This week I traveled to São Luís, Maranhão for work. The city is located on Brazil's northeastern coast. I enjoyed my trip very much. We got a lot of work done, and saw a lot of this beautiful and historic Brazilian city.
Time to represent!
That is a lot of meat. Like, way a lot. It sure was good, though.
São Luís is famous for its beautiful Portuguese tile on the outside of the buildings. It makes the city bright and colorful!
Downtown São Luís.
A delicious caipirinha after a hard day's work!
Enjoying sunset at the beach.
Beautiful, wild beach.
Enjoying a Jesus soda, a soda found only in Maranhão. It was very sweet.

In between birthday parties and starting to plan our upcoming move, we've been hanging out at the beach, staying in on our (hopefully) last few days of the rainy season, and getting crafty!
YEE-HAW! Ride 'em cowgirl!
Mama and baby!
Contemplating the big move!
Night time relaxing with Star Trek or The Big Bang Theory!
Kylie wanted us to wear matching hats to the beach, but THEN we'd just look silly! haha!

Today was Kylie's big day...birthday party day! She had eight little friends over to help her celebrate. In the end, our house was covered in a thin layer of chips and frosting, but it was well worth it. Kylie had a fabulous party, thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with her!
Kylie's birthday cake, chocolate cupcakes with mango buttercream, made specially by Kylie's super talented daddy.
The decorations are ready!
Funny hats? Check!
Balloons in my princes castle? For me?? (Only about five of the balloons flew out the window, so that's good lol.)
Eric made this amazing balloon animal palm tree.
And he made this popular raspberry punch with pretty frozen ice balls. He could be a pintrest star, seriously.
Nine children in your house under the age of 5? Everyone needs a margarita. The good stuff, made with Herradura.
Snacks in place.
Best friends wearing silly hats together.
Here's to two years of successful parenting. Baby''s happy, healthy, and alive. Good work.
The animal masks were especially popular amongst party-goers.
"Mama, I a cow!!"
Love with mama.
Recife's happiest birthday girl.
The man who made all this possible, Kylie and her superstar daddy.

Today was Kylie's big day! A whole two years old. Two brings many changes for Kylie. Soon she gets to take vitamins, turn her car seat around, sleep in a big girl bed, drink out of real cups...so many changes! For today, though, we get to enjoy cake and presents. Looking forward to Kylie's birthday party this Saturday!
Happy birthday Kylie!!
