A week after my parents left and the day after Finn turned 1 month old, Sharon & Ollie visited us in Brazil to meet Finn, spend time with Colt and help Michael and me. They were only able to stay for about 10 days but true to form, we packed a lot in! It was a great mix of fun times with friends, down-time with family and then a great getaway to one of our favorite places – the Fasano hotel at the Fazenda Boa Vista.
During the week Sharon & Ollie developed a morning “tradition” with Colt. They would come over by 7:30am to be here when he woke up (so that Michael and I could get a little more sleep or Michael could go work out). They would do his whole milk, play, breakfast routine and then they would walk down the street with him to our grocery store. The grocery store is pretty nice and it has a great little cafe where they would sit and have coffee while Colt colored and snacked on pão de queijo. So sweet AND helpful to Mom and Dad! Then we would try to do something fun for lunches and dinners.
After a fun week in SP we headed outside the city to the Fazenda Boa Vista for some R&R.
As I mentioned in my last post, I was actually battling a very painful arm infection through the Harpers’ entire visit but unfortunately it was the worst during our last weekend together at the Fazenda. On Saturday morning, Michael, Finn & I had to drive to the hospital for me to have a little “operation” on my arm and we were gone most of the day.
Thankfully, despite all I was going through, Colt was having the time of his life with Nana and Papa at the Fazenda!
We hated to say goodbye but it was a little easier knowing we’d be reunited soon over Thanksgiving!
We love you Nana & Papa! Thank you for a great visit and for all the ways you helped us out and loved on our boys! XO
