Sunny Sun Days

Sunny days are holidays here. Two Sundays ago, Sodam, David, and I went to the beach to enjoy the warmth and the atmosphere was reminiscent of the 4th of July or something.

Vendors and artisans line the boardwalk along the beach. Kids run by shooting bubble guns at each other and dodging the grownups. The smell of ocean and churros (a delicious Chilean pastry) fills the air. Street musicians play guitars, drums, and strange instruments and a little further up a puppeteer puts on a show.  A spray paint artist demonstrates his talent as people gather around watching in amazement. Families and awkward couples lounge in the grass of the park next to the ocean and kids take turns rolling around inside of huge inflatable balls that someone brought.

The smiles and laughter and sunshine and festivities are contagious and I can’t wait for summer.

This cutie came over to us and she was so cute I couldn’t even. She stole Sodam’s Coca-Cola and grinned at us for like five minutes and talked to us in baby Spanish which was better than mine.

Her mom is super pretty and looks like one of my cousins. She told us the girl’s name and it was really unique but I can’t remember it now unfortunately.  She also traded Sodam’s Coca Cola for a water bottle when the girl wasn’t paying attention. Mom Power!

After the little girl grew bored with us, she ran over to the boy playing soccer (fútbol) and stole his ball. Super mom, the boy’s big brother, and us onlookers got a good laugh out of it! Mom gave the ball back to the boy and then bought a yellow inflatable ball for her girl.

Fútbol boy and his big brother played in the grass in front of us almost the entire time we were there.  The little boy was so freaking cute! With his little curls and fancy footwork I could tell he’s definitely gonna be the World Cup champion years later.

Being in Chile is a humbling experience because the three-year-olds are better at fútbol and speaking Spanish than I am.

This little girl is a princess from a fairy tale.

The beach at sunset glows golden. It’s beautiful and the picture can’t do it justice.

Feeding Ducks

Last week my family went to Bellefonte and we fed the ducks.

There was also a huge yellow fish! I tried to get a good picture of it, but it is very difficult to get a picture of something under the water from above the water.

Speaking of ducks, I used to own a duck. It’s name was Freddie. We thought Freddie was a boy until Freddie laid an egg. She was a cute Freddie duck. The end.

Winston and Window.

It’s nap time for Winston, but he’s just so cute I can’t resist interrupting his slumbers with a photoshoot!

He woke up and started drinking water out of my owl mug.

Then he discovered The Window.  It’s a rainy day, and the water droplets clung to the screen. Winston watched the birds and horses for an entire five minutes before he got distracted by my laptop power cord.

He’s literally the cutest cat ever. And he’s sort of dominating my blog so I hope all of my followers like kittens.

Of Cats and Laundry Bags.

 Winston loves this thing.

The green thing is my sister’s laundry bag hamper thing whatever it’s called. I put Winston in it just to see what he would do. He looked up at me and then pounced at the button things at the bottom. He soon figured out that if he jumped up, his weight would knock it over. Then he discovered that it rolls when he walks around inside of it. And it makes cool noises when he scratches it! Best new toy ever!

Winston hid under my guitar stand and watched Tater, poised to pounce, and Tater glared at him, tail twitching irritably. “I dare you.”

Pretty kitty. He’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!!

Are they not just so freakin cute?

I also love to post pictures of my pets. I hope y’all don’t mind cause I sure don’t! 😉
