This is a picture inside the church in Mitla. Everything is shrouded in mourning for the Savior's death (taken on Good Friday).
Palm Frond decorations were everywhere. This one was in front of the Cathedral in Puebla. This picture was taken Saturday evening when we took our visitors downtown. Grampie bought little light-up toys in the Zocolo, and the kids had a blast playing with them.
Easter eggs and the Easter bunny are not part of Mexico's Easter celebrations. Chiara is happy on Easter monring, because the Easter bunny still came to the Watts household - thanks to help from Grammie and Grampie who brought plastic eggs and egg dye from the U.S.
We even had an Easter egg hunt in the park, and the following pictures are of the hunt. Elena helped hide the eggs, so she was taking the pictures.
We invited some boys who were playing at the park to join the hunt. I think they thought we were a little weird.
And our friend Paulina came out to see what we were doing.
Stephen shows us his eggs. Grammie brought a cool tye-dye egg dye kit. The kids had a great time dying these eggs. And eating them as egg salad later.
Watching the kids from a shady spot.
And so is this!
The whole gang poses for a picture! (Grampie is taking it).
Later in the afternoon we drove out to see this church which is covered in traditional Talavera tiles.
There was a wedding going on, and this mariachi band waited outside the church to play for the bride and groom as the exited.
We liked this flower in the churchyard.
We also drove by Karl's school to show his parents where he works.
In front of the entrance to the school.
We really enjoyed spending Easter with Karl's parents and older brother, Greg. We were able to watch conference online and really enjoyed that as well. It was nice to have a somewhat relaxing weekend after our trip to Oaxaca.
