baby burrito

The weather this weekend was (is) so fantastic.
First thing everyday we are out the door, anxious to enjoy the near perfect temperatures.
Beautiful and sunny with no humidity, and cool enough for a light sweater or jacket.
My kinda weather.
Big daddy and I went out for dinner to one of our standbys Gio's on Friday night.
find out what we had and how it was over here.
Saturday I did an early morning yoga class, which felt good except I started getting antsy while in corpse position near the end of the class wanting to get outside and enjoy the amazing weather.
We took Lulu to a neighbourhood outdoor fair that had all kinds of fun stuff for kids.
Pony rides, giant inflatable jumping things??, clowns, balloons, games, music, face painting, the works.
Lulu was of course too small for most of the attractions, but was pretty stoked when she got a yellow butterfly balloon from the creepy clown.
actually he wasn't that creepy, but personally I find most clowns to be pretty creepy, but she didn't seem to mind him.
Then we went to her boyfriend's first birthday bash.
Happy birthday Sammy!!
Sam's mama and pops put out quite the spread with a little Mexican twist, seeing as it also happened to be Cinco De Mayo as well as our favourite little man's birthday.
The place looked great and the kids all had mini sombreros and mini maracas.
Not an easy task to get everyone with their hats on in the same photo, so unfortunately I didn't quite get the perfect shot.
oh well.
but trust me it was adorable.
there were lots of yummy Mexican snacks that went rather nicely with the most delicious margaritas I've ever had.

I can hardly believe Sam is already ONE!
or that Lulu was where he was at this time last year.
what a difference a year can make..
Time certainly does fly, all the more reason to enjoy each day as it comes.
and days are even that much more enjoyable and fun when you get to spend it with good friends.
well that and when you get to enjoy copious amounts of some seriously kick ass margaritas..
So happy Cinco de mayo
and more importantly happy First Birthday Sam!
Feliz de cumpleanos!!

1. Clowns are creepy.
2. Great weather makes all the difference.
3. It doesn't get much better than a good margarita and fresh guacamole on a summery day.

Happy belated Cinco de Mayo! What a great day to be born on! And the party snacks look so yummy.

I agree with the clown thing. They are pretty creepy. Oh, and a margarita sounds so good right now... at 10:09 am.

Sounds like a fun day, and such perfect weather. We celebrated my youngest daughter's 2nd bday (early) on was so great being outside in the sunshine. Oh and no it wasn't me that you saw over the weekend!!! It would have been amazing had we met like that though don't you think?
