this little town is just across the freeway from us and its "real" Mexico. sometimes in our neighborhood i forget where we are. we watched Nacho Libre the other night and it totally resembled this place! we get our water here and lots of our produce. 

Graham got sick the other day, poor boy. 

iphone pics:

so excited i could cry!

the boys got hair cuts here for about $3 each,

She styled them a little funny! but did a pretty good job with the cuts!

girls night at the movies! so needed and so fun

breakfast buffet on a saturday morning $5 for all you can eat

Paige's new boyfriend airing up our tires. Seriously Paige, I got his number for you.

Graham's new friend Kylee 

at the preschool he was going to go to but now we are waiting until next year.

we don't have bath :(


i've been trying to drive a lot here and i've gotten lost so much. 

i've been cooking a ton. like almost every meal?! 

we go to costco a lot. 

Sadie is sweet.

Pastries. Too good!

This week has been hard and good. I feel like I'm getting more settled in and figuring more things out. I'm also realizing how much work it's going to be here and how I really, really need to learn Spanish. I figured by just living in Mexico I would pick it up. But no, it's going to be lots of hard work. I'm excited tho! 


  1. I love that picture of you & Patty. You both look beautiful! That picture of Sadie in the air is adorable. And Kylee sort of looks homeless in her picture. Oops.

  2. I had to crack up at your "cooking" picture! Funny. We REALLY have to meet up again soon. By the way, I love it when newbies come because it it like reliving everything I went through but through someone else's lens. Hang in there. It might not always feel like it gets easier, but you learn to adjust a modify so it feels like things are better :)
