Happy Valentine's Day
We had a wonderful lunch yesterday at a place called Punta Azul that is right down the street from our apartment. We may need to make that a regular Saturday lunch routine. It was delicious (we both had seafood) and had a great atmosphere. We took long Valentine's Day naps then headed out to a party given by some of the course particpants. The kids had a really fun time playing with some new friends being silly and dancing and even put their feet in the pool. I was thankful for some time to get to know some of the people Rhett works with everyday a little better. Everyone is so nice and it is such a fun international mix. When we left the party we asked Claire if she had fun at the party and she replied "Yes, I did! Even though we didn't have cake". It seems as though a party to a 3 year old is synonymous with birthday cake! We explained that not all parties are for birthdays and there isn't always cake!
Here are the kids at the party last night with their friend (and baby sitter) Luella from Canada and Claire's new best friend from Ireland, Sarah. Believe it or not we managed to keep either one of them from falling (or jumping) into the pool! Claire's new responsiblity is holding the money in the taxi and giving it to the driver when we get out. When we got out of the cab last night coming home from the party she handed the driver the money and as she was getting out of the cab said "Gracias for the ride". That may be one of my favorite Claire quotes ever. She was so cool and casual about it. Hilarious.
