On Culhane’s 4 month birthday he received a MAJOR gift – his Aunt Lise came to visit! Lise lives in Phoenix so she hadn’t gotten to meet Colt yet, and although she will be seeing him again over New Years, she just couldn’t wait that long. Lise is an amazing, talented and BUSY doctor, so she didn’t have long to visit, but she still made the trip to be with us Thursday morning through Sunday evening. We were so honored that she would go through all of the time, energy, etc. to come see us and our sweet boy, so we tried to pack in a combination of São Paulo fun + lots of Culhane snuggle time.
Lise arrived Thursday morning and came directly over to meet her nephew. Next, we met up with Michael for lunch at one of our favorite neighborhood spots. Then for dinner Thursday night, Joe hosted everyone at his apartment for a beautiful meal, complete with a fancy menu! On Friday morning Lise came over for lots of good, quality Culhane time. After lots of morning smiles, we headed to the fancy mall in our neighborhood to meet Michael and Joe for lunch. After lunch we walked around the park & Culhane showed off his sweet new shades. Next we cooled off in the apartment and played! Friday night we headed to our favorite sushi spot, Nagayama, and it was amazing! On Saturday Lise came over for some more quality Culhane time, and then we drove to Bar da Dona Onça in the Centro for a great Brazilian lunch. Saturday night we all took it easy and just headed down the block to dinner at our favorite Italian spot, Sallvattore. On Sunday we took Lise to mass at the beautiful Nossa Senhora cathedral and then spent the rest of the afternoon at the park with friends. It was perfect out! Lise, thank you so much for coming to visit! We had a blast with you and can’t wait to hang out together again next month!
