There’s a bug in the house

July 21, 2014

There was a little bug buzzing around our breakfast this morning, annoying us all.  But I had an idea.  Leaving my breakfast half eaten I ran off to the play room, returning moments later…

"I'll sword the bug", I said.

“I’ll sword the bug”, I announced.

But then I lost it and had to ask Ana, "We'd it go?"

Heee yaaaa!  I think I got it.

Heee yaaaa! Ridding the house of annoying bugs since 2014.

After the party finished the fun didn't stop.  We played in the splash pad and got a ride on the carousel before going home.

Mum: Come here my little teddy bear.

Rafa: I’m not a teddy bear, I’m spider man!

Schoooooo.  I'm BIG spiderman.

I liked the oaks the best, although this one is so tall he needs a stake to hold him up.

I liked the oaks the best, we got a live oak and a red oak positioned to (eventually) block where we get the most afternoon sun.

Raffy liked the bottle brush which should flower soon, with a bit more care and watering.

Celebrating

We decided to celebrate the WC finals whether we came first or second.

We decided to celebrate the WC finals whether we came first or second.  We celebrated it Argentinean style, of course.

Even though we didn't get the cup, Papi was still happy at the BBQ.

So we didn’t win the cup, but Papi was still happy at the BBQ.

It was a super duper hot day.  Thank goodness for the pool!
