Last Monday Tyler had his Thanksgiving feast at school. I love seeing him in his school environment. The class sang us two songs, and then the pilgrims (the grown ups) had all brought food to share at the feast with the indians (the kids). Aren't their indian costumes adorable? Tyler has been wearing his all week.
Later in the week Tyler and I decided to try out the Museum of Health. They have a Sesame Street Exhibit that is all about the body--body parts, how they work, organs, taking care of your body inside and out, etc. We loved that we got to meet Elmo, and I think we stayed in the Elmo's world section for almost half the time we were there, but Tyler's very favorite part, like so many children I'm sure, was the little display on digestion. Look at the pictures, and I'm sure you'll see why. We liked this museum and plan to go back to look at the permanant exhibit, we didn't even make it there we liked this so much.

We had such a great time on our vacation. It was a beautiful resort, and we had a lot of fun with our friends Joshua and Amanda. This was purely a vacation of R&R; we spent most of our time hanging out at the pool sipping our newly discovered drink--a virgin Miami Vice. Well, I did. That and spending some time in the spa. Dan was a little busier. He and Joshua went golfing, and also enjoyed all the activities on site--water polo, water volleyball, football on the beach, and so on. We stayed at the Excellence resort at Playa Mujeres. We were actually the first people to stay in our room, which was pretty cool. The only bad thing was that there were a few construction kinks: the fitness center was not open (and I was so going to workout everyday) and the hot tubs were still cold tubs. We had even payed extra for the room with a rooftop terrace and hot tub, and it was cold; we couldn't even use it. The resort was good enough to comp us some golf and spa treatments to make up the difference. The service was wonderful, and the food excellent. We would love to go back again.

We got our proofs back from our family pictures, and are really quite happy with them. Here is a link to our photograper's blog:
Amy is a friend from church, in fact she was Tyler's teacher for awhile, and we had such a fun time with her.
As far as our happenings go, Tyler and I went to Austin Friday night so we could be there for our cousin Nathan's baptism Saturday morning. What a fun time; Tyler loves hanging out with all his cousins, and he and his cousin Emily who don't always play so well together, did. Here they are with Ryan:
Grandma and Grandpa are here now to do us a huge favor. They get to stay and play with Tyler while Dan and I go to Mexico. It's a little trip for our upcoming anniversary, and we are so looking forward to going. So in two days, I should laying poolside, sipping my virgin pina colada, with a good book in hand. Ahhhhh.
