It’s been a long time since we’ve posted. Not a lot has happened. We are patiently waiting for out next group of visitors to arrive- Lindsay’s parents come March 25th, Thursday and stay for over 10 days! It should be a great visit.
Even though we weren’t in America we tried to catch the Super Bowl.
Outback for dinner!
Upstairs- same mall- TGI Friday’s for dessert! Marvin sporting a new shirt from Zara!
Super Bowl was a bust! We couldn’t watch the commercials cause we are in Spanish speaking land an even though they show American television the commercials are all Spanish local ones. We’ve looked a few up on YouTube here and there.
Next up was Valentine’s weekend! I say weekend cause we rented a car and celebrated all weekend long! It was fun! Dominicans hold Valentine’s day as a BIG holiday here. Everywhere you look hearts, red and white, lovey quotes, etc. KFC, coffee shops, supermarkets, Levi’s jeans stores, all adorn the love hearts.

Happy Chinese New Year! 2/14/10
We welcomed in the Year of the Tiger while we were shopping at Jumbo. They had a little parade and such. It was quite a new experience. We have several Asian students that attend school so there was a lot of hype around for the event as well.
