A Visit with Friends

Standard

Hey everyone! 😀

Yesterday we went to visit some friends we haven’t seen since earlier this year. 🙂 In fact, here’s a blog post I wrote about last time we visited them! We had a very good time with them. 🙂

We brought and roasted hot dogs for lunch, which was fun!

We got to ride horses! It was my first time really riding a horse. It was a blast!! (Yes, I woke up in the morning extremely sore, but… WORTH IT!) 😁 😂

We all enjoyed our time very much! 😀 And we got very sunburned! 😜 😂 (Again, worth it!) I’m very glad that we were able to go. 🙂

Trip to Couihila Part 1: Time with Relatives

Standard

For those of you who are wondering, Coauhuila is a state here in Mexico. That’s also the state where I was born!

I am planning to break this trip up into a few parts (I’m not sure how many yet!), and write about it over the next few days. (That includes pictures, of course!)

So, we left a few weeks ago, on Monday, at about 4:00 am. We drove all day (almost), and arrived at my grandparents house at about 4:00 pm. We had a good time visiting, and catching up.

This is a funny picture! He looks like he’s hitting her, but he’s not. I’m not sure what he was really doing…

I found the title to this book really funny!

Here is a quote from my 9 year old aunt Abigail.

“Rosy, you know, you’re lucky! Not everyone gets to hold their aunt on their lap!”

On the next part, I will post pictures of Family Camp!

Our Visit to Our Grandparents House

Standard

About a week ago we packed up and climbed into the van at five in the morning to go visit our Grandparents, Uncles, and Aunts, who also live in Mexico! After about day of driving, we finally Arrived! Happily we all climbed out of the van to go meet them! Here are some of the thing that happened during our stay there.
