    Great pictures. I hear ya about the little dog. I’ve yet to get a good picture of my min pin, the Belgium Malinois, well we can get great ones of him all the time because he obeys commands great, but the little one has a mind of his own.

    Love the pictures!

    The chicken scared me, I prefer getting mine from the frozen food aisle and I grew up with them on my Papi’s finca! The pic of the tree in the rearview mirror was beautiful even with the child safety and I wish I had the skills of your abuelito and Titi to grow my own herbs AND whip up a scrumptious dessert!

    Looks like you guys had a blast- love it!
