Christmas in Tepoztlán

Paul and I had a great Christmas visit with our son and his family at their new place in Tepoztlán – our first time sharing the holiday with them in a long time.  We also planned our visit to allow us to be there for our granddaughter’s seventh birthday… and it was also a chance to reconnect with our daughter in law’s parents.

It’s always wonderful to see the family, to hang...
