Whew – it’s Friday already and I haven’t posted since last week….wow…where has the time gone? What have we been up to, you might wonder? Well, we attended our first birthday celebration here in Brazil. To be specific, it was a little girl’s 3rd birthday party that was celebrated at a playground with lots of (German!) food and drink and many, many games for the kids including one of my all-time favorite German birthday party games called “Schokoladenessen.” (Google it for more details – it has to be one of the most fun games to be played at kids’ parties!) We also ventured to the Mercado Municipal in the Center (Centro) of Sao Paulo for a nice lunch and to get to know the city a little better… what’s in store for us next week? Luca’s first haircut!!! And yes, pictures will follow!
