Dad went to his last Sushi class this Saturday and during the week he prepared some delightful sushi for my Mom´s friends and since I visited him I could taste some of his new specialty!
And this week it felt that we were eating , visiting and tasting everything Oriental as you can see on the next pictures.

Close to our house, there´s a chinese Buddhist Temple called Templo Zu Lai with its precise layout and harmonious structure and it is praised for its surrounding tranquil environment.

The next day there would be a great event for the Year of the Dragon , so there is a beautiful one and in ancient China, the celestial Dragon represents an emperor and power. Today, it is the ultimate auspicious symbol of success and happiness.

Now you can see a photo took by my husband who spent one week in Japan, this was taken from the hotel he stayed , on the 40th floor, by night. Isn´t Hamamatsu beautiful?

And he is back after a long week , we missed him so much!

He had some time for shopping and he bought these great magazines and books for me, isn´t he lovely? And some delicious green tea from his Japanese friend.

In Dad´s absence, baby César behaved very well and I can´t tell how much my little girl helped me in everything. She´s learning how to take care of her little brother so well , she´s lovely and kind and very patient with him.

And here is Daddy , welcome back home!!!
Home, sweet , home.

How did you like this "Oriental" week with us? Have a wonderful week and may the celestial Dragon bring great good luck to everyone!

Awesome day

We´ve been to this fabulous hotel that´s located just one hour and a half from our home, an old farm from the year 1750, very very old.

The kids Camila and her friend Helena had a great time for there were some guys that took them for a short canoe trip , they could touch an owl and swim and play in the great lake that Linksurrounds the farm.

Nature everywhere, this is what kids need these days...

And my Dad took good care of my baby boy who was enchanted by the pool.
Playing with mom´s bag and feeling the fresh air of the mountains, so good!

And the girls swam in the warm water pool and they got so tired at the end of the day that they fell asleep on our way home.
We really had a great time , going out sometimes feels really amazing!

I hope you enjoyed this small trip with us ! Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

Pipoca (popcorn)

Who is this new fluffy little puppy playing with baby César?

Running and playing with Camila?

It´s me, I´m PIPOCA, Camila´s new puppy, the newest member of the family! Now we are five , I´m very messy but very cute, too ;o)

I still cry when my folks go to sleep at night but in the morning I´m the first one to say hi to Mom jumping and playing whatever she´s doing.
Mom is still learning to love me for I am kind of messy girl and she prays everyday that I don´t become a "Marley" ,hehe!

Wishing you all a great new year and a wonderful week, too!
