DIA DE LOS MUERTOS

Today is the last day of Dia de los Muertos. The primary focus is to honor loved ones who have passed on. It truly is a beautiful celebration. The cemeteries are cleaned and thousands of flowers are brought in to decorate the graves. I took these photos in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
I would have missed Halloween altogether this year - had my friends Kristina and Gina not invited me to spend the day with them, Gina's Mom, Ginger and their two little ones, Asher and Ellie at the local Pumpkin Patch.

The kids had a ball with pumpkins to play on and paint.....................................
There was a petting zoo.......................................................Asher and Ellie were a little apprehensive about holding the poultry................
Ellie warmed up to the little chick......................................................This little girl could not figure out what these two creatures were.................Hay bales to play in.........................................Got a kick out of this shirt - WILL TRADE SISTER FOR CANDYThe kids had snow cones.............................

Ellie's was blue.........................................
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  2. I used to have friends that lived in San Miguel Allende. They loved it there. I had a ball Halloween watching the kids. I think it gets more fun every passing year.
