friends, surf, sea lions

we are still at the beach, enjoying the mostly sunny days. our friends, who just climbed aconcagua(i tried to include a picture), sonny and bryce, are here to visit us and relax a little. it has been fun having the company. they will be leaving in a few days, though.
the boys rented surf boards yesterday, but the waves were so bad they we only in the water for about 1 hour. nobody surfed. it was really funny to watch though!
the other day we went to a port in mar del plata and saw where all of the sea lions rest. it smelled horrible. gagging horrible, but it was so fun to see them all lying around. they are so strange and interesting. and they make really funny noises. we got about 2 feet from them, guarded by a fence, because they are a bit dangerous.
we miss you all dearly.


you are the proud parents:

of a f250, turbo diesel, veggie oil truck.

regan has been following this truck for about 2 weeks now and has loved it since the first day he saw it on craigslist.
the truck went for auction on ebay and regan won for $2600 less than the asking price on craigslist. i will try to put pictures up here.
hopefully, we will be seeing you all soon, after we return, FOR FREE. check out vegetable oil online if you don´t know why we´ll be driving for free.

love you


address number 2

the new pictures are up on shutterfly. there aren´t many, it goes so slow and the best ones aren´t up, but we make due.

also, we found out we have to be out of the apartment by the 1st of march, so no letters after the 15th of february, just to be safe.

after that we are unsure where we will be...maybe visiting some friends in buenos aires.

we are busy nursing our sunburns, but soon we´ll be back in the waves, having fun in the sun.

santa clara

we made it to the beach! we got to mar del plata and julio picked us up from the bus station. we went back to his house and realized that him finding us a house for 500 pesos was wishful thinking. mar del plata is HUGE and expensive. we stayed for two days and looked for a house, but nothing came up. while we were there though, we hung out with julio and andrea and their great kids lele and baba(nicknames). they practiced their english and i my spanish. they were so great. made us dinner, let us do laundry and camp in their yard. we used their shower and internet.
we decided to move on though, about 15 km north to santa clara. it is much smaller and a bit cheaper. we spent our first day looking for places to live. and finally, by chance, we found an apartment 3 blocks from the beach. it is small, but nice and from the back balcony we can see the ocean!!
the next day we spent on the beach. now we are both red. regan more than i. plus, he is a little sick:( so we are taking a break from the fun in the sun and seeing a movie today.
miss you love you
oh, and we have an address, but i forgot to bring it. keep your eyes out and write your letters.
