photos from Mexico!

We're in Mexico with Scott's family - twelve of us - six brothers and sisters and their siblings, except Scott's sister Sue who having lost her husband, brought her son Cameron. We are having a blast laughing, exploring and putting up with everyone's likes and dislikes.

Day 2 at church. The ward in Playa del Carmen - 170 people in the congregation. They asked if anyone could play the piano and Melanie volunteered - one of the songs was a hymn in the Spanish hymnbook, but not in ours. Melanie did great at sightreading - in Spanish. Blogger is giving me fits in that it won't let me place my text under photos anymore - the proper way to write in my opinion - under the pics like the newspaper would. But I can't get the cursor to go under the photo lately, so I'm going to have to blahblahblah at the end. Sorry.

We took a trip to the local Walmart, yes, even here. I picked up some new sunglasses, tanning oil and a HAT!! just kidding, I did not buy that sombrero, but i loved that they had a smaller sized one for women. Actually at Walmart, they had EVERYTHING including huge crowds and lots of tourists buying food for their condos. It was amazing.

Day 3 - Took the ferry to Cozumel - an island across the channel from Playa. We rented jeeps and drove around the island. It was so picturesque and WARM. Yes, warm. Ahhh. We stopped at a small snorkeling spot and enjoyed swimming with some lovely fish. It was fun, but I hope to find a great(er) snorkeling destination on this trip.

We can all be grateful that Dad's wetsuit is not neon colors! Looks so warm and fun and entertaining! Bring me back something Mexican, like vanilla!
