On a somber note...My Tio Tonio SORIA, passed away yesterday in Penjamo...We're not sure of all the details but my Tia Carmen is enroute.

Blue Slide at the Park...

{ Aubrey on the slide... }

Went to the park with Aubrey to take a few pictures on the swings. I didn't realize that the swings were for big kids and did not have a saddle, I didn't want her to fall thru so we played on the slide. It was a bit windy so our stay was short, fun anyway!
