Hey! I’m back! What a wonderful five days it’s been. We had been so looking forward to a visit with Adam and Martha – we hadn’t seen them since we visited them in Mexico City in May. And with a baby on the way, we wanted to get in on the fun of hanging out with a beautiful expectant mother and hearing all their news.
So, Wednesday afternoon they arrived, and can you believe it, they brought the most unexpected treat!
They brought a cooler of Indian food from their favorite Indian restaurant. They even brought the dough to make naan! It was amazing, and we ate ourselves silly. And you know what? After eating at Zab Thai for dinner one night, we went back there yesterday and got a cooler full of Thai food for them to take back with them! (They just haven’t found good Thai food in Mexico City.)
We did all of our favorite things, and a few new ones. Lots of eating, drinks on top of the Freeman at sunset, and of course, dominoes. One day we got together with a bunch of friends at the beach for several hours of swimming and talking. We spent the day at Stone Island. We ate breakfast at La Puntilla.
One “must-do” for any expectant mother in Mazatlán is the compulsory photo with people putting their hands on your belly. Just check out the local paper any day for lots of these pictures. So we had to take one of them, of course.
Then of course Martha had to play turn-around on Adam so here’s what she did:
I wonder how far along he is? Notice the Mazatlán sweat rag hanging out of his pocket? They were HOT!
I won’t make you look at more pictures, but believe me when I tell you it was fun, and when those two left they were totally relaxed and with a little bit of Mazatlán sun on their skin.
And to finish out my story about the two of them I’m going to share a picture from their trip to Seattle the week previous:
This is a picture of Martha with her US Citizenship papers! And just in time to vote!
So, in summary, I am one happy mom…and I am probably almost as excited as they are about the upcoming birth of their daughter. I know they’ll be wonderful parents.
