Happy Father’s Day!!!

My mom arrived last Thursday to spend a month in NYC with us, but my dad is working in Caracas, and couldn’t manage to be over for the weekend. So it was phone calls, e-cards, mailed cards and wait-to-see-you-soon gifts. We love you dad, you’re the best! Happy father’s day!!!

In spite of the bad weather we had during the weekend, which kept on throwing us out of Street Fairs and obligatory shopping sprees, we managed to reunite at La Nacional for some father’s Day lunch, which consisted of yummy tapas and sangria, and the viewing of the Portugal-Switzerland (0-2) game on TV. We also caught a little bit of the Czech Rep-Turkey (2-3) game, which was bizarre… a red card to the goalkeeper?! And a yellow card to a guy on the bench!? I had never seen that in all my years of futbol watching, I mean, really, WTH?

Anyhow, here’s the dad

and the daughter

and the wife and mother-in-law

the sister-in-law with the dad

and the food!

The son, as you can see, was there too, but wasn’t up to close-ups. Sometimes you’re just not in the mood, right?

I hope you had a great father’s day and for those of you dads: Congratulations! : )
