Thank you to Ana and Adriana – and their friends – for helping us to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. They told us why we celebrate the holiday, and demonstrated some traditional Mexican dances. Then they invited us all to get into the act. What fun it was to watch those little dancing feet! Ana and Adriana shared special gifts with the kids, and we all enjoyed chips, salsa. and a festive ice-cream punch.
