Me Amo Mexico

A few days from now, I'm going to lather on some sunscreen, grab a novel and an armful of snacks and park myself right here...


That's right folks.
On Saturday Erik and I get to leave the kids with Granny & Grandpa and fly to Cancun :)

It turned out to be a partially paid-for trip, in fact, since Erik won free accommodations back in April. I let him go on a Men's Frisbee Golf weekend on Pender Island. Erik wanted to go simply for the love of the game and he didn't realize until they were about to play the final round that the grand prize was actually a week in a time-share in Cancun. He silently prayed for the Lord to give him favour in his frisbee throws (grin) and he won!

The great part is that this comes just in time to celebrate our 10-year anniversary (which is actually on July 15th). We weren't expecting to do anything "special" this year since we knew we'd be buying a house, but God provided us with a great opportunity that we just couldn't pass up.

So... Mexico, aqui vamos!

So cool! I'm sure you'll have a WONDERFUL time! Can't wait to see photos of you in a hot bathing suit, (maybe pass up on the snacks?! :)), holding a margarita and a trashy novel, sitting on that beach chair! :) Happy 10th Anniversary! :)

Whoa! That's awesome! You definitely don't have to pray for warm weather b/c I'm sure the weather there is great! I'm convinced this time of year is the best time to go instead of the winter, b/c then you're guaranteed good weather and you get to miss out on our crummy-should-be-summer-but-feels-more-like-fall weather! Have fun and don't burn!
