On my actual bday, we went to Mar Chiquita beach. It's shaped in a horshoe from the waves coming through the rocks and creating a cove. The waves were so big when we were there and it was a spectacular sight.
Then Casey's team played against their rivals, Naranjito, and beat them in 4. It was a really intense match. There was even a red card issued and a fight amongst the fans after.
At this point I'm sullen because my birtday plans are not turning out as I had wished. We get back on the freeway to go home, and Casey sees the carnival that I've been asking to go to since we've been here. I'm a sucker for crappy carnivals. He pulls off and gets in line for parking. Suddenly, I was one happy girl. Despite another terrible parking experience, an overpriced entrance fee, and a very tired baby, the carnival was a perfect end to my bday.
