Happy Birthday Eduardo!

Our host brother Eduardo had his 10th birthday on April 9th.  We had promised that we would cook him a special dinner.  However, it turns out that his birthday coincided with Good Friday, which meant that we spent the entire day and night at church.  There was no time for cooking.

About a week after his birthday, we remembered our promise and brought it up at the dinner table.  Graciela said, "That's right!  A sad-faced Eduardo came up to me a few days ago and said, 'Scott and Gabby promised to cook me dinner and they never did!'"  Poor kid.

So, we agreed on a future date and decided to cook his favorite... meat on the grill.  We fired up the charcoal and barbecued chicken.  We bought tons of veggies and mashed potatoes.  It was fun for the whole family.  To top it all off, we brought the grill inside (when your whole house is made of concrete and cinder block, you can do this) and made S'mores.  Good times.
