Yay! Cate Faull is finally here! We bounded so much during my trip to Ohio and discovered that we are so much alike and have so much in common. Luis and I had been looking forward to spending some more time with my baby sister! (who is all grown up now). The first thing that everyone says when seeing Cate is, "Ah es tu hermana? Son iguales!" (She's your sister? You're the same!) Each day has been so special and filled with laughter and fun. I don't want her to ever leave! Below are a few pictures of Cate's arrival and our time touring the Presidential Palace, which was breathtaking and historically fascinating!

Wow! My mom has given us a love for art and history
