Mexican Birthday Party Marathons…

 What do you do when you are invited to two Mexican birthday parties in one day? Well…gee…you can’t just miss them!  But committing to both is committing to a loooong day!

Angangueo, Michoacán: Gateway to the Butterflies

 From Morelia, we took off for Angangueo, a mining town located in the far Eastern part of the state of Michoacán.

Lasik Sugery in Mexico

 Why is it that children love eyeglasses?  We try to keep them out of Ethan’s grasps, but it is not always an easy task. Well, one weekend Ethan grabbed Jared’s glasses and broke them. We did the best gluing job we could (because Jared does not have contacts or any form of backup for seeing), but it was not holding.  After checking out the local Chapala.com forums (a great online resource for finding...
