Sayulita Days

In Sayulita, the week surrounding Mexico's Flag Day (February 24) is known as "Sayulita Days". Have I mentioned before how festive Mexico is? How it seems that there is a holiday every other week? Have I mentioned how much I love that about Mexico? One more reason for a day off school and a party, you know? Anyway, Sayulita Days is a time for celebrating - you guessed it - Sayulita! And, boy is there celebrating! There's a carnival at the baseball field, a parade (which my kids were in!), food booths, music, dancing, more food booths, jumpy houses in the plaza, more music and a whole street (or maybe two) is closed for market booths. The atmosphere is very, very festive and we enjoyed ourselves very much, yes we did. I took about...oh...a million pictures, and now I'll begin the painstaking job of sorting and sharing my favorites....

....an hour later.

I didn't realize how slow my connection was. It took forever to upload 10 pictures. But, without further adieu, for your viewing enjoyment, I give you...

Sayulita Days

The candy booth was a big hit with our fam.

That's a burrito. I repeat...a burrito. Grande.

We all agreed that this was our favorite carnival game...throw a rock, break a bottle, win a beer...for your mom. Emerson won two. Yeah for me.

Sweet sisters in front of the ferrous wheel. What's that rule? Never ride a ferrous wheel in Mexico? Whatever. We break all the rules.

Evie in the parade.

Emerson, too.

See that tall gringo kid toward the back? He be mine.

Our Miss Soleil Mia watching the parade from atop the golf cart with her new friend...Soleil Maya. Did you follow that? We met this little girl here in Sayulita and her name is Soleil Maya. Can you believe it?

We heart Sayulita.
