The clock had to spring forward an hour today but sadly, spring herself is yet to arrive.
So we headed into the Galleria Mall in uptown Houston to peer through the windows of Gucci, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, Luis Vuiton, Versace, Bvulgari, Burberry, De Beers and Tiffany’s, to name a few of the shops we weren’t allowed to enter.
We stumbled upon a rainforest downstairs where we had lunch. We were most welcome there.
All the animals in the rainforest were very friendly. Especially the monkey that liked to swing on the vines above our table every 15 minutes.
After lunch we watched the ice skaters in the mall ice rink. I wanted to have a go but one of my parents didn’t want to get on the ice. Sigh. I’ll have to figure out how I’m going to get around that.
Today is also my blog’s fourth birthday. This is what we were up to on March 9th 2013 when the sun came out, briefly, in Portland. March 9th 2012, the day Abuela returned to New Zealand after she visited us when Rafa was sick in hospital. March 9th 2011, when we still lived in Brisbane and my very first post ever, March 9th 2010.

Mum and I had a successful shopping trip looking for outfits for Grandpa John and Jennifer’s wedding.
I tried several princess dresses on over my clothes. I felt beautiful in them all.
But the one we bought is going to arrive in the mail. I left with a bag full of accessories though. This is the first time I’ve gotten matching accessories with a new outfit!
Mum and I then selected several new outfits for Rafa.
All of which had to be tried and tested for basketball-ability.
No! No! No! Raffy. MY new shoes don’t go with YOUR new shark shirt and jeans. Leave the styling to me.

This was supposed to be nap time:
So I bet you can’t guess what happened later:
I thought the cushions needed a hug.
Okay. Maybe napping on the couch would have been a bit comfier.
