Favorite Moments, Week 3

Let me just say... my parents arrived in Guate and from the moment they stepped off the plane, we were GOING. Non-stop.
I laughed with them before they left on Sunday saying, "I will need at least a week to recover"... and, that was no joke! :) We had a blast.

Here are some of my favorite moments from week 3:
  • Time in Zone 3, the national cemetery and city dump, conversation with Brady over lunch.
  • San Jose and watching my kiddos play hard in the ocean, the smell of the salty air.
  • Mariachi band on the beach... HILARIOUS!
  • The Holy moment on the shore with the Guatemalan children.
  • Dad's "second round" at Sky Cafe.
  • Los Gozosos again... Emma's sadness about leaving her friends there.
  • ChiChi market and the crazy women harassing my mom and dad.
  • The "above mentioned crazys" calling me a few choice names in Espanol.
  • The beauty of Lake Atitlan.
  • "Little Victor" exclaiming, "what the ______?!?!" Cussing from a 6 year old. Driver's son. SO funny! Hoping my own kids didn't pick up on any new "spanish".
  • Hermano Pedro again... Holding sweet Ariana.
  • Nayeli's expression when she opened her gift. And, her hugs when we were leaving. Priceless.
  • The train and carosel ride... Mac's face and Emma's laughter.
  • "Gustavos" :)
  • 3:30am wake up for the flight to Tikal. The view from the top of Temple IV.
  • My mom in a tuk-tuk. Hilarious.
  • Pizza by the pool at Santo Domingo on the last night... swimming in the dark with the kids.
  • Slumber party at Santo Domingo afterward... all 6 of us in one hotel room.
  • Dad's kiss on the cheek... to wake me up in the morning.

My parents are amazing. They have HUGE hearts... and, they came all the way to Guatemala because they know I love the place.
I am beyond grateful for their love and support...

Thanks Mom and Dad.

I love you,
