cinco de mayo.

I think it’s cool how America not only adopts our own celebrations, but we also celebrate those of other countries. We are aware of all the different cultures that have gone into making our own, and that’s one thing I love about being an American. That, and more reasons to throw a party!

This year, we decided to have a Cinco de Mayo party, since it was on a weekend (and since we love margaritas). We had our closest friends and family over to celebrate with us, as well as a house full of kids (I prefer it that way). I used the Red Stamp app on my phone for the invitations.

We originally wanted a Patio Party, but the day turned out to be quite chilly. So we brought out our gas patio heater to keep us warm during the day, and lit a bonfire after the sun set. We had a Mexican taco bar and homemade margaritas. I think I must be part Mexican, because I could eat Mexican food every day and not get tired of it! We also had a dessert bar that the kids devoured by the end of the day. Seriously, I didn’t even get a cookie. But I had margaritas, so it’s all good. Yes, I made those cute bamboo flags myself with some colorful washi tape.

Ed got gigantic bubble wands for the kids, and one of my favorite parts of the day was when all the kids went outside to fill our backyard with giant bubbles. Don’t worry, they were Mexican bubbles.

I think we might have to do this every year! Any excuse for a margarita…

Here’s to culture. And bubbles. And margaritas. Duh. Cheers!
