Fairfax Fun

We've been having a blast. A good proof we have way more than we need is that here we live in a small 2 bedroom apartment, with only the basics (table, chairs, 2 couches, dressers, beds. That's it), and just the few toys we could haul in El Cangri's backpack. And we are content; the children aren't traumatized. I bought them a long, long jump rope yesterday, a case of sidewalk chalk and the owner of a toy store gave us about a dozen balloons she was going to pop at the end of the day. I can't describe how much fun the kids have had with these few items. Ah! I'm forgetting the writing stuff: notebooks, pencils, crayons, and books. In fact today I took a picture that summarizes in a nutshell, or a stroller to be accurate, what I need to survive:
  • baby sling, any kind will do, but the mei tei is doing all the work these days
  • my very "green" hemp messenger bag with diapers, sunscreen, bug repellent spray, treats
  • phone
  • a book. Now I'm reading "Romeo and Juliet." Don't get me started
  • SIGG water bottles. They're cute, safe and so useful!
  • the only missing thing is my mate set (it was too hot to drink mate at the park)


So, instead of writing and writing about our activities, I'll let you watch this slideshow--gotta love picasa :)
Incuded are: pics with my friend G's boys, airport and flight odyssey, water fountain, pool, and park. Warning: you might fall in love watching this. I know I do every time I watch it.
