Kids versus the tias!

The boys had a blast on their day off from school in celebration of Carnival!

The streets are lined with kids, armed with water guns, balloons, and buckets, ready to snipe anyone brave enough to walk by. Families relax in lawn chairs in their courtyards with boom-boxes, fire-crackers, and insense burning for good luck.

The boys spent the afternoon in the park getting soaked and making friends with the neighborhood kids.

Marcos, ready to attack!

Marcos, on the attack!
