the plaza like a park

This is Vlapariso a huge shipping port. Even cruise ships dock here.

shopping for lunch just a few miles across town is the jumbo store which is as big or bigger than cotsco

our lunch a churresco has beef, tomatoes and lots mayo. Teresa has a completeo like a hot dog and of course coca cola the members main beverage

walking the streets of vina We bought many treasures to bring home. Jeremy's favorite is so a strange carved Indian. Certain body parts stick out as you pick it up. I wouldn't even put it in my luggage on the trip home. He shows it to everyone. The members are so humble and sacraficed much to feed my son. One man said he is still paying off the food bill. I loved going to church with them, even when I couldn't understand anything. We ate lunch with a Stake President and learned much from him. A man with a great sense of humor. What a great experience.

The corner bakery

Teresa found a few fabric stores but no quilting fabrics.

A family we had lunch with a real enjoyable time and the food was great. It was fun to visit with them thru the help of Jeremy. The girl making the peace sing was so cute and a fun personality. I told Jeremy she was a little spit fire. They wanted it translated. The only translation Jeremy felt would fit was that she was a pit bull. These people (3 generations) live in one house and have small store attached to their house and several computers people come and rent time on to go online. They also had a telephone people could pay to use. They all have cell phones. Even teenagers.

more pictures of the twins.

I went back to Jason and Shelley's the week before Christmas and these are the pictures I took then. The girls are putting some weight on. They are over 6 pounds now. They are so cute. Luke loves them so much. MJ is in pink and Izzy is in purple. Erin took mom shopping and bought her a new dress then they came to hold the babies. I think they sat there and held the babies for 2 hours. It really is great fun, especially if they aren't fussy. Ask Jason, he will tell you. If Jason and Shelley want pictures on their blog they have to take their own.

I had a great time with Jason and Shelley's family for 2 weeks. Luke is so fun. Thankfully the twins came before I had to come home. They are beautiful. I can't wait to see how they change as they grow. Jason andshelley are such good parents. I am blessed

A visit to Washington

The first of September we went to Ryan and Ariane's. We had so much fun. whitney had her 1st birthday while we were there. I will put Ryan's picture in mowing his lawn. Aspen is in 2nd grade. She loves it. Brock is in Kindergarten. He tells me it is hard. Ariane has started her preschool. Trevor probably loves having other kids to play with while his brother and sister are in school. We had to make sure Ariane was taking care of her leg.
