We managed to get Yoli’s entire family together for a photo. This is the first time we’ve all been in one place in several years. Count ’em — there’s 20 people!
Here are Rebeca, Daniel, and Melany; they are the children of Yoli’s sister Eliza.
Here are Raquel and Abi with Jadzia; they are the children of Yoli’s sister Noemi. It is Bolivian tradition to shave babies’ heads on their first birthday to help them grow more hair. Since the weather was pretty hot, Noemi decided to shave Raquelita’s hair a little early.
Here are Jonatan and Leya with Jadzia; they are the children of Yoli’s sister Lucy.
Here is Jessy holding Jadzia; she is also one of Lucy’s children.
Here is Yoli’s sister Sara setting up a high seat at the restaurant where she works, called Picolo. We ate there twice: once with Boris and Eliza, then with Noemi and Alcides.
Sure, Jadzia would LOVE to try a banana split! Notice how curly her hair is? When we got back to the States, it got straight again. Must have been the humidity.
Here’s Corina and Heidi playing with Jadzia.
Awwww… Jadzia’s sleeping. Notice the bunny in the background? It was sniffing her hair right before we took this photo. One of Jadzia’s favorite books is called “Pat the bunny.”
