Our Mexican construction crew is the best. We are truly indebted to them and consider them family.
Recently we organized a picnic at the school in San Nicholas to show our thanks. It was great to see the crew with their families enjoying a feast of hamburgers, hot dogs, various salads, watermelon, drinks and chips. Everything was cooked in the school kitchen and served family style. Smiles abounded and tummies were filled to the maximum. We were also to distribute clothes, shoes and toys during the picnic which are always in need.
The new school basketball hoop was put to good use. Who knew we had the makings of the next Lebron James in our midst!
Later water toys were brought out, and a huge water fight took place. By the end of the fight, everyone was soaking wet which was a wonderful feeling on another hot day!
And of course no fiesta is complete without a pinata for the kids. Nacho operated the rope from the roof with Roberto on the patio trying not to get hit by the wild swings of the children. As it always does, the pinata finally gave in and there was a mad scramble for the candy.
Another good day in Mexico.
