Busy Weekend

This past Saturday, Nicole and I got up bright and early and went to the historic center of town. We sat out on the patio of one of our favorite restaurants and shared a huge plate of fruit while people-watching. Puebla is such a beautiful city, it never gets old or boring to us. I am thankful for that. 

Fruit plate! Oh yummm! 

We also got some cafe de olla (coffee made in a pot - with cinnamon and sugar). I am not a coffee person at all, but this stuff was so smooth and good. 

These men serenaded us while we ate. "God bless and prosper our city, Puebla..."

The center of town

We got on the bus to head to our next destination and a man also got on the bus selling this gel. He was a good salesman, very convincing. This stuff was supposed to take away any ache and pain you may have. He said it was very thick like gel. He tried to demonstrate this by taking the lid off one of the bottles and turning it upside down........and a blob of it fell out onto the bus floor - whoops! 

The main point of our trip was to pick up some baby things from our Tia Hayde for a Sunday school baby shower and to see our little princess. Her pastor has been bragging for the past couple weeks to us about how well she is doing in it. 

At one point, Nicole was holding her when all of a sudden she burst out into tears. Abner got her and gave her a big hug and she immediately quit crying but gave Nicole such a look of "I am so offended at you!"  

Another errand we had to run was at Elder and Sis. Wakefield's house. They are out of town so we stopped in to water the garden. We also were attacked by ravaging hunger so we found ourselves a bowl of cereal. 
We are loving the timer on our camera - haha! 

Sigh. We had a lot of errands to run this day. Just looking at the pictures makes me tired. We had to stop at the candy store to pick out some baby shower themed candies for Sunday school. Very interesting store! 

We picked up what we needed, ran all the errands we were supposed to then got back on a bus and went home. We got home right before dark then spent the rest of the evening collapsed on the couch listening to Adventures in Odyssey. Great ending to the day!


P.S. - I have gotten several comments on my last blog post from people who can't believe the earthquake was so strong to cause so much damage in the picture. If you thought that picture was real....go read the caption again :)
