Spring parades for the little kids

Last week was the spring parade time, known here as the Desfile de Primavera. Most were held yesterday, Friday, but a few earlier in the week. Normally it's for kindergarten kids but occasionally younger ones get involved. The idea is they dress up like all things Spring, birds, butterflies, rabbits and other small animals. The exceptions are the Queens that most of the girls want to be. Our community of Pinal Villa had two parades, one in the morning for the Kinder and one around 5pm for little kids. Just takes a hand full of moms that want to dress up the kids and have a parade.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
