A day at the 'Parque'

Our family enjoyed some time at a beautiful park hidden away behind some neighborhoods. There were riding trails, a lake complete with an island and paddle boats, a large playground area and (of course) five soccer fields! We decided to have a picnic in the park and enjoyed some time outdoors together.

The regulations for safety are not quite what they would be in the U.S.A. - notice the half-pipe type 'ride'; a person holds onto two chains and the platform can move under his feet up and down the half-pipe! It is really fun and takes coordination... but I am not quite sure we would see that in the U.S.A. - it's a bit too dangerous!

We hope you enjoy seeing the pictures - we enjoyed taking them.

I'm glad to see you all doing well. It looks like every day is an adventure and surely the kids will have stories to tell!

We miss youall here, but I won't begrudge you the chance to enjoy another culture. The kids will probably learn a lot of Spanish which can only help themhere in Texas if that is where you come back to. Give them all a hug
from us.
