December Weekend / Fin de Semana de Diciembre 2015


This was a weekend that passed by so fast! Lyn is in a two week vacation and our long weekend kind of began on Thursday, December 24th. In Latin American countries this is the day when Christmas is mainly celebrated with a nice dinner and time to open presents. On the 25th is when we actually gather as a family to open all the presents. I like everything I received from my sister, and Little Lyn got lots of new games! We did different things to have a good time so let's begin...

Este fue un fin de semana que se paso tan rápido! Lyn tiene dos semanas de vacaciones y nuestro fin de semana largo empezó jueves, diciembre 24. En los países latinoamericanos este es el dia que se celebra la navidad con una rica cena y hora de abrir los regalos. El 25 es cuando actualmente nos reunimos en familia para abrir todos los regalos. Me gusto todo lo que recibí de mi hermana, y Pequeña Lyn recibió muchos juegos! Hicimos cosas diferentes para pasarla bien así que empezamos...

Thursday for me started with a pleasant surprise. The mail man knocked on my door to deliver roses. ♥

Jueves para mi empezó con una linda sorpresa. El señor del correo toco mi puerta para entregarme unas rosas que me mandaron. ♥

Christmas morning began with healthy açaí bowls. I blended cashew milk with pineapple, frozen banana, flax and chia seeds, and the main ingredient, açaí. Topped with shredded coconut, goji berries, granola, and spirulina.

La mañana de navidad empezó con un tazón de acai saludable. Licue leche de anacardo con piña, banano congelado, semillas de linaza y chia, y el ingrediente principal el açaí. Encima le puse coco rayado, bayas de goji, granola, y espirulina.

All the above photos were taken at Miami Beach. Honestly it didn't feel like Christmas completely since the weather was very warm. I think this the first time it wasn't cold on a Christmas day as far as I can remember. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful day and the beach looked beautiful. We had a such a good time :)

Todas las fotos anteriores fueron tomadas en Miami Beach. Honestamente no se sentía como Navidad completamente por el tiempo que estaba caliente. Creo que esta es la primera vez que no hay frio en un dia de Navidad de lo que me acuerdo. De todos modos fue un día lindo y la playa se miraba muy lindo. La pasamos muy bien.



Saturday / Sábado

Saturday was more of a relaxed day. We baked cookies (I shared the recipe here), we had Zen Tea by Tazo, and bananas. Not the best combination but it was very good. I included in the photo the new iPhone 6s I received as a gift.

On Sunday we headed to the Everglades park. The Everglades serves as a way to preserve nature of this Florida area. It was Lyn's and I first time here and it was amazing! We got to ride a boat that took us around the river and we learned various things. We got to learn how to filter water by using the plants located in the area in case you're thirsty. We also learned about worms that can be eaten as a source of protein or seeds from different plants if case you're vegetarian. We got to see huge iguanas, and alligators! At the end we saw a crocodile show before we headed back home and a meal from Whole Foods.

El domingos nos fuimos al parque de los Everglades. Los Everglades es un parque que ayuda a conservar la naturaleza de este área de la Florida. Era la primera vez de Lyn y mio que estábamos aquí y fue increíble! Nos subimos a un bote que nos llevo al rio y aprendimos varias cosas. Aprendimos como filtrar agua con las plantas de los alrededores si en caso les da sed. También aprendimos que se pueden comer gusanos como un fuente de proteína o semillas de las plantas si en caso eres vegetariano. Vimos iguanas inmensas, y cocodrilos! Al final vimos un show de cocodrilos antes de irnos a casa y pasamos a Whole Foods para comer.
