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.
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!
