Hola, amigos! Russ y yo fue a Mexico!
Yes, that's right. Russ and I went to Mexico...without little miss. She stayed at Grandma and Grandpa Otto's house in Iowa for a little over a week while we swam, had cocktails, and lived without air conditioning in the Caribbean (another story for another blog, Interweb).
I missed her so much. And, being the good parent I am, I took along a photo to look at when I missed her too much. Now, some parents might have taken a family photo, or a photo of their angel smiling innocently. Me? I took along this little gem...
That's right. Vivi after eating Pop-Rocks for the very first time. Awesome.
Russ found some in a store, and brought them over to Todd and Michelle's for the grill and chill. Little Miss Unsuspecting wolfed them down at first, because they are candy, and delicious.
Then, suddenly, a change in expression.
...and then...wait for it...one more time for the home team...
Ah, you can't help but laugh. Every time I was in Mexico and missed her, I looked at that picture and laughed my head off. I am so glad to be home, and to be back with my home girl.
