This was our theme song for the day (to the tune of 10 Little Indians):
"Uno, dos, tres Amigos.
Quattro, cinco, seis, Amigos.
Siete, oco, nueve Amigos, dies Amigos aqui."
The kids started out the day on the jumping machine. Why we call it that, I don't know. I guess we can't come up with a cooler name. Nevertheless, the kids love it. Even Sissy.
They then moved on to playing in the sandbox (HP and The Dude), picking 'daffodils (really, dandelions)' (Peanut) and driving the tractor (Miss. Thang).
For lunch we feasted on taco's! The kids got to "decorate" the tacos to their liking. It was messy (but really, what meal with 5 kids isn't?) and fun. I am no Martha Stewart, but all of the kids gobbled them up. Could it be that my culinary skills are improving? Or maybe it was the 452 activities we jammed into 90 minutes that made them hungry. One will never know.
After a three hour nap (they were WORN out!) the kids took a whack at the pinata. It was fun to see their personalities come through. Peanut was cautious and didn't really like the concept of the blindfold (she kept peeking out under it). HP simply refused the blindfold, she wanted not part of it. Miss Thang was a trooper and gave a few good whacks.
The Dude was in his glory.
He couldn't believe that he had PERMISSION to use a bat to hit something as hard as he could. It took a good 10 minutes, but after whacking (and then punching with his fist) The Dude broke through the Dora paper and it rained candy!
Such a good day.
