Ubatuba, Brazil

Since my parents are here visiting, we thought it would be a great time to head to the beach. When Renato and I were here 2 years ago, we went to a beach-front town called Ubatuba, and loved it, so we thought we'd take my parents there. It's about a 4 hour drive, but so worth it. It's a nice little town that is totally family oriented. In the little hotel where we stayed, there were 4 other babies there too. So Camden made some friends.

I love the beach and the water, and Renato is practically part fish, so we were hoping Camden would love it as well. He liked to walk in the water and sand, and liked to play with his beach/sand toys, but didn't really like to touch the sand, which is a problem if you're at the beach.

My parents loved it! My dad became a beach bum while we were there, and being a hard-working, 365 days a year farmer, it was nice to see him relax. His goal was to get a nice tan to show off in North Dakota. :)

We had a great time there......well, most of us did. Poor little Camden got his first ear infection while we were there and had to go to the emergency clinic and was pretty sick. But with his little fun personality, it didn't slow him down too much while we were there.

Oh wow, sounds lovely. Do people walk around naked on the beach in Brazil? They do here. The do have family friendly beaches, but what that just mean the lower extremities are not hanging out. Poor Camden, I hope he is better. I am taking Josh to the sandbox everyday, he now is used to sand. He didn't like it at first either.

Hi Michele, I'm so glad to hear you guys are doing well in Brazil. It is good that Camden did not let the ear infection hamper his fun. Poor little guy! They seem to get better in little or no time, thank god. I need to write you soon and promise I will. While you've got Camden out in the sand, we have recently started taking Ashlyn out to play in the snow in the little yard that we have. She loves her purple snowboots and just going outside. I am sure we will make good use of the parks here this summer. Praying blessings for your mission and your family. Lynette
