Joy to the World

It was a great, joyful weekend of spending time with my family here in San Miguel.  My son John and Matilda and Sebastian.  Matilda is almost 5 1/2 now and Sebastian is 3 1/2.  They are adorable, if I do say so myself. Sweet, sweet children.

One of the fun things we did was go to Juarez Park and play in the newly refurbished kids playground area.  It used to be a dusty, dirty, tired, place with worn out and dangerous equipment.

The difference is truly amazing and visually beautiful.

Where there is equipment like this climbing thing, the flooring material is spongy to prevent the kids from being hurt.

Prior to going to the park, we stopped at the Organic Market to see all the fresh produce, cheeses and to get something to eat.  The children got to pick out what they wanted to wear.  Mati picked a new yellow dress her Daddy bought her along with the wedges that Grammy bought in Texas. 

Sebastian LOVES his soccer outfit his Daddy bought for him.   Light weight and loose.  It allows him to run and climb, "like a monkey" he says.  He is a truly fearless three year old.

And, here's the three of them going into John's house.  It's been cold in San Miguel as you can see by the jackets.  Matilda is holding a present she made for her Daddy for Father's Day.  It brought smiles to me to remember all the things the kids made over the years when growing up.  Here's a secret - I still have many of them tucked away. 

A GREAT time was had by all!  Family is everything.  Love abides.

What a wonderful weekend. Great pictures as always. I'm glad they refurbished the playground in Parque Juarez. It was really in need.

It's been 11 months since we've been able to take them anywhere so it was just a priceless time - hopefully soon they'll be at Grammy's piled up on my bed watching Rapunzel or Jungle Book or something fun!

So much fun to be out on the town with the kids. Everyone is just glowing.

Yes Billie, it was fun to sit back and observe and savor every second!
