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.
