The first night in Canada we got just over 5 hours of sleep. Who needs sleep when you can run off of excitement? Ricardo spent most of the morning on the deck outside looking at the mountains and trees. He was amazed by all the beauty that surrounded him and was content just sitting there letting everything sink in. He could not stop talking about the “Welcome Party” we had the night before and how special he felt. What I failed to mention to him was that we were having another one that very evening (as if the night before wasn’t enough. haha)
My sister and Clayton, bless their hearts… They set up the back yard for a nice BBQ dinner, Brazilian style.
If you haven’t experienced a Brazilian BBQ, they are simply the best! It’s basically a bunch of different kinds of meats that are grilled and then served as they are ready. There was so much food! Sausages, Steaks, Veggie Kabobs, Sweet Potato/Yam Kabobs, Chicken, Salmon etc They really went all out… yet again.

They even had lawn games, wrestling wars, and badminton in the backyard. This is Jennifer trying to take Tyson down.
