El Día del Niño!!

In celebration of National Children's Day NPH held a fair for the kids chock-full of food, fun and games.

Vendors came in and provided churros, rides, fried bananas, tostadas, cotton candy and all sorts of things.

The kids with special needs were assigned one-on-one to an adult and made the rounds with them, collecting candy and toys along the way.

In the afternoon there was a performance by the adults of NPH.  Each section performed and since I work in the clinic and I'm a volunteer, I performed twice.  Another Guatemalan first: dancing in front of a live audience!

For lunch we were provided with happy meals from McDonalds...definitely a treat for the kids!

The highlight of the show was when the office staff danced and sang, dressed in the most ingenious costumes.  We had four ninja turtles, Snow White, Minions, Characters from Inside Out, Inspector Gadget and more!

Unfortunately Tuesday brought exams and the kids are back to the grind for the rest of the week.  Still, it is nice being a kid and we are certainly grateful for ours!
