This is Summer in Riachuelo

Spending the afternoon cooling off in the pool.

Eating late and playing round after round of cards until after midnight.

Mi cumple

December 30, 2018

It’s my 9th birthday today and I celebrated Argentina style.

San Martin (the town where Papi grew up)

December 29, 2018

San Martin is the town Papi lived in until he went to college. We’ve had such a great time visiting family, school friends and Papi’s old hang outs from when he was our age.

Ruby and Chiqui have a Lottery shop which was fun to play in.

Tia Chela is 94! (Papi’s father’s sister)

These are pictures of our Great Grandparents!

This is where Papi’s mom and dad are laid to rest.

We had a ton of fun at the park.

And when Papi and mum we’re visiting old friends from his street, we played in front of Papi’s old house, with the next generation of families on the street. Just as Papi did 40 years ago.

Making Empanadas

December 28, 2018

Making empanadas for the whole family requires many hands.

Filling circles of dough with cooked meat, olives and boiled egg.

Folding the circle in half.

Closing them is the tricky bit!

We eventually got the hang of it!

Some people wanted fried and others baked… so we did both!

They were a hit!

Visiting Tia Matilde and Tio Anibal

December 27, 2018

Tia Matilde and Tio Anibal helped us identify family in old photos. There was a really, really old one that was of my Great, Great grandparents on Papi’s moms side.

We also enjoyed their garden, pool and puppies!
