Saying goodbye to the cousins

The cousins came for two weeks. We had a really nice visit! We did some things we couldn't have done with just the four of us...like cook really good seafood, especially the machas parmesana (parmesan filled clams).

In their last week here, there was a national strike, so Theo and I got to skip school and hang out with the Hales. It was really fun to play frisbee and soccer at the beach with them. We went to the jardín botánico and did a zip-line/ropes course and it was awesome. We visited the Naval Museum and climbed in the capsule that saved the miners.

In addition, we had sleepovers almost every night - either upstairs or downstairs. And the five kids had "garbage tournaments" (card game) and some games of bananagrams, spoons, and capture the flag.

It was hard to see them leave.


  1. Grace,
    I wish I could come visit and do all these really fun things. I never knew there was so much to do in Chile! Glad you got to enjoy it all with your cousins.


  2. Hi Gracie,

    The photos are exellent and show how much fun you had with the cousins. You did a nice write-up.

    Missing you,
    Grandma Mary

  3. We're glad you had such a great time. I love all the photos of your activities together. Thanks for the update and keep on writing. Enjoy the warmer weather while you can!

  4. @Deb, Mary and Annie...thanks for comments (I think Grace hasn't seen them yet), but she loves hearing from folks. So thanks. And yes, Annabelle- we are just starting to get some warmer weather in the daytimes at least -it's like someone put the power switch on the sun and it gets really warm in the day - and then at night, brrr. Cuidense mucho, Laura
