Roger every once and awhile surprises me and does something spontaneously family orientated for his family. This last event was deciding to take his family to Chancos the local hot springs 1.5 hours away. I was impressed as this meant he need to ask for a day off work from the restaurant, pay for combi fares to and from the hot springs, food, and the entrance fees. This would be the equivalent of a middle class family in the states taking a week long trip to Disneyland or Disney World (obviously we're working on a different scale here). I did my duty and brought my camera, so here's the pics:

The family was pretty impressed with this sun dial, once the concept was explained to them. 

L to R: Dina, Karen (neighbor girl), Yeferson, Yordan, and Roger. 

Cate made it too. 

Roger and Dina at the entrance. They came here once before 10 years ago at the start relationship. 

Yeferson, Dina and Keren at the pool. 

Roger observing, and Yordan in the far distance too scared to swim. 

Yeferson in not the cleanest water ever. 

Cate in the towel trying to get Yordan to try out the pool. 

Karen and I in the deep end. 

Yordan in protest mode. 

Me doing the big brother thing, and forcing Yeferson to the deep end.

He survived and eventually enjoyed it. 

Cate was eventually successful in getting Yordan into the pool. I think , he out of everyone enjoyed it the most. 


Even Dina got in. She was pretty scared at first, but eventually settled in. 

Group shot. L to R: Dina, Cate, Yordi, and Karen. 

Yordi and Cate playing with Karen looking on. 

He's not actually alone. Cate is just submerged while holding him. 

Yeferson preferred the shallow end. 

After a couple of hours, the boys were frozen. 

Time to dry off and eat lunch. 

A fun time was had by all, just look at Yordi's smile.
