Argentina 2007

Our big family Christmas present this year was travel down to Argentina to spend time with my mom. It was an unforgettable trip! Ethan talks about it continually and asks us when we are going to move to Argentina!

Here we are in Plaza de Mayo.

We enjoyed a tour of the Sarmiento, an old Argentine ship.

Ethan in La Boca--the birthplace of Tango!

Abuela sings a Tango song in La Boca.

We all enjoyed the food so much! This was Dana's favorite place by far--La Cazona del Toboso in La Cumbre. The beef skewers were the best!

We spent Christmas day swimming in a river near Abuela's home in La Falda. You can see Tye hiding in the background--she loved being in the water and sunbathing!

Ethan loved jumping from this rock into the river.

Here is Ethan saddling up for a horseback riding trip we took.

We went fishing one day, but had no luck. Oh well!

And, of course, we were able to spend time with family! Like I said, it was an unforgettable trip--thank you to everyone in Argentina!

Christmas 2007

A very merry Christmas was had by all-especially Ethan! We opened some of our gifts at home, but our big gift was a family trip to Argentina!

Giddy up, cowboy! We're at a cub scout activity--a train ride in French Lick, IN.

The first day of fourth grade!

ANOTHER Disney trip?!

Yup, another summer, another Disney trip for the Andersons and the Daniels! Uncle Jared came along as well. We had a great time, as usual. The kids are at the Magic Kingdom listening to a Barbershop quartet and Jared, Ethan and I are standing in front of the Mexico ride at Epcot.


Here we are on our two favorite rides of EPCOT. Jared, Ethan and I on Soarin' and me on Test Track!

Big Thunder Mountain

Here we all are on our favorite ride--Big Thunder!

A Crystal Palace Breakfast

The boys in blue and the girls in pink!

We made friends with several Disney employees!

The Lego Store!

Here's Ethan racing cars and posing in front of a huge lego dragon at the Lego store in Downtown Disney--always one of our favorite stops!


We're stearing the ship from one of my favorite scenes in the Pirates of the Carribean rides-Ahoy!

The 4th of July!

We visited Nana & Papa's over the 4th of July weekend and our cousins Ronan & Etienne were there also. We all had fun playing together. We went to a 4th of July festival and ate lunch with Uncle Sam!


At Nana & Papa's the boys played in the lake a lot and had A LOT of fun playing in the sand and swimming!

Boating on Lake Monroe

Abuela & Jared came up for a visit and we all went out to Lake Monroe for the day to play on the Lake. We had a great time swimming and tubing!

Ethan turns 9!

Ethan had a grand birthday party at a local lazer-tag establishment. Everyone had lots of fun!

Here Ethan and Dad play some skee-ball before the lazer-tag games start.

Everyone is getting suited up and ready for play!

Ethan & a friend try to tag each other with their lazers!

The teams are done with their game (and Ethan is hiding behind a leaf).

WHAT? Aunt Michelle and Uncle Andre sent Ethan a Wii game. He doesn't even own a Wii--Bummer.

Another Wii game?! Something sneaky is definitely up!

Wii-hoo! Ethan figures out he just got his dream gift!
