This is a line from a song in High School Musical Two - pretty much every time the kids have asked "what time is it?" over the last month, I've burst into song answering in this manner. They were fairly annoyed, but now they do it to each other as well.....
Scuppers is our friends' new dog. The kids are quite in love and begging even more than before for a dog. Daddy is maintaining his negative stance on this issue.
Okay, so our friends the Reicherts found this park outside of Quito. It is amazing. Mostly because it reminds me so much of home - Manitoba. I literally was in tears with joy. Forest with paths through it, pine needles laying all over the ground, fresh air......Heaven.
Dogs were not technically allowed at this park. Beth kept him in her bag a lot of the time when it possible that a worker might see him. We found out right before we left (as she took the dog for a bathroom break and got caught) that they don't allow dogs because there was a rat infestation and they have been treating for the rats - therefore it is a danger to dogs. So far, Scuppers remains healthy!
The park also has a bunch of areas where they have tables, benches and chairs made/carved out of tree stumps. LOVE. And I think I have officially found the best place for taking families' pictures.

He is also hilarious! I've been cracking up reading his comments. The park also has this area with a playground and exercise "machines" for seniors - it seems to be the latest trend here in Ecuador. Several parks are getting these. They may be for seniors, but that doesn't stop the kids from making them into something fun.
