Rocky Point (Day 5) The City Streets

A family friend of the Brown's lives in Rocky Point.  Their home is a big compound that is the size of a city block.  Inside the exterior walls is a squirrel monkey habitat that they own.



We had lunch at a favorite taco shop.  We were all able to squeeze in to the dining area above the small kitchen.

We ate 140 items...tacos, burros, and quesidillas.  
It was all so delicious!
After lunch, the kids were given $5.00 and a half hour to get the best deal on a souvinier of their choice.

Sunglasses, maybe?
Cassidy, Lauren, Ashlyn


or perhaps a colorful purse...


Here's what they ended up with!
We had such a great trip!  We made some new friends, re-acquainted with some old ones, ate alot, slept a little, worked some, but most of all we were once again reminded how blessed we are as families to have our homes, opportunities for education, and the gospel.

Until next year...(that is unless the kids are successful in convincing us this needs to be a semi-annual tradition!)

Hmmm...we'll see!

Adios Amigo!

I am so glad you write on this post! After we left grandma's tonight I was thinking "I forgot to ask how the building houses thing in Mexico went!" I got way more detail just looking at your blog than I would have gotten if I'd have asked. You guys are so great to do this service! Sounds like it was a great trip and you helped a Mexican family (I don't know why you guys didn't do your own house improvements!)
