What a fun day!

We had a really fun day today. I wasn't expecting such a good day since Stella woke up at 4:30am and didn't want to go back to sleep. Finally around 6:30 Stella fell asleep and Isaac woke up and I had to convince him it was to early so he went back down. We all woke up at 8ish to start the day. I was still tired but there was no way I was going to convince everyone it was still the middle of the night. After getting ready we met up with a friend and went for a little adventure.

We planned on taking the Teleferico to the zoo but we changed plans midway through when we found out the zoo was a 30 minute walk. Anyways, the teleferico or cable cars were a huge hit with the kids. They loved going up higher than the trees and seeing the sights. They especially loved passing other cars and waving to the passengers. After going one way we took a break and found a park to play in. After a few hours we decided to take the teleferico back and check out the rose gardens. They smelt great. The kids loved smelling all the flowers and picking up the fallen petals. After Isaac broke off a rose we decided we better leave before anyone noticed.

On the way out of the park we saw a Häagen-Dazs across the street and decided to get some yummy ice cream to top our day off. I love how excited the kids get when we go out for ice cream. They know its a real treat!
So even though we miss Dad he can always count on us having a good time trying to make the time go by faster before we can see him again. (He's traveling for work again. First Barcelona and then London.) Hopefully he's having as much fun as we are. Isaac thinks he went to Barcelona to go to he beach and maybe catch another boat. If only he knew.

(Sorry our camera is still broken so no pictures of us. Hopefully we can get a new one soon)
