July 15th, Cayucos Portuguese Celebration

Here are a few images of both my kids (Mason & Amanda) who were involved with the Celebration and marched in the parade.  Mason as the escort for the 2012 Cayucos' Queen (Marina Perry) on Saturday and Sunday he carried the Portuguese flag in the parade for Marina and her family.  Amanda was part of the court (flower girl) in the parade, she was having such a great time.  She got to dress up in costume like in the old country and then switched into a beautiful simple yellow dress after the parade.  Marina follows a line of Queens in her family, her aunts Tammy & Tracie, her cousin Bernice and possibly others I don't know about.  Portuguese are proud people of their heritage and I am very lucky to be married to a wonderful portuguese man.  We had a lovely day in Cayucos with Joe D. Silva (my father-in-law), my husband (Joey R. Silva) and the kids.  Thank you Sylvester-Perry family for including us in such a special time.
