Mas Familia

marta and family  002My family, unlike Hector’s, is spread out throughout the continental U.S. and Puerto Rico.  So I don’t get to see many of them at one time.  But in January I had a surprise when I found out that my half sister would be traveling to Fort Lauderdale from Puerto Rico to visit her daughter and her family.  They drove down to Miami and we all had a nice visit on New Year’s Day.marta and family  001
