Curt's birthday celebrations

Erick and Laisy took us out today for Curt's birthday.  I was off in la la land and wasn't ready when it was time to order so I just told the waiter I'd have the same thing as Curt.  What was I thinking?  I swear that fish could still see out of that eyeball and watched me the whole time I tried to eat him. It was just waiting for me to choke on one of his bones. 
Rosa and Miguel stopped by the house, brought alfajores (giant cookies with carmel centers) and wished Curt a happy birthday.

A gift from Fernandina and that is Louis with Curt in the picture.   The gift is a beautiful picture frame.

A noche de hogar at the Ventura home.  Everyone sang happy birthday to Curt and then sang feliz cumpleanos.

Curt taking a bite out of the cake before they serve it (it was more like a nibble) but E' Maydana almost bumped Curt's head down into the cake.

Tuesday the Elders in our district surprised Curt with a cake and a little birthday celebration after district meeting. l to r: Curt, E' Maydana, E' Fernandez, E' Anstead, E' Kirkman

Complete with a birthday sign on the whiteboard.

We came back to the house to eat the cake and drink some Inka Cola. Sugar daily intake might be a little high again!

Ran into Cupid on the way to the church. He must have got us because we saw hearts!  Happy Valentines Day from Peru.  

Emergency transfers seem to happen often.  We had to say goodbye to E' Anstead as he heads off to his new area in Lima. 

Multizone Conference this week in Ica.  Curt and I were assigned to talk about time management.  The missionaries participated in an activity to start off the discussion.

Here they are circling the room backwards as a group.

The Hermanas took the challenge to create something for Pres McGinn.  

He accepted the gifts, which gave those teams extra points.

Singing has to be part of the activity (or are they making sounds from the Amazon Jungle here?)

We went to Pisco on Saturday and enjoyed a beautiful walk along the beach that evening after we checked in at our hotel.

We enjoyed the nice cool breeze and watched the birds.

Do they "call mine"  to get the post they want?  Where are the bird that belongs on the posts that are empty?  Why is one bird sitting on the rope instead?    

In Pisco we gave a 3rd hour training in two of the wards.  This is E'Cornejo and E' Anderson with the banner of Christ we take to all the trainings and will take to the chapel open houses. We jumped back on for 5 more hours on the bus.  Luckily these are the nice buses and we enjoy traveling around the southern part of our mission.

Curt took this picture this week so we'd remember this dog.  It likes to bark and try to get out as we walk past.  We know this but it still catches us and makes us jump more than we should (if dogs snicker at silly humans, I'm sure this one would).
