Our First Brazilian Holiday

While all of you in the United States were celebrating Labor day,
we were here in Brasil celebrating too!

It was Independence day for the Brazilians
and, once again, a reason to party!

We had another enjoyable time with Barakat family and friends.

When you are invited to their house you can be sure that there will be good food
and warm fellowship. We were not to be disappointed!

One of their daughters, Vanessa, had some of her college friends over so we had a lively dinner conversation about all the things you can only imagine young girls talk about! Brought back memories of my parent's table with me and my 3 sisters or the years of Kellie and her friends around our table. Good memories.

And there was a lot of laughter - even though we spoke different languages!!!

It was a great way to spend our first holiday in Brazil.

And we felt blessed!
