Trip to Couihila Part 1: Time with Relatives


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.

Mom with my Grandma, and Dad with my Grandpa and Uncle.

Walking with Uncle Benjamin to watch him feed his horse.


Playing on the big, concrete slide that my grandpa made. The lady in the black and white striped shirt is my aunt Ruth.


Mom wasn’t too thrilled about this…



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…

Lizzie and Abigail washing dishes. Then Lizzie took a silly selfie with my camera.


Devotions and singing.


Lots of games.


Dad playing the Banjitar. That’s a cross between a banjo and a guitar.

Uncle Timothy and Susy.


The room that we all slept in.


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!

A Condensed Version of the Month of March


And I thought I was late last month! Well, lately has been pretty busy. (Isn’t it always?!) Well, March was busy. Two birthdays, a week long trip, puppies, and a neat concert. So, I’ll take them each one by one.


Mom and Ruthie both had birthdays this month. I didn’t get pictures of Mom’s birthday, but I did of Ruthie’s. Both of their birthday’s were actually at my grandparents house, which I will talk about later in this post, but we celebrated Ruthie’s when we got home. She turned six. And, just for fun, here is a link to the blog post I did a few years ago for her 4th Birthday!

A Week Long Trip

We took a trip to our Grandparent’s house last week. We spent a few days with just us and then, during which we… Celebrated Christmas. I’m not joking! We literally couldn’t find a good time to get together between then and Christmas! After a few days, we went to family camp, which my grandparents do. They are missionaries in Mexico too, in another state. Here are a few pictures from the trip. I am planning on doing a much longer post on that topic later. I took a lot of pictures on that trip.. Including what I deleted, I probably took around 1000 of them! As you can see, from the second to top picture, I got really sunburnt… Like, really…

New Puppies

Our dog, Velvet, just had puppies a few weeks ago. The puppies are really cute. I took a lot of pictures, but here are two of the better ones. And I only photographed one of the puppies so far.


A concert

When we heard that the Bontrager Family singers were going to have a concert at our church in AZ, we were all wishing that we could go so bad. That afternoon, I asked Dad what we were planning on doing that night. He said “We’re going to the Bontrager’s concert.”. Wha…??? Well, it turns out that the Bontrager were here in Couhtemoc right then! They were doing a concert here before they moved on to AZ! So, we ended up seeing the Bontragers after all. And I made friends with one of her daughters who is about my age!

Well, that’s about it for March. And be on the look out for more posts soon! I have about 7 ideas right now…



Here is a family picture that I snapped real quick (I used a timer.) when we were taking a  video of us singing happy birthday to my grandpa.

Visiters from Kansas


In the month of November, we had a wonderful time with a few people from Kansas. Mr. Hobbs came with Peter and Elaine Cook. It was great to get to visit with them.

The picture below was on Sunday, and we went one a two hour walk. When we finally arrived at our destination, (the dump…) Mr. Hobbs took our picture for us. The houses in he background are part of our neighborhood.

Elaine and I had a fun time together, visiting and photo-shooting each other.

We had a great time with them! (We are begging them to come back…)

Until next time,

First Snow



We had our first snow a few days ago. It was actually the most snow we’ve had during our time in Mexico. It’s also been a lot colder. A couple afternoons ago, it was down to 22 degrees! And it gets even colder at night.

If any of you have noticed, I haven’t posted anything in quite a while! Well, I hope to start back up again. But don’t expect anything too often!

Until next time,
