Happy New Year & Mexico!

Bundled for New Year's Eve sledding at a local park.

The Nordic family.

Alistair plays with our neighbor Tomas and his sister Nuni at our neighbor's "bring your kids" New Year's party.

You turn your back for one second...

Former neighbor's Zara and Carol with Alistair.

Former neighbor's Robyn and Quinn who will always be about 2 and 3 years old in my memories...

Mexico! This zoo just south of Cancun is probaly the best zoo I've ever been too. Not too smelly, not too cruel and you get to hold or feed almost every animal!

Siena was not into holding the animals but I was! My sister-in-law said I looked like a "Mega Gringo." Indeed!

Erik and a friend.

She did touch a few animals, but barely.

Alistair and Uncle Jeremy.

Only negative thing: this scary pool right on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful view though. Siena and Grandma Carol.

The four bedroom shack on Playa del Secreto named Casa Canteena.

Our family in the courtyard.

The generous Grandparents who made the trip possible with their only granddaughter.

My brother Jeremy, his wife Valerie, and stepson Sam with Siena.

Once back to Minnesota, Alistair resumes his habit of putting food on his head.

OMG, you definately have Toddlers & Preschoolers....not sure what is more humourous-that you WAITED to take the marker out of her mouth to take the picture....or that Ali seems blissfully unaware that he's ravioli man!??!!!
