Space Center

Last Sunday Santi and I had a very busy and fun day.  My brother Travis has some friends from Japan visiting and we went to Bubba's house and then the the Johnson Space Center and Kemah with them.  I was excited to meet this "grandma" that took Travis in while he was living in Japan and her granddaughter that loved to play with Travis over there.  I am very sorry but I do not know how to spell their names and I don't want to mess up online - She called herself our Japanese Grandma several times so that is what I will refer to her as : )  She was so kind and generous! When we arrived at Bubba's, they immediately presented us with gifts because in Japan it is a custom to bring gifts to people you are visiting.  I was blown away by the gifts we recieved - I wasn't expecting anything at all!  Santiago got the CUTEST Japanese outfit that we changed him into and he wore the rest of the day.  We also got a beautiful Japanese banner to hang in the house - this was for Hector I think and I was presented with gorgeous pearl earrings and a pearl necklace! WOW!

After a few hours at the Space Center we left to go eat lunch at Kemah Boardwalk.  We are at the Flying Dutchman and then walked around a bit.  The kids played on a little playground by the water and then Yui drove some motorized boats and Santi watched.  It was really really hot so we didn't stay long.  We had a really great day and Santi slept the entire drive home! He was exhausted!
