We are now visiting our family and especially a beautiful new baby!
My niece had her first baby in February. She is four months now and we are taking her all in, as much as possible!
It has been really special to spend these days with my family and get to know a whole new world and see my niece in a whole new role. She is a wonderful Mother and I look forward to watching her, her husband and child continue to grow.

I have been a bit absent, but sometimes I just find myself enjoying life and not the computer. I enjoy reading all of your blogs, but please excuse my absence of sharing my world.
I will return with pictures and more stories soon!

Back again, home sweet home

We had a long journey, but we made it safely and are now enjoying our beautiful home again.

We stayed in a great hotel right in the Zurich airport. Check out this cool floor to ceiling wine...well, wine holder, for lack of a better word.

The weather has been beautiful with the sun kissing our cheeks and the air keeping us cool.

We had a couple visit us already that we knew in Maracaibo, Venezuela. They happened to be in the US visiting some other friends. they stayed with us for two days, which was a great way to share our house with them.

This week, we are waiting for some furniture deliveries from our storage of goods from Rio being held in Houston and outdoor furniture we purchased from Restoration Hardware.

Ah...eating my favorite cereal, Special K, with fresh fruits has been wonderful.

Check out this cute car we rented. It is a Kia orange, love that for the summery days here in Key West!

This has been a random thoughts being put in any order post but...
Life is is nice to be back!

Today (Thursday) is the last day of school...half a day ending with water balloon tossing and ice cream.
We leave tomorrow morning on our journey to our house.

It will take us 4 airports and planes, a total of almost 31 hours, plus one rental car and 3 hour drive....

I can't wait!

See you all on the other side of the world.

But before I leave, check out these photos of my Amaryllis and other plants, and a few scenes from Atyrau:
