Hello people – I got back last week after a wonderful two weeks in Brazil so today’s Three Things Thursday is going to be Three Things Brazil 🙂
Thing One: Kid Friendly Brazil
Brazilians like kids, like really like them. You pretty much get priority access in every line up if you have kids and – this was very exciting for foodie mama – when you go out to a nice restaurant with your kids no one gives you the stink eye. In fact at one of the nicest places we went to they brought out a very cool distressed leather high chair, pages for coloring, crayons, and a balloon. For real.
Canadians take notice!
Thing Two: Christ the Redeemer
I feel lame and touristy saying this, but it really is something to be standing in front of one of the modern wonders of the world. While it was not as big as I perhaps thought it is still marvelous and incredibly powerful.
Thing Three: Water Babies
I am not going to lie – travelling with a one year old is absolutely not for the faint hearted. Especially when yours wakes up at 6AM every single day. Seeing her sister happily splash around in the pool all day went a long way towards mitigating my ire.
But seeing my Zara run up to the beach when we got to Buzios and the sheer delight with which she whooped and hollered and splashed around made everything more than okay. My 1 year old didn’t take to the beach so much, but she found a way to stay ‘busy’.
