Riding the Rail

These days I never know what Sergio is going to get up to.

Turkey Sloth?

Being someone who loves to decorate, Thanksgiving has always been the little snack between Halloween and Christmas as holidays go. And I truly enjoy the reflective nature of this holiday.

We May Be In Trouble …

We may be in trouble folks. Sergio has figured out that newborn size clothes fit him and he is so stinkin’ cute I cannot stop laughing.

Sergio’s First Selfie

Sergio was quite excited to share with you the island where he grew up, Isla Escudo de Veraguas, which is off the coast of Panama.
