I think I'm going to go with the taco bar, bright table linens and music. DH is a history buff, so I'm sure he'll give the kids a little history lesson too!

No, we don't celebrate it, but we do love Mexican food & eat it fairly often. (DH could eat Taco Bell ever day!). I had planned to make tacos for "Quatro de Mayo" at church last night, but taco fixings weren't available, so I made 24 qt of spaghetti sauce instead!
I am working tonight & not sure what I will leave for the guys to eat...maybe enchiladas?

We ended up doing Mexican food and listening to the Cinco de Mayo station on Pandora. It was fun. DH laughed and asked why we were celebrating. I told him it was just a fun break from the monotony of our every day dinner. We might have to start "celebrating" more holidays like this!
