Happy Birthday, Ruth!
A very Happy Birthday to you, Ruth!
We sure love you and miss you.
We hope you have a wonderful, fun day -- we're thinking of you and really appreciate your friendship and all you and Art have done (and still do!) for us.
You are truly a ray of sunshine.
We're remembering all the really fun holiday/birthday picnics and hope you have a special day with friends and family. We're with you in spirit!
Today is also a public holiday here in Cuenca. The Battle of Pichincha is usually celebrated on May 24. The 1822 Battle of Pichincha was an important one, setting the stage for independence from Spain.
To allow for a 3 day weekend, public officials declared today, Friday May 27, as the holiday.
Many families headed out of town for a little r and r.
We hope all have a fabulous, fun-filled and safe weekend, wherever you are!
