Family Ties

The new challenge at OUAS is up and I am so loving this sketch by Nadya, the journaling challenge is to write at least 4 sentences on why your pictures are memorable.
Last week it was Father's day here in Puerto Rico and  every so often my dad's birthday and father's day happen at once.  There is a 30 year gap in between us 3
1936, 1966,  1996
That would be dad, me and my son!
Age Reveal!!!!!!!!

I did a wee bit more than 4 sentences and was missing the butterflies (sniff) from the sketch, but alas this is a manly page, I don't think dad would approve of the butterflies here. So, here is my version of the sketch, I had soooooo much fun cutting the dominoes and placing them like the game, for reals!!!
Quite the character he is so this page just suits him perfectly!

And onto the weekend happenings,
Miss M getting ready for her cat walk
She's got quite a demeanor, check her posture and attitude in such a small package!
here she is at the final shooting with the other girls
 And Saturday we had Paella, the real thing , it was made by a Spaniard chef right before our eyes! This was just so much fun and a great learning experience in flavors.
 Check this out, loooove this photo of the salt pouring in, Jordi this was unforgettable...
Savour this...they should give us "smellablogging" so you could share the experience
So I hope you had a great weekend too! Here is to a wonderful week with wonderful news,
Salud!
