My Best Creation... And 2009 Aibonito Flower Festival

We are so proud of our son Rauli. He graduated with high honors (Magna Cum Laude) BA from the School of Architecture (University of Puerto Rico). He is my best and most beautiful creation!! We, the proud parents, were part of the Faculty procession in the graduation and participated with our son in the ceremony. Here is a picture of the three of us at the end of the graduation.


And then, last week we went to the Aibonito Flower Festival. Every year the town of Aibonito hosts the largest flower show on the Island. It features flower and plant displays, entertainment, music, food and the most important thing - the plant sale!! We saw so many beautiful flowers. Here is a sample of some of the exhibitions. Enjoy!
