Happy Late Cinco De Mayo
The other day we celebrated Cinco De Mayo with our children, nephews and nieces. We had enchiladas and taco salad, which I'm sure is very authentic Mexican food. But the big hit was the owl pinata full of candy. All the kids got a few a whacks at the owl until it burst open, freeing its candy for all those hungry little (and big) mouths.
My wife and I have celebrated Cinco De Mayo for many years, not that we have any ties to Mexico, but because it seemed like a fun celebration. It makes me wonder how many others celebrate occasions like this just for the fun of it. Anyway, happy late Cinco De Mayo!
