Visiting the Rio Grande Valley

It was getting pretty close to a year since Abuelo and Abuela have seen Annika.  With Julia's blessing, Annika and I flew to McAllen to visit the folks for a couple of days.  Vivian and Richard were kind enough to rent a place at South Padre Island so Annika could hopefully enjoy the beach.  Unfortunately Annika did not approve of how sand felt on her feet.  Regardless, a good time was had and after a couple of days with the Cubans, she warmed up to them with smiles.

We will be returning to the RGV in September to further expose Annika to screaming Cubans and to give her another try at the beach.  Hoping for better results.
