A wonderful birthday

On Friday Sangeetha (our maid) bought Harrison a cake to kick start the birthday weekend! 

Our pirate is FOUR! 


Faiyaz (our driver) baked a yummy pineapple cake for Harrison's birthday, of course the pirate ship was outsourced from a very yummy bakery! 
Faiyaz and his family (his wife, Alia is in pink and their oldest son in the middle, the 14 yr old started home). This is his extended family. I was so excited to have his family come join us.

The many faces of Harrison


Harrison thought it was very cool to sit on his first motorbike...no I did not let him go for a ride on it.  
I bought Harrison a new pair of shoes and when I had him try them on and commented that they were like Jude's running shoes he got so excited and said "I have always wanted running shoes!" He proceeded to run and dance around the apartment. 
Snack break in the shade after going to the museum in Goa. 
Bear is all buckled in for our plane ride back to Hyderabad 
After playing "Snakes and Ladders" at Jude's house and while the adults were playing "Ticket to Ride" Harrison fell fast asleep... 

Goa and its wonderful food and drinks

The sucker as big as Harrison's head 
Adding a little bit of sugar to Momma's Masala Chi 
Date night dinner... 
was amazing!!!!

A boy and his love for cupcake icing...just the icing 

Momma's iced coffee was a huge hit for Harrison 

Sprider-Man really needed a drink of Harrison's Sprite 

Tea time! 

Mango margarita along with fish and chips 


After a long day of swimming Harrison enjoyed some (not all) of the pint of vanilla ice cream...that was the only size available...he had quite the sweets indulgence on vacation. 

Old Goa

Ruins of St. Augustine


Church of St. Fancis of Assisi


A trip isn't complete without a "family" picture 

Bill was really excited when Harrison said "yay a museum!!!" 
Though it was quite hot and humid we had a great time in Old Goa.

Beach and pool time

I love this picture as it captures the fun and excitement of the beach 

We have quite the collection of seashells...

This was truly an amazing vacation for our family. We loved spending time together collecting seashells, swimming at the pool and eating a lot of great food!
