We started our New Year’s Eve at the movie theater as a family. We saw The Adventures of TinTin. Cute movie. It was like a younger animated Indiana Jones. When we walked out of the theater, it was a ghost town. Everything was shut down except for Chinese and Japanese restaurants. We drove around for a while and then decided to go back to East for some more teppanyaki enjoyment. Oh boy do we love tepanyaki. After dinner we headed over to Beba’s house for some partying with our PR family. Cash and Guy lasted until 11:15pm and they were both starting to melt down. Guy finally started to fall asleep, but Cash was going crazy.
We decided to head home and bring in the New Year at our house. Guy fell asleep right away and Cash caught a second wind as soon as we got home. We busted out the sparklers and sparkling cider and had ourselves a little New Year’s Eve celebration. Cash was not interested in holding the sparklers because as he kept saying, “hottee, hottee, owee, owee!” So he just sat on my lap as I forced him to enjoy the moment. At least Casey and I had fun with the sparklers.
Everyone goes crazy here with fireworks and gun shooting for any celebration, so the New Year's countdown did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to see three different firework shows from our balcony. So we sat back, enjoyed the view, and rang in the New Year in Puerto Rico.
Happy New Year! I’m excited to see what new adventures and challenges 2012 brings us.
