A Weekend Full of Friends

Our weekend began by having dinner with the Stamps.  They took us out to eat to celebrate our completion of language study.  We also spent some time discussing our immediate future plans and current job assignment.  We are currently trying to write some goals for the next few months and will meet with them again on Thursday night to work on them.  We are going to miss our get-togethers with them when we get moved up North.

We spent Saturday night in Guatemala City visiting with friends who were in town.  Allen and Laurelle have been our good friends since we first arrived in Guatemala back in 2006.  They were serving here then.  They have since returned to the States but make a few trips each year back to lead volunteer teams.  Last week they were here doing some scouting for two teams they will be leading in October.  We were able to visit with them in the City before they returned home.  We always enjoy our time together!

Cruz was not so sure about the new faces at first as you can tell from these photos.  He was wanting his Mama and Daddy close by!  He has just started doing that.
But, he soon warmed up to them and started liking all of the attention he received.

For dinner we went out to eat at TGI Friday's.  We will never be able to go there and not think of the Stoudenmire's.  We have enjoyed many meals there together.

He loves this teething ring!

For Sunday lunch we ate at Nais.

We returned home to Antigua later that afternoon.  It was a busy weekend but an enjoyable one.  We are looking forward to their return in October and hoping to squeeze in another visit.  Cruz was wore out!  He was in bed before 8:00 p.m. on Sunday night and slept until 6:30 a.m.  I then fed him and played a little while before he went back to sleep and slept another 2 hours.  Poor baby!  I think he just needed some quiet time.

  1. That look on Cruz's face means that he wants a cup of that coffee. RLB
