Colombia Part 2

I wonder how many posts it will take to show all about our trip? 10 days in Colombia and choose between of all the many pictures taken?

We'll see...

We went hiking

Fed the macaws

Visited High School Girlfriends

Visited some family

Went horse back-riding


And went back home to the U.S

I am happy to report that once again the boys were AWESOME in the airplane! They are always so good :) 

It is always bittersweet to leave. Bitter because we leave behind my dad, sweet because we are going back home. 

We had a great time, and I wouldn't change anything about it, well maybe just the fact that we got food poisoning. It was bad I tell you. I would never wish that to anybody! 

One thing I did learn though was that whenever your plans don't turn as the way you wanted them, just go with the flow, and enjoy the present moment. We did not get to do some of the things that I had literally planned by day, but that was fine, we did what had to be done and remembered that our main reason of going to Colombia was to see my dad and spend time with him, no matter where it was.

Colombia part 1

 I promised to post about our visit to my dad in Colombia and I am sorry it has taken too long, but we've been trying to catch up with stuff around the house.
Colombia was amazing and even though it is a third world country with not even half the comforts and luxuries United States has which many people take for granted, I still love the county I was born and I grew up in. We didn't do as much as we usually do, but our intention was mainly for my dad to meet little David and oh boy, it was so worth it!

The first day, we went to downtown Chia to see and feed the pigeons, and let me tell you our boys and my nephew totally enjoyed it! They disturbed the quite and peaceful afternoon Chia town square had while they were going crazy chasing and screaming for the pigeons. Those kids had a blast!

So tired of running and screaming, we stopped at one of many little stores in the little plaza to have a drink.

Later that day, my sisters and I spent some time with my dad.

Next morning, we had an amazing homemade breakfast and Joe provided some juggling show for the boys

Went to the park, had lunch, then ice cream

Then off we went to spend a couple of days in a house in a warm weather city. This is one of the things I miss, being able to take off and go to a warmer weather, get some sun, play in pool, all that fun stuff.  There we got to get in the pool, play with bunch of animals, eat lots of yummy food etc etc.

Isn't the landscape so pretty?

How about the hand layout floor?

Pieces of me :)

Cloudy day, but we had fun!

My dad...I miss him!
