Viva Mexico!!! SWD put on a Mexican themed party on Wednesday for the residents of 7Y at the Edmonton General. We had nachos and salsa dip, fruit, and a margarita machine!! It broke down a time or 2 but Diane's daughter Therese got it working. The frothy, icy concoctions were a real hit with the residents--it was like a dessert for them!! We had all age groups, from the residents in their 90's to 3 of Diane's grandchildren--the youngest being 2 1/2. Four high school kids who have expressed interest in helping SWD also showed up and they talked with the residents and helped out with the pinata. I think everyone had a good time!!
|Maybe if we stare at the machine long enough, it will work!!|

|High schools kids chatting with the residents.|
|Terry helping with the pinata. We decided not to let the residents start swinging a broom handle around!!|
|The kids had great fun with it--and it takes some major whacking to break it open. When all else fails, you can pull the ribbons at the bottom and a trap door opens.|
|And then all the candy falls out!! That's a happy boy!!|
