USA–July 2014

Well, we’re back in Argentina after a week and a half of time in the US seeing friends and family–plus a few days of work. No rest for the exhausted, apparently!

We had two HUGE suitcases that we filled up with all sorts of goodies–so much so that they each weighed 85 lbs! This made for lots of fun navigating the various airports–and a lot of telling overly enthusiastic remis drivers to ten cuidado, or be careful, as they tried to hoist them into the car.  We carried a lot of work stuff, a lot of gifts for coworkers, and a HUGE pile of textbooks back. (More on these exciting personal goals later!)

So, what did we do in the states? We saw these two cuties–who we miss very much. This is the infamous Tesla (the rabbit who was supposed to be in Argentina) and Mr. Winks the guinea pig (who is geriatric and is not travel-friendly):

We had a lot of fun family time–including a picnic complete with a campfire, fireworks, and smores!

I swear everyone was much happier than this photo may let on.

We tackled our overgrown lawn a little bit (and had words with the lawn care guy who was supposed to be taking care of it).  A vine even grew up from our pergola, onto our telephone/cable wires, and INTO our bedroom window, curling around the Venetian blinds!

Finally, we ended our trip watching this happy couple tie the knot near King of Prussia. Congratulations, Keith and Sarah!

A gorgeous, radiant bride…

A heartfelt and teary ceremony…

And a great reception!

Oh, and Argentina got second place in the World Cup. 🙂

It was a great time home. We wish we would have taken two weeks! We didn’t have much time for ourselves or on our own–but we did manage to squeeze in one movie (Transformers 4) and the requisite movie theatre popcorn (a big craving of mine).

It looks like the next guaranteed time back is our official home leave in December for the holidays!
