Bautizo = Christening

A friend of ours just had his baby baptized. We were invited along to the fiesta.
About 80% of the people there were part of the family and we were the only gringos.

Lots of little girls in their party dresses.
Boys in cowboy boots and jeans.
All having fun.

Damas Y ......


For the kids, the biggest bang for the entertainment dollar seemed to be the balloons.
Many games were invented with them.


Everyone seemed to be having a great time. Well, except for the guest of honour.
In the picture below you can see him with 2 of his aunts.
He just doesn't seem impressed.

Jose Antonio (6 months believe it or not) is not easily impressed!

But his cousins have more than enough smiles to make up for it!


Alejandro and Cruz put on quite the bash, lots of food, booze and fun!

The proud parents!

Dancing and music lasted well on into the night, but we headed out not long after the "Bullfight" Dance.

Todd -- What a great marketing opportunity. All those kids. Only balloons to play with. Where was your invention?

It looks like a great celebration. You caught a nice action shot of the dance. Just imagine what Larry could have done -- as the bull.

OMG, I seriously am in love with that little boy in the cowboy hat! Can I keep him?!

What a lovely experience, I hope someday I will get to go to a Bautizo party.
