2 Weeks With Grandma / 2 semanas con abuela

Well our 2 weeks with grandma have come to an end. Grandma left to go home 3 days ago and we all miss her! Yesterday we were walking to a store and Aitana asked "will grandma be there?" Sadly I told her no, but we are looking forward to spending Christmas with her. Here are a few pics of our fun 2 weeks.

Las dos semanas con la abuela llegaron a su fin. Abuela volvió a casa hace tres días y ya la echamos de menos todos. Ayer cuando íbamos a la tienda, Aitana preguntó "¿y abuela va a estar allí?" Lamentablemente tuve que decirle que no. Sin embargo esperamos con alegría los días que pasaremos en casa de abuela esta navidad. Para que se entretengan aquí les van algunas fotos de estas dos últimas semanas.


Time with our cousin Krista / Momentos con nuestra prima Krista
The kids were so happy that grandma brought Krista as her traveling companion since grandpa has turned into a home body. That´s O.K. Owen, I know that it is a rough flight!
-
Los niños estaban contentísimos de que abuela trajera a Krista como acompañante de viaje ya que el abuelo últimamente es todo un ermitaño. Está bien. Owen, ya sabemos lo largo y difícil que es el viaje.




Jacob´s tour of the store / El tour de Jacob en la tienda
Jacob had to give his cousin a tour of the store and point out all of the things that he thinks stink like Jamon Serrano and fresh fish and eel...Don´t ask about the last pic, I guess that´s what you get when you give a 12 and 8 year old free reign with the camera.

Jacob tuvo que darle a su prima un tour de la tienda y señalar todo aquello que él piensa que apesta, como el jamón serrano, el pescado fresco y la anguila...No me pregunten que pasó en la última foto, imagino que eso es lo que pasa cuando le das a una niña de 12 y a un niño de 8 libertad con la cámara.


The Beach, Aqualand, and Parque Marítimo / La playa, Aqualand y el Parque marítimo
Water, water and more water! Maybe that explains why Aitana is now in agony with an ear infection!
-
¡Agua, agua y más agua! Quizá eso explique porqué Aitana está sufriendo de infección de oído.


At last Dr. Pepper / Por fin Dr. Pepper
We spent 5 nights in Costa Adeje (the south-west part of the island) where most English and German tourists spend their holiday. All the restaurants advertise English breakfast and the stores sell things not commonly found on the island.....including Dr. Pepper at only .85 euros a can! Diego couldn´t pass it up!

Pasamos 5 noches en Costa Adeje (la parte suroeste de la isla) donde la mayoría de los turistas ingleses y alemanes pasan las fiestas. Todos los restaurantes incluyen desayunos británicos y las tiendas venden cosas que comunmente no se encontrarían en la isla...incluyendo el Dr. Pepper a sólo 85 céntimos la lata. ¡Diego no puedo dejar pasar tal oportunidad!


Here are some other pics at the aparthotel where 85% of the guests were English speaking.

Sites of Tenerife / Lugares de Tenerife
We did lots of walking to see the sites of the city...as much as we could do with so many kids!
-
Caminamos muchísimo para ver algunos de los lugares de la ciudad...tantos como pudimos con 5 niños.

I've loved catching up on your blog. Congrats on the girl--3 girls and 2 boys is the way to go, I'm telling you. And we just let Sariah have the spoon, too, except she's a bit younger so not so successful. Oh well. We miss you guys, and I'm looking forward to having Ryan in the nursery by the time you get back. Hugs to all from the Haynes!

I LOVE that you're blogging! Ryan is SO big and BLONDE! I miss that little kid - and you! I'm glad you're doing well. I hate that you're missing the olympics! That's nuts! Try YouTube! Maybe you can find some amazing footage of Phelps winning all his golds! I've also enjoyed watching Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson take the Gold and Silver in the Women's Gymnastics! MaryLou was there cheerin' 'em on! :) Miss the Hamm brother this year though.

Anyway - nuff of that. Much Love! We miss you guys! It's not the same!

love, mj
