This weekend we had a birthday picnic and the botanical garden. The kids had a blast and met up with several of their friends!
Making funny faces with Isadora, 20month old daughter of my best friend Mariana, whom I have known for 20 years!
Playing with Ben and Bento, sons of my great friends from vet school, Velloso and Carin (Bento, 14 months) and Gustavo and Adreza (Ben, 3 1/2 years)
When I see these friendships starting (they recognize each other and even ask about some friends at random moments) with the kids of some of my dear friends, it warms my heart to think that (hopefully) in several years from now they will still be friends. I am also so happy we are in Brazil for this period, as the kids get hugged, kissed and given attention much more then in any other country we have lived!
