Mexican Independence Day on September 16th

Flashback, folks. I just found a pre-written blog post that never got published!

We had a friend come over to babysit, and we went out to a popular restaurant in downtown Ajijic. You never know what you’re going to get when you order a meal at a restaurant in Mexico.  I saw an...

Yukatan, Mexico Trip Day 1

Yukatan, Mexico Trip Day 1

We started our big month-long Yukatan trip on December 10th, a few days later than originally planned.

Easter

Easter

For several months, Ella’s school has been collecting mandatory Easter Eggs from each family. We were required to bring 1 cereal box, wrapped candies, and at least 30 empty eggs per child.
