Wonderful Weekend

Good weekends have the ability to stretch their feel-good vibes into Monday, wonderful weekends make it until Tuesday. So here is Tuesday!
On Saturday I turned 21. After Sofia's birthday, I don't really find any reason to make a fuss about my own birthday. I think most moms are like that, except my own mother of course.
It was a good birthday, there was cake, ice cream and we finally watched Toy Story 3. It was all good.
By Sunday I had already eaten my own weight in cake, its my weekend of indulgence! We had to give my mom a ride to the port in Old San Juan so she could get on the cruise (lucky!). We spent the rest of the afternoon falling in love with San Juan again. I really love that city! I took so many pictures, I probably looked like a tourist! Here are some of my favorites.
An alley
En el parque de las palomas
Sofia & me at the pigeon park
A "garita"
Ventana en Viejo San Juan
The window of a house that sells limbers,water and sodas
Vista desde el Morro

There is so much beauty I had forgotten, I feel like im barely scraping the surface, there is so much more to see!
