For Fox's birthday this year, I had the hardest time picking a theme. At one point, I was asking myself, "Do I even need a theme?" Yes, apparently I did. Eventually I came across a Mexican fiesta wedding (yes, I ended up researching wedding themes). Perfect. Fiesta = Mexican food. Taquitos, churros, guacamole, Jarritos... That was all I needed to know it was the right choice. Here are a few pictures from the party:
It was so much fun having our friends and family there to celebrate with us. My sister's husband, Tim, has amazing skills twisting balloon animals. My favorite was the fishing pole hat (see below). It's the longest I've ever seen Sloane wear a hat!
The most difficult part of the party planning ended up being the search for churros. Every place I checked no longer carried them. In the end, we ended up going with the mini churros at ...Jack in the Box!

Our vast variety of literature really impressed Tim. Especially our guide book selection
Ok, I know what you're thinking. Where's the pinata??? Well, in the end, I knew I wouldn't have time to make one and I didn't want to spend a bunch of money buying one. Plus, I wanted to buy good candy for it, but all the good candy would've melted (soooo hot). But we did have water pinatas! Basically, we just hung a bunch of milk jugs, filled with water, from our back porch and let everyone take a whack at them. Water went flying, people got wet, it was great.

*pro tips: Jarritos are only $0.67 at Pro's Ranch Market. And Jack in the Box churros are muy bien!
