This past Saturday we joined in a wedding celebration in Tecate Mexico. Tecate it's a border sister with Tecate, California it's a lovely valley surrounded by mountains. I was afraid we were not only going to bake but steam as well. I was glad I was wrong because the weather was just perfect.
The invitations said ceremony at 6:00 pm, well we get there and everybody is still doing preparations. We were told by the Bride's sister that ceremony will start at 7:00 pm She was sneaky but very smart. You see there's the pacific, mountain, central and eastern time zones and then there's the "Mexican time zone." Not very proud of that but you should know that most Mexicans are always late if you tell them be there at 3:00 they'll be there at 5:00 if lucky. Then there's always the Mexican saying "you're never late to a party!" ...but then again we're not regular Mexicans we hate being late!
The ceremony took place right when the sun was hiding, the night falling and the moon coming up! It was just magical!
It was a knockout reception outdoors as well, good music (although Sophie didn't enjoy the music that much) and good food too! Emma had a hard time once she fell asleep. The poor thing kept waking up because of the music and I bet she was not comfortable sleeping in her stroller. When we were leaving she finally had a meltdown and cried non-stop in the car for a long time. Javier stopped the car so I could comfort her and put her back to sleep but it took a while...sigh. Next morning she woke up fresh as a lettuce and smiled as I greeted her good morning. Oh that girl!
