Another Fun Day with the Kids

Dear Family and Friends,

What a joy it was for us to be back in Cuenca today.  We were able to have our Sunday morning walk with Rich and Nancy to the Kook for breakfast.  We revised our normal walk plans and all met at San Sebastian park.  Just the right amount of walking distance for our kids.

After breakfast we walked to Calderon park to have pictures made with the horses.

Here is Matt posing in his hat with a horse.

Petra looked like a natural on her horse.

We were going to take the double deck tour bus ride but the upper level of the bus filled up before we could get on board.  We decided to postpone the ride until tomorrow morning.

We came home and watched a movie and took a break.

Around 5:30pm we all got into Puff-Puff and headed up to Turi to see the sunset and watch the lights come on in Cuenca.

As it turned out, we were not the only ones with this idea.

The sunset was not spectacular, but we had a lot of fun.

Here is Cuenca just as the lights were starting to come on.

As it got dark, the city lit up.


Here are the girls in front of the church on top of Turi.

On the way home we stopped at the Mall del Rio for a snack..

Here is Paige enjoying her pastries.

Before we left, the girls got into these big plastic balloons (hamster balls) and had a great time playing.

On the way home Petra told Matt that she thinks their trip is going by way too fast.

Everyone is going to sleep soundly tonight!



  1. Welcome home, Nancy and Chuck. It's great to see how much you're enjoying your time with the grand kids, and how much they enjoy Cuenca.
