With May right around the corner, along with Mother’s Day, this last weekend in April is a time to celebrate children and is replete with games and celebration! Traditionally April 30th is Children’s Day in Mexico, so be sure to let out that inner child as you dance through low-tide puddles, take in a baseball game (Tiburones are hosting home games now through the 29th), or join in the cornhole fun!
