DSC_5600 DSC_5647In Mexico there is always something to celebrate, birthdays;anniversaries;graduation;marriage,  etc but I was asked to attend a Baby Shower for “Diego”.  I do not remember the last time I went to a baby shower, probably my own some 24 years ago.  I really have no idea?

I was so excited, to be included to celebrate the birth of their first child, a boy.  I knew from attending a few other celebrations in Mexico, that there would be lot’s of people and food.  I was correct,  although we were the first to arrive (half hour late), soon the crowd of family and friends mingled happily.  The event took place this past Saturday (Sabado) afternoon and the weather was perfect, plus 28.  I did not know what to expect, do we sit around and talk, are there games, can we open all the gifts, when do we eat?  Soon my questions were put to rest and the games began.  Competing teams, men against women which is really not fair since the women will win hands down!!!!!! A few fun games which all enjoyed and lot’s of laughter.

For me the best part was watching the people, talking and of course taking photo’s.  that’s my passion, let me “capture the moment”.  So here are a few photo’s,  of a fun afternoon.
