    My first Middle Eastern wedding!

    My son was in the wedding party of his best friend's uncle. They are from Syria and invited us to the party.

    We had such a blast!!! Lots of hands in the air, hip shimmying dancing, and my favorite part, the family of the groom passed out these pretty scarves that they trimmed in beads and coins and dangling sequins. Each square scarf had 530 beads hand sewn on to it. And we had to gather at the entrance where the bride and groom would pass through to into the reception hall and we had to shake them and dance with them over our eyes and cheer on the happy couple.

    It was so fun to have my kids experience it. And there were so many similarities to traditional Mexican weddings (the train-like dance, the aye-aye-aye yells, etc). I guess it is true when they say we are more alike than we are different...

    Anyway, I had so much fun that I just had to share!!!
