This is my baby on our first holiday. We had a wonderful relaxing time but it went way too quick.

We taught our baby to build sandcastles and fish.

It was sunny but still a bit cold.

Come on Kel!!

hurry up!

18 of September

Today 18th of September is our national day, we celebrate the first independence movementes by Chileans (Spanish descendants) when the Spanish king Ferdinad II was captured by Napoleon and replaced by Napoleon's brother, in 1810. Our independence came 10 years later on February 12, 1818.
The picture you see above is our national dance, the "cueca". This day is celebrated with BBQs, empanadas, traditional Chilean games and cueca. Unfortunatly few people know how to dance cueca, we didn't like it at school... shame on us! There are also rodeos and children like rising kites.
Now we are going to my grandparent's for lunch to celebrate de "18th" as we call it. Cheers!

Found you

right in the middle!!

2nd time

I found it again! Hoorah!

First time I found it in Spanish. I think I am OK now.

Find me!

Just so you have a laugh... last Saturday I went to a dress up party and the theme was "60's, 70's and 80's". Can you find me? I think I went dressed a bit like the early 90's, but it doesn't matter, everybody had a great laugh specially with my hair!!!
