Celebrating Birthdays Latino Style

Posted by: | 4 Comments

My firstborn is turning 5 tomorrow. I can’t even begin to tell you how difficult this is for me to believe.

Nothing like cooling off with a sprinkler on a hot, hot summer day! This day brought back so many memories of my childhood in Mexico and my siblings and I playing with the manguera in the front yard of our house in Satelite in el D.F.   ...
