Ben Franklin's resting place:
Betsy Ross' house:
We were able to stand where Abe Lincoln once stood:
Not to be outdone, Matt showed off one of his many talents:
Thanks, Matt and Randi! We had a wonderful time!!!
Leave it to me to end a post with a picture of a toilet. All that's left of interest in our Mexico file was the fun crap that was sold at the border crossing -- there was a gigantic bleeding Jesus on a cross, lots of porcelain crap, the usual food stuffs and, a first for me, Miniature Schnauzer puppies. We were tempted by the puppies, but Maggie would not have approved.
This week is pretty mellow. We will spend Thanksgiving at home this year - a first for us. Coming up -- pictures from our trip to Philly and, of course, Christmas decor.
P.S. If you haven't seen Steve's post from earlier today, see below. It's hilarious!!!
A quick break from our Missionary Montage and on to a little humor to keep you all chuckling on a beautiful Thursday.
Our new BFF we met while on our trip to Mexico works at a certain Natural History Museum and informed us of a fun addition to the gift shop. I'll give you all a few hints
Yes it comes with five loaves of bread
Yes it comes with two fish
Yes it comes with a jug for turning water into wine
And yes, of course, it comes with "GLOW IN THE DARK MIRACLE HANDS"
Here we have it!A Deluxe Jesus Action Figure (indeed)
These people made up the best team. We had so much fun together. These are friendships that will last a lifetime.
There were 42 people who went with us. What an amazing group!
Here are some of the faces we fell in love with while in Mexico:
Later this week, we'll share more details about our trip, the projects we worked on and, of course, Steve will share some of the humorous stories. In the meantime, you can see more pictures from our trip as well as learn about the organization we worked with by visiting the Sons of Salvation blog.
