Ok, last Sunday was a very special day for me. Why was it a very special day for me? Well on this sunday I got to spend five hours at my boyfriend, Alex´s house with his family. I had so much fun!
At 11:00 in the morning he came to my house to pick me up. Then we took a taxi for about 30 minutes to the city that he lives in, Concepcion. When we got there I was sooooooooo nervous! Well we were walking down the road and his three little brothers ran over to meet us. Chrystopher is 12, Paul is 8 and Rai is 2. They were all so sweet! So we walked with them to their grandparents house. I was even more nervous! And then we turned the corner to the backyard and I was shocked, I was not just meeting his parents, I was meeting his parents, brothers, grandparents, aunt and cousin!Well as soon as I greeted all of them my nerves disapeared because they were all so nice and welcoming.
Soon after I arrived we all got up to play a game of volleyball. It was so much fun, I felt bad though, because I played horribly! Luckily no one seemed to mind (even though my team lost both times) :).
After our exciting vollyball match we sat and talked for a while. I got to learn a little bit about all of their personalities. Paul is crazy, but I love him! He has so much energy and is so curious and he asked me the most random questions, but I was smiling the whole time. Chrystopher is more reserved, but he is so sweet! He would sit there and try to explain everything that I did not understand.
Anyways, after vollyball we all went out to lunch. The resturant that we went to had really good food, of course I got Cebiche (it is one of my favorites!!). The whole first half of the meal none of us could really eat because we were all laughing so hard watching Rai try to eat his Jello. We eventually did manage to finish our meal though, then we listened to a man play us a few songs on this little flute then we went to Alex´s house.
When we got there it was almost time to go, but we did have time to eat dessert! Now what I am going to tell you just proves that Alex´s mom is the most thoughtful person in the world. Before going to her house I had only met her once and I don´t even remember talking about it, but some how she rememberd that I love the dessert called Turrone. And she had her husband bring back one of the best Turrones in Peru from Lima to eat with me on this particular Sunday. I was so touched! and of course the Turrone was DELICIOUS!!!!!!
After that,I had to say goodbye to all of them. It was so cute because Paul almost cried! They told me that I was welcome to come back any time that I wanted and I know that I definatly will!
On the ride home our first cellectivo broke down in the first two minutes so Alex and I had to walk back to get another one. We did not really talk much, mostly because I spent the trip looking out the window at the mountains.
Overall that day gets a 9 out of 10. It does not get a 10 because it was to short!
I had a BLAST!!
Oh yeah. SO I am trying very very hard to get my pictures up, but there are some problems that I have to figure out how to work around. I Promise that I will find a way to get some posted soon!
PS: Please leave comments, even if they are just to say hi, because I miss you all so much!
