The month of August was all about the trip we took from the 13th to the 23rd. Gabriel had gotten pretty shaggy, but I was waiting to have his hair cut because he was going to be staying at Olivia's house for the 10 days we were away. This way they wouldn't have to brush him everyday. . .
Alejandro, our second son's baby, was to be baptized in his mother's home town--Merida, Mexico--and we were flying to Cancun and taking a bus to Merida with them. I have not posted photos of Alejandro before now because his parents do not want him to have "a presence on the Web." This is also why I haven't been posting photos of Olivia or her little brother, August. As much as I wanted to share them with you all, I realized my son has a valid point. I'm posting this one photo of Alejandro incognito, though, and hope it will be OK. As I recall Alejandro's father saying to me once when he was a teenager, it's easier to get forgiveness than permission 😇 . . . .
Alejandro and his parents stayed at his other grandmother's while we stayed in downtown Merida at a wonderful hotel built in 1901. I will be doing several posts about our 10 days in Mexico over the next few weeks, but wanted to at least show you the view from our balcony overlooking the Parque Manuel Cepeda Peraza at 9:30 the night we arrived. . . .
As much as I loved our trip I was glad to be back home to look out my own window and see these in my mini-birdbath. . . .
