Viva Mexico!

Once upon a time, in the middle of a deathly cold winter in northern Minnesota, a family decided that enough was enough...they were leaving this crazy weather once and for all (or at least for a week). So they set off to none other than...


...MEXICO!!
Here is a pictoral account of their adventure....


Karen and I at the airport (sharing my Zen) waiting to fly away to warmer weather where we can trade our coats and scarves for flipflops and swimsuits!

This is where we stayed...a condo called Arena Blanca in Playa del Carmen. It was absolutely beautiful!
* Here is part of the gang (Mom, Dad, Theresa, Dennis, and Austin Caron, Karen Schmidt, and Ben Caron)! The food was fabulous! Lots of fresh fruit and spicy dishes...yum!

Here we are getting ready to head out to a restaurant for the evening.

*

My absolutely wonderful parents!

*

Elianna...a bathing beauty!

*

What a handsome little sweetheart! Just look at those mischievious eyes! The kiddos did so well on the trip, airplane rides and all. They are little troopers!

*

Mindy, enjoying the beach!

It was a huge blessing to have Karen along as well. She is such a wonderful friend and I love her dearly!

So that was our adventure in Mexico. We are now back home and the temperature was forecast at -50 below zero this morning with wind chill! Dispite the frigid and unhospitable weather conditions, there is just no place like home and it is good to be back! We are thankful to the Lord for providing such a grat time for our family to be together. The whole trip was a big blessing!
