We've Got Ourselves a Two Year Old Here

Feliz Aniversário My Darling Salty

Can you beleive we've made it two whole years. Mallory is a phase girl; obsessive, impulsive, over enthused--i've been called it all. But the Salty Cod is proving to be something much more than a phase. What exactly we are not sure of yet. But we know Salty will keep swimming.

I am triste to say that due to the ten hours spent in a car today--there is no birthday cake for Salty. A 5-day vacation to the southern Brasilian beach coast was his present instead. Oh how terrible right!

Salty was born a few months before we moved to Paris--after a year he survived the city of lights and returned to Spokane. Less than a year later--and that cod fish has led us to Brasil. And we can not imagine anywhere else we would rather be. Especially for our birthday.

Two Years Young!
