While it’s a very nice change from Winter, the heat and humidity have been pretty high the last couple weeks. We’ve been enjoying the sun as much as possible, without overexposing ourselves (the sun is VERY strong here and it’s easy to burn if you’re not careful).
Over the weekend, we took a blanket and some snacks down to the grassy area on the Rambla to relax in the shade. Beware: you even get lots of sun in the shade here.
Zoë had a great time running around and playing with her new toys. Santa brought her some bubbles and she got to play with them for the first time. She had a blast! We went through the entire bottle of bubbles, so we’ll have to pick up some more for her.
She also got a couple more boxes of gifts from family in the States. Pretty soon she’s going to start thinking that she should get gifts all the time!
She got a couple of new books and new movies from Auntie Tiffany, Uncle Jared and cousins Dayla and Brody. She’s been watching Tinker Bell and Hotel for Dogs a lot and reading her new books.
She got another package from Aunt Leslie, Uncle Ted and Cousins Jennifer and Joe. This time she got a Tinker Bell doll and a Tinker Bell short-sleeved hoodie. The package also had a baby doll from Nanny and Papa. She has been carrying her two new dolls around religiously this week and has insisted on wearing the hoodie all the time even thought it's been so hot!
She also got a package from Mimi. Lots of cute clothes and a new set of dishes. Perfect for her new kitchen! She’s been cooking for us and making us yummy drinks all week.
Mimi also sent a bunch of great gifts for baby Kaylee. Less than four weeks until her expected arrival!
