LIFE, MAN.

whenever i'm texting one of my friends about life & things get busy / complicated / crazy / etc. we always seem to end our thoughts with "LIFE, MAN." it kind of just engulfs everything into a small description, don't you think? maybe i'm crazy, but i feel like this statement of two words just explains things. life just happens. oh, & all caps is a must on this statement.

anyways, life has been gooooooing so quickly! it always does. the last few weeks from our trips during santa semana, to coming home & having austin's parents arrive, we have been non-stop around here. LIFE MAN! i have been getting tired of posting only about our trip, haha, so here's a recap of life after travel & having austin's parents in town!

austin's parents were supposed to get here thursday morning, but their flight was delayed so they didn't arrive until the afternoon, but it worked out for us because austin was home for school when they got here! we were really excited about having them come visit & showing them around madrid. the first night they were tired & no one wanted to wait till 8:30 for dinner (almost nowhere opens before 8:30 in madrid for dinner, it's a real buzzkill when you're starving & don't want to cook/don't have food to make), so we took them to our favorite: tierra burrito. the next day while austin was at school i was their tour guide around the city! i did my best to show them all the sites & give them background information, but i really don't know a lot of madrid's history (i'm working on it), but we had a good time. i took them to breakfast at this cafe i really like, bocados, then down to puerta del sol & plaza mayor, the palace, then back to our apartment for cedars nap. during his nap we had good old fashioned spanish bocadillos, which is litereally just spanish bread with jamón ibérico (a special spanish ham). austin met up with us at home & once cedar woke up went to retiro to where our friday playgroup was meeting. after playgroup & seeing the park grounds we went to dinner at a really, really good Brazilian restaurant.

we had a jam packed, busy day, but it was really fun. saturday we took a day trip to toldeo. toldeo is an awesome little town that's only 30 minutes away on the train. i had been yeaaaaars ago when my friend shannon & i went on our european adventure, but didn't really remember much & i truly don't know why austin & i haven't gone before, but it was beautiful! definitely deserves its own post :)
