Mexico Part 6: Conclusion

September 20th, 2011, 1 Comment

The sixth in a series; see also parts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. It’s been about two weeks now since we got back home. Every few days, our boys still talk about Mexico. Jacob talks about what he will want to do “when we go back” and how he’d like to see Jonathan over […]

Mexico Part 5: Food, Restaurants, and Dueling Karaoke Guys

September 15th, 2011, 4 Comments

The fifth in a series; see also parts 1, 2, 3, and 4. One piece of advice we got in Mexico went like this: the nicer a place looks, the worse the food and prices will be. Roadside taco stands will be great, and nice-looking restaurants not so much. That seemed to be accurate. We […]

My family and I (including our boys) are just back from a great visit to Mexico. It was my first time there, and also the first time our boys have been outside the USA. I’ll be writing about all the fun stuff in the posts to come, so you’ll have to bear with me on […]
