and I put together Hogwart's Castle!
I may almost be 30, but I could put Legos together ALL day!
Do you all do anything special for Cinco de Mayo?
Have any Mexican Cokes? :)Pin It
