Estamos Aqui! Part Dos.

We're here!  Safe and sound.

We arrived in Guatemala City around 9:30pm last night.  Our sweet friend Brady, picked us up at the airport and took us to a nearby hotel.  We crashed there over night and grabbed a taxi to Antigua this afternoon.

We found our casa, unpacked our bags and even made a trip to the bodegona (grocery store).  Afterwards, we walked home (5 bags of groceries in hand) and made "dinner"... which consisted of PB&J with a side of mac & cheese.  Not a very traditional Guatemalan meal, for sure!  But, the kids loved it regardless.  We quickly did the baths, watched a little tv, read, and now the kiddos are beginning to snore as I type.

Whew!  I'm exhausted.  :)

The house is beautiful... way nicer than our home in Franklin.  I can't wait to show you the view from my room.  It's breathtaking.
Tomorrow, we will continue to settle in... get the phones working and get out to explore our neighborhood a little.

For now, I'm going to spend some time with D, read, and hopefully get a full 6 hours of sleep... at least.

Feeling so blessed to be back... and, LOVING it!

Buenas noches amigos,

No, nada on the SYTYCD. :(
However, we did see some sort of "commercial" for it... I think?!?! There was no day/time of airing. O'well.

And, add to your packing list: A couple of flashlights (In case of power outage. And, it does. Frequently.) Also, extra socks for y'all and the kiddos. You will want them if you want to keep your feet semi-clean while you're here. :)

Love you... can't wait to see you guys! We'll touch base before you leave for sure.
