Planes & A Vanilla Ice Cream Please

This weekend we spent it redecorating the house, moving furniture around and today we took a break from our "project" to spend the morning at the airport. The Maputo International Airport although it may not be the busiest in the world, it does have the unique quality that you can get intimately close to the airplanes as they land and prepare for take-off. On the weekends you always see kids and their parents sitting in the cafe that sits on the balcony just watching the show of planes.

Luka LOVES planes and our friends the Santana family invited us along. It was so much fun. Here you can see Luka covering his ears as the plane starts to roar its engine right before take off.

We must have seen about five planes take off and land. Luka was very intrigued.

He also had ice cream for the 2nd time. The first time was an ice cream cone about two weeks ago at our friend Laura's house. But today he sat down and enjoyed a cup of vanilla ice cream all on his own.

The funniest thing was to watch Luka as he waved at everyone getting off of the planes. You can see everyone walk off the planes on the tarmac. I can't think of any other airport where you can do this?

Bella and Joshua also love going to watch the planes. Sounds so strange when I tell people we are going to the airport as part of entertainment for the kids...
