Cinco de Mayo

Yesterday, while waiting for our children to get done playing after school, one of them asked us, if we could go  to one of the Mexican restaurants to celebrate  Cinco de Mayo.  We thought about it and  said "Why not?"  Our  daughter asked us what Cinco de Mayo   is for last night when we were having dinner.  Since hubby and I don't realy know it's history, we looked it up and found out that it is   the celebration to commemorate the  victory of the  Mexican's army's unlikely victory over French forces at the  Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  According to the  article in Wikipedia that I read, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico's Independence Day in the United AStates.  Mexico's Independence day is  celebrated on September 16.

Anyway, here are the photos   of us  today when we   had our get together.

2nd Graders
 In the next three pictures below, you can tell whose daughter is the funny one among the three by looking at the pictures of the Moms.  
I don't think they realized they did  similar things but as they say "Like Mother, like dDaughter" lol.  
I wish we could this often.  My family doesn't attend  parties too often  but it is nice to go out with close friends once in a while.  To all our Mexican friends, hapy Cinco de Mayo.  This is  a great  day to remember.  School is getting close  to its summer vacation, we only have like  two more weeks of school and we will be done for this school year. I can't wait to spending  time with my kiddos everyday.  We can explore the woods again without  having to worry about   homeworks and projects.  Looking forward to a great summer!

Sis R, that is awesome that you get the chance to bond with other parents and get to know them and not only their kids. I love to chaperon too but few parents are volunteering.
