Visiting the Blancos

As many of you know one of my dearest and best friends is Daymara. We met in Graduate School and she is my Venezuelan sister. We have been friends for a long time now and we always try to get up to see her and her parents when they visit. This past Saturday was the “Come see Mama and Papa Blanco party.” So Claire, Grammy and I made the trip up the hill (not to Venezuela – maybe some day). It was a lot of fun. The Blancos do not speak English, but neither does Claire, yet. Luckily “baby” is international. They had a lot of fun visiting, chatting and giving high fives.

Also while we were there we got to see my other dearest and best friend from Graduate School, Isabel, and her adorable kiddos. Her parents are also visiting. They are from China.

And one other note from the party, Claire found a new boyfriend, Mateo. He is a 21 month old blond Italian of few words. She was just chasing him and patting him and putting her head on him. Mateo didn’t have a clue as to what to do. What do we have in store for us?
