Como Vie!












Last week we went to Brasil for a quick trip. It was amazing. I have traveled there several times before but I am in love with this new town we discovered called Laranjeiras. It was one of those trips that will always be very special. No matter what went wrong or right we all just loved being together and enjoyed every moment. The people in Brasil were so kind as always, the food was fabulous, and the scenery never ceases to amaze me.
I was a little concerned my baby boy would not be his charming self through all the traveling and activities. I was so very wrong, he was a dream. I know he was also having the time of his life because he was so happy. Which in turn made me and Matt so happy too. He was fascinated by all the new experiences. The top of his list had to be the sand. He couldn't contain himself and had to take a mouth full every time I turned my head. I didn't know we brought sand all the way home with us until I changed his diaper yesterday. Best of all he has been dressed in pants and long sleeves since he was born, I just loved seeing his chubby little arms and legs all week long.

What a cute baby. Love seeing him in his swimsuit and glasses. He is enjoying not wearing pants and long sleeved shirts.

Just a quick little trip, huh! Samuel is my absolute favorite! I don't know what I love the most...his chubber legs, his cute, round face, or his fun personality that he has! He is so animated for only being 6/7 months. We can't wait to see him again! When will that be BTW?

Ashley I am so jealous of you!! Brasil is great and I'd love to go, but mostly I'm jealous of your skinny butt. You're at the fun stage - not pregnant and enjoying your baby! What a cutie-boy!

Hey Ash! I am so glad to have found you on here! It has been so long! Your baby boy is darling! I think it is so great that you guys can travel with him. It's a dream for me one day, no kids yet! You'll have to let me know next time you visit we should all get together! Take Care!

Wow, what great pictures. Looks like you had a great time, and yes, sand is good for you. It cleans them right out! :) I used to have one that ate rocks.
