!Dia de La Familia!

When you put together families, food and tons of water you get a day of wet, crazy, fun! Our family had a fantastic time at the Family Fun day sponsored by our chlidren's school! There was four types of games that were played by differnt 'teams' in a rotation style! We played water balloon volleyball; submarine (a pair of people stand one behind the other the head of the 'submarine' is supposed to pull bandanas from the 'tail' of other submarines and the tail is supposed to protect the team's bandana from being pulled); water soccer on an inflatable, wet, soccer field and traditional Mexican games! The families had a great time together and we learned some traditional Mexican games - one was a mix of duck, duck goose and Red Rover and the other was a type of 'freeze' game.

The children enjoyed the water games the best, of course! The water volleyball game was a big hit and the water soccer game was mother's and children against fathers (hmmm... wonder whose idea that was?) probably the father's! Sufficed to say the father's team won - the women and children's team had plenty of goal attempts but my dear husband was the goalie and did his job extremely well - so well that other mother's were telling me to go and distract my husband! We had tons of wet fun!

The school mascot was walking around and posed with the children for one of our pictures! We had fun with all the other students and their families.
