It was Alison's birthday today! Coincidentally, it was a national holiday in Brazil, so Autumn didn't have to work! We started off the day right with birthday cake from our favorite bakery, Casa dos Doces, and then headed down to the beach. It was such a beautiful, hot day; perfect beach weather. Also, we just got Kylie's new baby life jacket in the mail, so we tested that out with great success (although, as usual, the Brazilians practically laughed us off the beach when they saw it!).
For dinner, we attempted to go out for churrasco. After driving around in a taxi for an hour to three different closed restaurants, our cab driver mentioned that it was Good Friday, and that it was a fish-only type of holiday. Luckily, one of our fave seafood restaurants, Alfaiate, was open! We shared a coconut stuffed with shrimp and mashed potatoes as well as some caldinhos (tiny soups) that were also great!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALISON!
