After this trip, the next weekend we all went up to Madrid. I think Cyd blogged about that earlier so I won't add anything more, it was a great trip and I hope that we go up there frequently to see Margarita and her family. We did stop in Toledo on the way up. It's a magical city, we'll probably go up there again in the future. The cathedral there is one of the best. It's pretty touristy, but we had a good time.
So now back to our regular life. Day to day stuff is pretty normal, but we're trying to integrate the boys into regular activities. They were great swimmers back in San Diego so we put them into classes here in Rota. Here's a picture of Colby hamming it up on his way to his swim lessons. Here's a secret, the girl in the picture has a crush on him, lord knows why. I guess he's cute.
Here's another shot of swimming from a different perspective. I'm being cruel though, he's really enjoying his swimming. It gives him a chance to do something he's good at (swim) and to talk to other kids. James is growin up and maturing, I have to give him that.
Now back to touring. These are shots from our trip to Madina Sidona. It's an Andalusian white town, the boys had a good time running around and we got some history touring.
This a picture of the boys looking out over the valleys of southern Spain. I hope something rubs out on them on all these trips.
Jo and I on the march. Before this we had just headed up a church tower, he's pretty fatigued at this point.Jo on a pause.
A typical map check.
Now back to real life. A fun thing that we started to do during the swimming lessons of the kids is to take Jo bowling. He's really taken to it and loves it. The other kid love bowling to. I think they just like the colors of the balls Here's some shots of them getting down:
I'm looking back at such bowling skills! Check out Colby in action! I see a future kingpin!
Here's a sweet shot of Jo in the interum. He's waiting for his "Bop", milk and strawberry syrup in a sippy cup. It's his manna, the only thing he's looking for to start his day. We love him but it's becoming kind of tiresome.
I promise I'll get Portugal in tomorrow. It's a lot to catch up on. I guess this blogging business is more than I though, I owe Cyd some props.
