It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

 Fall used to be my favorite time of the year.  That was before we moved to Mexico and before I learned that Otoño (Autumn) in Mexico was synonymous with asthma, allergies and illness.

Winter brings more of the same. 

But Spring is an entirely different story.  I love Spring!  It is my favorite time of the year.  Spring here is like early Summer in Southern California.  Sunny and very warm.  Perfect weather for this California girl. 

And best of all, no asthma.  (Knock on wood!) 

To celebrate Spring and the fact that the kiddies had yesterday off from school - (It was Benito Juarez's birthday.) - we decided to have a picnic.  (It was ALL my idea!)

We loaded the kiddies into the truck.



Picked up a couple of pollos rostizados (rotisserie chickens) and an extra kilo of tortillas for los patos (ducks).  (Bet ya didn't know that ducks in Mexico prefer corn tortillas.)   

And headed to La Presa (the resevoir) for a day of family fun in the park.











It's days like this that remind me why I think Spring is the most wonderful time of the year.
