Rox's Birthday brings a pleasant surprise!

We are having a lot of fun in our temporary new "home", which is our new suite...

We liked the deck on the new suite so much, and since our personal deck on our home was disintegrating, we called together our faithful crew, and they removed the deck and two stairways in short order.

This leads us to how we were going to spend a quiet Sunday, with us having a gourmet breakfast, and having our favorite for dinner, Chateaubriand, baked potatoes, sour cream, a whole box of sauteed mushrooms,  and lots of gooey soft margarine! 

We were enjoying a quiet afternoon of watching the beautiful waves breaking out front, soft breezes, butterflies migrating past the windows, and pelicans floating along, when Coquita began to get really excited...running around and finally running to the gate at the top of the stairs!!!

Coming up the stairs, were Agripina, her daughter Sonia, Isidro's brother, and Santos (nephew and his brother), carrying a huge rum soaked cake made especially for Roxanne.

Take a look...

Now, if it wasn't enough that they were doing this on Sunday, their day off, they also had a little boom box with them, and  sang "Happy Birthday" to Roxanne in English!

This rum cake is to die for...it melts in your mouth with a jolt!

 Feliz Compleanos is Happy Birthday is Espanol...and down here Roxanne is Roxana, sort of like I am Roberto.

Here is the last photo, before we dug in...

We didn't think that a really nice day could get any better, but it surely did!
