Well life here has been busy. Which is good. The busier things are the faster time goes by. Here is a picture of the house. It actually is all framed we are just waiting for a roof. Next week I should have some pictures of the roof to put on.
Last night we went to the girls final concert. It was awesome. The choir instructor does three choirs. Children's, Youth and Seniors. The Children's choir which the girls are in is pretty large and they are very good. They sang beautifully. The youth choir the kids are 12-15 ish and the senior choir is high school age, university age kids. They are amazing. They sang some songs last night that just sent chills up your spin and literally took your breath away. You could feel the spirit in the room. It was awesome. I am so glad I had found this choir for the girls to be a part of. It was a pain driving to Lethbridge every Wednesday but well worth it. Next year life will be so much easier when we are 5 minutes away from everything.
Well the weather here has been awful and we are so looking forward to some nicer weather so the kids can play baseball and soccer.
We are off to Calgary for the weekend to see my parents and hang out with family. Should be fun!!!!

Welcome to life with Bryna. She really is like no other child I have ever been around. She is into everything and has so much life to her. You can't help but fall in love with her instantly. She definitely keeps me busy and brings new challenges to my life each day!!!!!!!

I get so frustrated trying to organize the pictures on this thing. The pictures are backwards to what I am going to write.
This was by far our most favorite day. We had such a wonderful time. We booked a tour with an LDS tour guide called Mosiah. He and his family run tours all over the place down in Mexico. We had such an awesome time with him. We learned alot about the Mexican culture and way of life. Saw many things and learned so much at Chickenitza.
My favorite spots were where he showed us Samuel the Laminate would of stood as well and the 2060 pillars that represent the stripling warriors. It was simply breathtaking. I felt the spirit and was so amazed by the structures and the Book of Morman coming to life for us.
It was well worth the money spent to have him take us.
After we were done at Chickenitza we went to this cenote that was about 5 min. away. It was simply breathtaking. After being out in the hot sun it was so refreshing to jump in and cool off. The jump was pretty high and you hit the water pretty hard. My face and butt stung for a few minutes. But it was beautiful. The Cenote itself was about 60 feet down and then from the water it was about another 90 feet down. There were vines and roots that hung down and little black fish that swam in the wate all around you. Sometimes you would feel them brush up to your legs.
We came home exhausted but so enriched and rejuvinated. I highly reccomend the tour and the cenote.
Well that is about all I have. Our last day we were going to go ATVing and then into another cenote but we were so wipped out from Chickenitza that we decieded not to go. So we went into Playa Del Carmen and did a little shopping and bartering and got some fun souveniors for everyone. Then we came home and I hit the beach for a few more hours while Rye took a nap. We ate our final meal at the asian restuarant there and it was very good. We were able to experience mexican, Italian, French and Asian cusine at the al la carte restuarants.
We had such a wonderful time and were ready to get home to see the kids. Not so ready to be home to the freaking cold weather that welcomed us.
I can't wait to go back again and take the kids. Our goal is in 5 years. To save up and take the kidos with us. And hopefully grandma and grandpa so we can have some extra hands.
Well It has been almost a month since we left which is crazy to think. My tan is almost gone but we are on the count down for the house. I have some more pictures to post and hopefully will get to that later. We should have a roof on by the end of the week.
So long for now.

wedding day

I am trying to get these posts done. The computer here is so slow and takes forever for my pictures to down load that I don't always get them done. Anyway this day was a nice relaxing day. We just took it easy at the resort. Slept in, layed by the beach, went swimming in the ocean and did some reading. Well Ryan did some reading. I tried I just wasn't into it. I just preferred to lay and feel the sun on me and sleep and enjoy the peace and quiet.
We had to be ready by 5 for the wedding.
We had an enjoyable night. The wedding was beautiful and we had a great time visiting and celebrating Jay's marriage.
