Dia de los Muertos

Sora and I went to a nearby town (where we hadn't been yet!) to celebrate Dia de los Muertos. Sora's Spanish teacher had been talking about it, and we just watched the Book of Life, so it was perfect timing! 

Of course, the first thing Sora wanted to do was eat. They gave us sweet bread at the door, but we quickly found the food stand and ate tacos (which Sora ordered herself by saying "uno taco por favor"), a tamale and strawberry lemonade. Sora's been trying to practice her Spanish skills on everyone she hears speaking Spanish (so far our neighbors and people at the store) but she's also still very shy, so she speaks too softly for them to hear her say "Hola". 
 Anyway, Sora also enjoyed decorating a sugar skull
 and making her own skull from a plate.
 There was a photo booth for kids, one for adults (which we didn't get to) and a lot of very cool alters.
 Sora even got her face painted!

 One of the last things we did at the festival was a labyrinth which prompted us to stop by the park on the way home to do a much larger labyrinth.

 Overall, it was a lot of fun!
