Kids & Quads, Growing up in Mexico!

Growing up in Mexico is looking pretty good!

We had an action-packed, fun-filled weekend with an outing to Boca de la Cañada on Friday, a Birthday party on Saturday, and then yesterday, wrapped up the weekend up with an awesome afternoon out in Banda, a small rural town on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende. 

The skies on the drive out were magnificent with the clouds like a painting…

Our friend’s beautiful hacienda-style home is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. 10 adults, 8 kids, 6 horses, 4 burros, 6 dogs, a flock of chicken, and 2 quads made for a fun Sunday BBQ!

And a highlight for sure was doing lap after lap on the quads around the expansive property grounds…

How many kids and dogs can fit on one quad?

Dinner was a BBQ feast of ribs and chicken, salad, rolls and sautéed bacon green peas…wine for the ladies, beers for the boys and sparkling apple juice for the minors…

Supper Time!

Soon after their last bite, the kids were back on the quads—Liam and Mairead feeling very privileged to be the oldest in the group and able to give the rest of the gang rides…

Come 6:00 p.m., it was time to wrap it up for it was a school night…
