The Weekend

We had a pretty relaxing weekend.  Friday night we visited a local restaurant/ coffee shop in our town and enjoyed cheeseburgers, hotdogs, and nachos.  They also had plenty of Dr. Pepper's.  I can remember just a short while ago that finding Dr. Pepper in this country was hard to do.  Since Walmart arrived we can now find it at many places.  You can buy regular Dr. Pepper, Caffeine Free Dr. Pepper, and Diet Dr. Pepper- even in Sayaxche.  That makes me very happy!

On Saturday we drove north to Santa Elena to have our vehicle serviced.  We left it at the shop and took a tuk tuk to one of the malls there.  We walked around some and let Cruz play on this large inflatable slide.  He loved it.
We ate lunch at Pizza Hut and bought some groceries before taking a tuk tuk back to the car shop.  We came home and just chilled the rest of the afternoon.  I cooked supper (meatloaf, homemade mashed potatoes, and English peas) and we watched a DVD episode of Dick Van Dyke before heading to bed. 

On Sunday morning we attended worship at a local Spanish church in town.  We have visited this church from time to time since moving here and wanted to go one more time before we moved.  In addition to talking with the pastor and letting him know we were leaving we also got to visit with Edgar, Anita, and Barbie Cosigua and Barbara Stoltzfus while there.  They are just a few of the many people we are going to miss from here!
Cruz enjoyed playing with the older kids some too.

We returned home, ate lunch (leftovers), and all took a long afternoon nap.  I made a batch of dough I plan to use today to make some homemade cinnamon rolls.  I'm hoping they turn out delicious!  We'll spend the next few days trying to get some more packing done.  We have made a little progress but still have a good ways to go.  The movers are scheduled to arrive the afternoon of the 22nd to finish packing us, and loading all of our stuff.  When that is complete we will be on our way.  I am starting to get a little sad when I think about it.
