Zoo Day

Today we had an impromptu visit to the Recife zoo, including a PONY RIDE! 

 Pony! Pony! Pony!
$1.79 well spent!

 According to Kylie, a parrot says "Cock-a-doodle-doo"

Time to cook!

July Update - iPhone Edition!

So my phone is old and has probably been to the beach about 400 times and contains at least 2 cups of sand. It has also been dropped, "played" with by Kylie and traveled all around the world with us, so maybe I should stop complaining about my computer saying that "this device had a problem last time it was connected and the computer does not recognize it"...blah blah blah...just give me my G-D pictures so I can make a blog post already. Whew! Maybe it's time to visit T-Mobile for an upgrade! 

Anyway, here is a little glimpse into Eric and Kylie's world:

 Guess who loves I ♥ Asia Market Dublin bag?
(p.s. I think our housekeeper thinks I'm insane!)

 Homemade breakfast sausage day!
Ready to freeze!

 Kylie on her beach chair

 I'll call this 100% homemade pita and hummus...
...Thankfully, I didn't have to grow the pine nuts myself *thanks Costco*!

 Chocolate babka rising! Yum!

 Best friends

 Rockin' doggie!
(which coincidentally is "sleeping"ever since the eyeballs sticker peeled off one day)

 Ready to ride!

 America kiosk(e)

 Happy 10th Anniversary!

 Pear, almond and cheese Danish!

Kylie wake up!

 Brush, brush, brush, brush, brush...
Comb, comb, comb, comb, comb~

 Just reading Beauty and the Beast on playpen cleaning day...

Guess who got a McCrown from the McDonald's Sundae stand at the mall today!?!

July Update

The World Cup has come and gone with a victory by Germany. Our colleagues are starting to depart and move onto they're next assignments. We're starting to finalize our plans for coming back home this winter, so overall, it's been a quiet, but interesting month. Kylie is growing cuter by the minute! She's starting to learn some Portuguese so that she can chit-chat with the other kids at the park, and just got her first tricycle!

 Rainy day fun with a homemade choo-choo train 
(aka a plastic tub and a piece of string!)

 Oops! Conductor Autumn must have been speeding!

 Helmets! So we can be safe!

 Snuggled in for Sesame Street with Hello Kitty and Pierre

 Playground fun with Aya and Ben

Brrr! It sure is bem-frio (pretty cold) in "winter" here!
