It had been a while since i last got to visit my family. When Shal and I walked in the kids were playing, and everyone just seemed to be having a lazy day. It was raining outside and Shal and I both looked like it was one of those days no one wants to get out of bed.
We got started on some homework, as usual, then read and played around. The Family just got a new cellphone, we exchanged numbers and the kids played with the phone and took pictures of us looking awful. After a while a few more neighbors rolled in and all the women in the room began to cook. I was a bit excited yet sacred, I can not handle spicy food for the life of me… I think nacho cheese is spicy and peperony makes my eyes cry. When they asked me if I wanted chili I politely declined and explained my fear of spicy food, to my surprise the food was spicy even without much “spice” or any at all as they assured me! haha
There was nothing i could do but eat and drink a lot of water with every bite, also one of the kids loved the food so much she sat next to me and we shared the plate, well more like she ate most of it. After i was done eating and my eyes hand finally stopped crying we played some more and had a small photo shoot session.
We tried telling them about the Zoo and said that if the weather was nicer for our next visit we could take them there…
Also, does anyone know of any easter events in the neighborhood or even at Loyola for kids? I think it would be fun to introduce them to the tradition and the kids would have a blast picking eggs and participating on different activities.
