WHAT A GREAT DAY!
At 10 am today (Saturday) we loaded 3 pick up trucks and 10 people (including Santa) and went to a place on the island called Los Fincas, which means "The Farm". As we arrived today we could hardly believe how these folks live. Shelley and I have been coming to Cozumel for 20 years, and this is the first time we ever knew of this place...
That said, there were smiles EVERYWHERE today, as Santa and his elf's give the children toys, t-shirts, Beany Babies, candies and SCHOOL SUPPLIES...
Shelley spent her birthday morning in the muddy jungle roads giving away school supplies and toys with Santa and the cutest Elf ever (our daughter Kelly) ! Later in the day we went to the Fireman's house to give out hotdogs and presents! She said it was her best birthday ever !
Below are some pictures that we took as we shared what we had, with all the children we could find...
