Another Long Travel Day

On Tuesday morning we traveled into Guatemala City.  I had most everything we needed packed up and ready to go the night before, but it still was a stressful morning trying to get away.  Travel days are hard work.  Traveling, period, is hard work. 

I snapped a quick photo of the boys before we left.  They were watching a little cartoons while we loaded the car.  I love their new shirts they were wearing!

Our first stop was for a late breakfast.  We ate at Sarita's in Cuilapa Santa Rosa.  It is a fairly new Sarita's and we love their play area.  It was the first time Ben got to play there.  He loved crawling around and swinging.

Cruz loves to color.  Many restaurants here in Guatemala give the kids crayons and color sheets.  He always looks forward to it.

One of his favorite things to eat at Sarita's is this pancake plate.  You can see he was already nibbling
on a few of the chocolate chips before I could snap his picture.

This trip was our first long road trip since potty training Cruz.  It went very well.  Thankfully we did not have to make any extra stops for him to use the bathroom.  He is doing great!

After leaving the restaurant we traveled on into Guatemala City.  As we were going down the road I looked over at one point and the boys were holding hands.  It was very sweet.  I could not resist taking a photo.

Our first stop in the City was at the pediatrician's office.  Cruz was scheduled for a vaccine.  He has not had shots in several months.  We had told him where we were going and that he needed a shot.  He was not very excited about it.
He weighs 30 pounds and is 36.5 inches tall.

I told him that he could have a sucker when it was over.  He quickly cheered up and ran over to the desk and picked out a red one.  He then played until David paid our bill and it was time to go.

Lunch at Taco Bell meant more play time for Cruz.

We spent the rest of the afternoon at our mission house.  Both kids took good naps which meant we got to rest also.  It was nice.

Late in the day we drove to a local mall.  David needed to get passport pictures taken for his Wednesday appointment at the U.S. Embassy to renew his passport.  He took Ben with him to do that, and I took Cruz to get a haircut.  He loves getting a haircut at this shop because he gets to sit on the moto.

There was a Santa and his helper walking around the food court which is near the shop.  Just as Cruz was getting down out of the chair Santa saw him and came in to see him.  Cruz ran over and gave him a big hug.

The rest of the evening was spent back at the mission house playing with the kids there.  Cruz loves them!
