The Galleria and a look back at 4 years of blogging

The clock had to spring forward an hour today but sadly, spring herself is yet to arrive.

So we headed into the Galleria 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.

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 stumbled upon a rainforest downstairs where we had lunch.  We were most welcome there.

All the animals in the rainforest were very friendly.  We were welcomed by a snake and a monkey kept swinging on the vines over our table.

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.  I wanted to have a go but one of my parents didn't want to get on the ice.  We'll have to wait until we can convince another adult to come with us.

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.

    Wow! How time flies – can’t believe it’s been two years since Rafa was sick – and how different you both look! Happy fourth blog birthday :-)

    Doesn’t Raffy look different to last year! You just look more mature but he looks way bigger! So who didn’t want to go on the ice??

    Big hugs for the blogger, from the far ends of the planet, We treasure every post. What fun to look back at 9 March for the past four years – momentous times, that seem more like yesterday than years ago!

    VJ, Bree and Diana have said it all. What a wonderful four years it has been being able to follow your travels.

    Hey! You can’t trick me! I know that those are elephants not monkeys. Monkey’s ears are much smaller.
