Summer @ CR

This summer we were able to spend 3 weeks in Costa Rica.
As we are coming in for the landing you got so excited you started screaming: "mira mama, mira...  el mejor pais del mundo!".
Y como no? Si es aqui donde esta la gente que mas quieres.

Playing dominoes with Grandma early in the morning

She also took you shopping and you picked out this dress 

and these shiny sandals too.

You spent a lot of time with Abuelita Vera who has amazing strength and is getting better everyday.

Got your nails done with Tia Nena,

as well as built houses and played wolf to your hearts content

You got to hang out with your cousins
Those you look up to like Tere

and Sarah.

And those who look up to you like Amelia,

who calls you Yuuu and follows you around much like you follow Tere around.

One of the things you miss the most about Costa Rica are your friends.  You were born into this great neighborhood where you had friends you spent time with every day.  Renata and Constanza were your closest friends in the hood, in fact I have a clear memory of you waking up and crawling to the balcony and screaming "enata!!! enata!!!!", in fact  "enata" was one of the first words you ever uttered.  
We have come to realize that they were the closest thing to a sibling you have ever had and it is no wonder you miss them so much :(

So it was great to see all of you re unite.
Bella, Tu, Cons, Tuchis y Dieguito

En el brinca de la casa de los abuelos con las chicas

Todas con la misma expresión ;)

Han crecido tanto todas!  
(sniff sniff...ya me puse melancólica)

Tambien vimos a Derek y a Giuli.
Me encanta que seas amiga de los hijos de mi amigo de la infancia, le da una continuidad a la vida que es simplemente maravillosa.
Siempre que se ven gozan parejo!

We enjoyed some time at the beach with Abuelita Emy and Abuelito. You had a blast and I left the camera :(

Gone are the days when I could talk you into resting indoors from 11am to 2pm to shield you from the heavy sun. Gone too, are the days when I could talk you into taking a nap. This time around you would not leave the water and by the end of the day you barely made it through dinner. 

One night you didn't make it all...

It was a great summer! 
Today I am grateful for family, friends and sunny days.
