(Cascarones for Sale)
I laughed and smiled all day on the Saturday of Easter weekend.
As Hauler Too (my Tahoe) and I headed to the flea market, searching for plants Saturday morning, I never stopped smiling.
There was excitement in the air.
These sights of families getting ready for their Easter celebrations at their homes or local parks make living in the Rio Grande Valley so special to me.
It was the pickup truck in front of me on the expressway with 3 pinatas, crepe paper ruffling and blowing in the wind,
It was the rows and rows of cascarones (confetti eggs) for sale along every busy street-
And it was the pinatas.
My next treat happened next door to the pinata stand, at De Alba Bakery where I bought an empanada de pina , a pineapple empanada, to enjoy on my Saturday adventure .
I was still smiling, but it was time to head to the flea market for plants and fresh fruit and vegetables for our own Sunday celebration.
I hope you smiled all weekend too.
