Cinco de mayo was no time for siesta, but time to fiesta. We planned a fun little party to celebrate the defeat of the French forces in Pueblo and also to eat lots of good Mexican food with a wide variety of international families (but unfortunately not even one hispanic person in the mix.) The boys made signs to let folks know about the fun to come. Eila made a piñata. We all worked to make food and some decorations. There was lots of music and dancing, and, of course, football (soccer).
Then, on the occasion of the royal wedding (Prince Harry and Meghan Markle), our British neighbor and friend, hosted a lovely garden party. It was a royal afternoon tea party to which the ladies wore hats and the gents sported bowties. Again, of course, there was music and food and even a little badminton. This was also the date we celebrated Brian’s birth and so it was extra special.
