Well since my birthday is the last birthday our family will celebrate in Bolivia I thought I would do a blog about it! It also was one of the funnest birthdays I have ever had...
We started out to the day with Rudi and I going out with Emily to run some errands and to go to coffee at our favorite coffee place in Cochabamba. Instead of my usual Cinnamon Frappe, I had a Mocha. I really like the "latte art" they did on top!!
|Birthday girl with Mocha! Gotta love it!|
|Birthday girl with Lover Boy!! Gotta love him, too!!|

For dinner we went out for Charque at my favorite Charque place. Tia Techy and Javier and their family joined us for the evening festivities.

Charque dinner includes: whole boiled potatoes, boiled eggs, corn/hominy(?), llama meat (charque style kinda like jerky), and fresh cheese (queso fresco). You eat it with your hands and you always put yaqwa (Bolivian salsa) on top to spice it up!! This is one dinner that usually has no leftovers. I usually eat until it is all gone or I am about to pop!! or both!!
Clara and Rudi made me a yummy chocolate cake. Can you see how old I am from the candle formation? It made for plenty of wax in the cake when they all got lit and going!
|Happy Birthday to me!|
|And poof they're out!|
|Tia Sarin's b-day is two days after mine and she is two years younger than me!!|
First we had a short time in which Rudi shared from the word and our family sang a couple songs for everyone. Then we all had dinner, of which there was an abundance!
