Adios Retiro

Abby insisted that we make one last trip to one of our favorite spots in Madrid – Parque del Retiro.  We were excited that our friends, the Chopras, and their sweet puppy, Salchicha (yes, that’s ‘sausage’ in Spanish) could join us for some pre-international-flight puppy play!

 

 

Happy Birthday Lalit!

We celebrated our wonderful friend Lalit’s big 3-0 in July with  a weekend of festivities – what could be better to kick off your 30’s than an outdoor movie, a big brunch, and an afternoon in el Retiro!  We hope you had an absolutely fantastic birthday Lalit!!!

The Open Air theater was AMAZING with rows and rows of beach style chairs to enjoy the show.  We got their early enough to grab dinner and score some free fleece blankets to keep us cozy during the movie.  Fun!

The guys enjoyed lounging on the Chopra’s gorgeous patio before we all dove into Kyle’s delicious breakfast sandwiches and my tasty apple cinnamon cake.  I think Lalit was pleased with his birthday brunch!

And the day was topped off by a gorgeous afternoon in the park, complete with cake, friends and champagne!  I think Abby particularly appreciated Lalit’s choice of birthday celebration spots.

Wishing you a feliz cumpleanos from the Granderson’s, Lalit!!!
