Owned by a lovely family
We stopped for Cervezas

I brought with me, two Chinese lanterns. The kids had never seen anything like it. What a thrill to see their faces light up.

After my piñata
I could have taken photos for hours of all the beautiful faces
Diane Finoro brought a fantastic craft for the kids. The girls made beautiful mini autograph/scrap books from coloured napkins
Students from Our Lady of Hope Catholic School in Richmond Hill made beaded bracelets for NPH students. In return, the NPH kids made bracelets for the OLH kids. *A fun trade
I was surprised with my very first ever Pinata
Just a sample of what is made at NPH
Is it refa time?
