North America Continent Box: Mexico

We are currently on a trip through North America.  Last month, we stopped in Canada.  This week, we are heading through Mexico.  Yes, we skipped the US-we will be back!

Here are all the new items that I added to the North America Continent Box.

We will start off with a Sombrero that I found in the party section of Hobby Lobby.  Yes, it's a little small, but it fits in the box!

This dress was a gift a friend brought back from Mexico for me when I was 5 years old!  It's still such a beautiful dress.  Fits Mini Cooper pretty well, too!

The little Pinata was also from the Hobby Lobby party section.

The silver and tuquoise bracelet was a gift from my sister when she when on a mission's trip years ago.  It was hand-made by Mexican women.  The chili pepper is an old salt shaker from my kitchen.  The Temple of Inscriptions is part of the World Landmark's Toob (Hobby Lobby).  And, the mustaches were also from the Hobby Lobby party isle.  Lots of fun with those!!

The donkey Pinata transporting a chili pepper, Temple of Inscriptions, and the Canadian Cowboy, LOL!!

Checking out all the stairs on the Temple of Inscriptions.

No clue what was going on here, but it was funny.

One evening, I played a bunch of Mexican music including Viva Mexico, the national anthem.

We had a ton of fun dancing around to the music!

However, the mustaches have been the favorite by far!  We've also been reading a ton of books, which will get their own post.

So glad you stopped by!  Gracias and God Bless!

We're linking up!
