Fairfax met Jollibee at the local Starbucks where they tried a cup of Coffee Jelly Frappuccino and a cup of Mango Passion Fruit blended drink. (Can't get that at all in Virginia, she exclaims!)

Marissa's Bunny
is off to visit relatives and to give them updates on our little cousin. In the meantime, she is basking in the summer heat and the warm hospitality of everyone she meets.

My girls!

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day.
When it's cold outside, I've got the month of May.
I guess you'd say: "What can make feel this way?"
My girls. Talkin' 'bout My girls!

Boy, those Temptations sure knew what they were singing about!

Papa on Their Minds

The edge on the homesick whines isn't there anymore. I can only imagine that the girls are finally adjusted to the time and to the routine away from home. Then I hear them say, "Send this picture to Papa," as they pose for me. Or "Can we mail this to Papa?" after they finish a work of art.

So this entry's for Papa, a long-distance Valentine's Day greeting: We are thinking of you!

How would you like a pirate-themed Italian restaurant, with a special ship docked behind for your private party? Just perfect, according to your number 1 mate, with a wink and a salute to you.

We are sure you're not lacking in sucralose and salt. This V-day, we thought of celebrating with you--how's a can of Pringles to share across the seas?

The little senorita poses for her amor. She tries not to scream too loudly during her many lab tests. You will be proud of her!

Well, does this one need any comment?
