Mothers' Day in Guatemala

We celebrated Mothers' Day in both Santa María and Itzapa. Such fun and great to see the Mums dancing, laughing and getting stuck in. Usual games a-plenty in Santa María, rounded off with lots of dancing (Pat!) and chicken tamales.

In Itzapa, the competitive edge was ripe including three-legged races, egg and spoon, pin the tail on the donkey, eat the cream and beat the pot...thanks Seattle Sara! The rain didn't dampen the spirits and, as in Santa María, the day was rounded off with dancing and cake! Thanks to everyone involved, the Mums loved it!
