We're here! Texas that is. The girls and I flew in from Boston to DFW and thankfully made it safe and sound. We will hang out here for a few days while we wait for Omar and all ~700lbs of our stuff which he's driving this way with my car in tow. I'd say it was a long day for the girls and I, but Omar just started his so in a sense I feel that I got the good end of the bargain.

The flight was great and as in previous trips, I was lucky enough to have Marisa in her own seat (rather than on my lap) for free since the flight was not full. An even rarer thing happened too--both girls fell asleep during our lay over AT THE SAME TIME, in a PUBLIC PLACE, without their bed, and not in the car! I just had to bother another passenger for proof of the moment. I've also convinced myself that this must mean they're still babies.

We're almost home. :)

Walden Pond

This was fun and a nice change from the swimming pools we're use to. I failed to take pictures of Henry David Thoreau's cabin.

So long Canadian geese

We won't be seeing anymore of these...

They are so docile and don't come up behind you like the ones I know.

Look alikes?

I seems I can't get many pictures of Marisa. So many of the ones I take are a blur so I post what I can. She is running around the front of the Harvard Musuem of Natural History. She is 19 months.

Our most frequented spot

Harvard Square

the park by the Charles--there was a little bin with books for the kids to read right next to that cute little table with stuffed animals having a tea party (where Marisa is playing).

Elena says...

Mi cumpleanos es el 17 de noviembre and I'm gamma wear my red vestido con white polka dots.

She doesn't have a red dress with white polka dots. I guess I better start looking for one now.

4th of July

Fireworks on the Charles River

These were the most amazing fireworks we've seen. If you're ever in Boston for the 4th of July don't miss them. They were even worth keeping our girls up until midnight. But luckily, they slept in which is a first since they were newborns!! What a great way to end our time here in Boston.

Poor daddy. They were all over him all night long.
Watching the fireworks up above. Marisa seems a bit confused.
