Winter in Brazil

Well, it's winter here, and although we've not had snow, we've had our share of cold, rainy days where we are lucky if our house warms up to 65. 
But as August rolled in, we were blessed with some warm, spring-like days.  Some friends of ours came down yesterday from Curitiba and we got to enjoy a trip to the dunes & the beach.   

 Instead of SNOW angels, we made SAND angels!  

 We found a huge sand hill to run down----

 They made it down but we wondered if they would ever be able to make it back UP!

 When they finally made it back up, we jokingly said, can you do it again, and they did!  

 It doesn't seem to matter how often we've seen the view, it is always breathtaking!

 Well, after some fun at the dunes, we made it down to the beach.  

 It was John's first time to the ocean. 

It was so neat to see all the kids working together to build their sand castles 
and lakes for their little sea creatures to live it.  

So, if you're interested in enjoying a little of our winter in Brazil, come on down!
We'll leave the light on for ya!

Looks like so much fun! I'd love to come and visit. Your 65 degrees sounds good during these 100 degree days. That sand dune reminds me of my summers at Lake Ann. So beautiful!

Love you and praying for you! =)
