After such a busy day yesterday, we "slept in" and took our time getting out of bed this morning. When Nora got up, I brought her into bed with us and nursed her. Then, she looked so cute lying there with Michael that I had to snap a few pics:
Once we were all up, we walked over to have breakfast at the beach again. Michael snapped these pics of Nora:
From breakfast, we took our time walking back to our condo, snapping a few pics along the way.
Nora was ready for a nap, so we put her down, then Michael offered to stay at the condo with her while us girls went out to do a little shopping on 5th Avenue. I mostly just wandered around while my mom and grandma looked for things, but I took some photos as we browsed. Everything was so colorful.
Me: "Cuanto cuesta?"
Him: "380 pesos."
Me: "Oh, lo siento. Nevermind."
Him: "How much do you want to pay?"
Me: "Well, I've seen them in shops down the street for 180 pesos."
Him: "OK. How about 200?"
Me: "No thanks. I'll go back to the other store. They're the same dresses."
Him: "Not as good quality."
Me: "Well, they look the same to me."
Him: "Tomato, tomah-to." (No shit. He said that. My mom and I laughed.)
Done deal. I was proud of myself, as I'm not one to be too much of a negotiator. :)
We ended up being out shopping longer than I originally anticipated, so I was worried that Michael was probably bored silly back at the condo. My mom was ready to be done shopping, too, so we headed back while my grandma stayed out to walk around a little longer.
To our surprise, as we walked into the condo, Michael met us at the door. I apologized for being gone so long and he said, "She just got up 15 minutes ago!" Nora had taken an AMAZING nap.
We were all ready to get out and swim, so we got into our suits to go out to the pool. Michael and Nora were ready before I was, so they went out before me. I ended up taking a few pics of them from our balcony, which turned out cute.
While they were out, they ran into Joe and Ava, two of Kelly and Murray's friends that we got to know a little bit. They decided to sit down to have a drink with them, and got this cute pic:
