Cinco, Seis

Following our morning hike we headed to Uncle E and Auntie Rach's for some Cinco de Mayo fun. Or as we like to call it, the gringo's excuse to eat Mexican food and drink margaritas!
Lily was feeling very festive. Rach made some great food and E made his famous ribs. 
Uncle E decided to let Lily climb his tree like a monkey. She wasn't too sure about that. 
He wasn't very far in case she fell.
It wouldn't be cinco de Mayo without some theme cocktails. Most people stick to margaritas or coronas. I guess a couple of restaurants have decided to combine the two. Eric had one of these called a "muchacho" at a local mexican restaurant and decided to make his own. Essentially you invert a bottle of corona into a glass of margarita. Gross. 

The next morning we headed to Ventura to the beach. It was a great day and perfect weather. The beach has a playground right there too! What more could a couple of girls ask for?
 Ahhhh this is the good life says Lily.
 Time to check out the play structure.
 Gemma could be happy on the swings forever, but we needed to check out the water.
 They would have gone right in if we let them. Some kids were swimming but the water is pretty cold!
We will wait until next time when it is hotter. Best of all Lily made friends with a girl her age who had a ton of sand toys. The girls all played and we got to enjoy the beach ourselves for a little while! Ahhh there might be some peace at the beach this summer after all.
