Like Rami, Mahalia is a very happy child with an upbeat personality. Like her half-brother she also seems to have a good sense of where the camera is! Seeing them hang out together it's not hard to imagine they're related.
Ilana was also there, Rami and Mahalia's half-sister from Albany. The three of them got along famously.
Later moms and kids got together for a group portrait. From left to right that's Ilana's mom Karen, Ilana, Rebecca, Rami, Calais and Mahalia.
This was not a one time get together. We're going to meet up in Santa Cruz later this summer for some Boardwalk action and maybe just maybe, a picture of the kids in matching Slugwear. In a summer of changing family status, a new half-sister is an incredible bonus!
