FOTO FRIDAY - 4/18/14

Dear Family and Friends,

Today's photo still makes me laugh when I remember taking it.

This little tyke picked up his dad's trumpet.

I guess these little girls have had some experience with his playing.

Celebrations in Cuenca, Ecuador

Dear Family and Friends,

It seems like every year Chuck and I are traveling when this celebration rolls around.  The founding of Cuenca was April 12, 1557 and each year this city celebrates with lots of parades, concerts, art exhibits, fireworks and food.

This year, we are fortunate to be in Cuenca for this celebration.  Since we have missed out the last few years, Chuck and I are taking advantage of as many events as we can fit in.

Here are some pictures of a parade downtown on Friday morning.

Lot of dancing in the street.

Colorful costumes..

Cholas and Senoras were parading..

These guys were not in the parade but they were having a great time.

The weather was nice and sunny....just perfect for a wonderful parade.

So glad we are not missing out this year.

And to add to the mix, today is Palm Sunday.  Lots to see and enjoy!

FOTO FRIDAY - 4/11/14

Dear Family and Friends,

Today's photo is of the worlds largest cuckoo clock.

We visited a lovely German family in Meinz, Germany.  They took us to Wiesbaden to see the "World's Largest Cuckoo Clock."  It is located on Kaiser Friedrich Square as the storefront of a souvenir shop.  The shop was built in 1946.

It still works just fine.
