He: Oh, my young Jamie Fraser! Totally hooked on this series... How did it take me so long to get to reading it? Ah, yeah... I did not want to get sucked into an 8+ book series. Well, guess what? I'm totally hooked. All this reading about Scotland got me reminiscing about our trip there. See pictures here.

She: Had a birthday and celebrated it with a trip to North Carolina for whitewater rafting (see last year's trip here). Happy birthday sweet girl. We love you very much!

I hope your weekend was fantastic! Happy Monday everybody!

Have a great week everybody!

Starting our Saturday with a 4 mile hike and ending it with steaks and loaded potatoes with like-minded friends, now that is what I call a good day.

Have a great week everybody

Through their eyes

Back with more pictures from Guatemala, this time from the Highlands, most specifically, Lago Atitlan. Here, without further ado, are the kids' favorites from Lake Atitlan:

Home basing in Panajachel - Perfect place for exploring lake Atitlan



Hiking on Atitlan Nature Reserve - Panajachel




Taking a boat tour around the towns of lake Atitlan

Visiting: Santa Cruz de la Laguna - With all kinds of beautiful and friendly faces



San Juan de la Laguna - with a great market

San Marcos de la Laguna - Learning all about harvesting coffee and making textiles all the organic and old fashioned way... Really amazing


Santiago Atitlan


Meeting Maximon... Just because, we gotta. You should have seen the kids faces... Just too funny... Mami, what is this again?

Bargain hunting in Chichicastenango




Market day at Solola


Trying all the ways of transportation: chicken buses, boats and tuc-tucs(being the favorite of all)



All the markets reminded me of Turkey. See what other places Guatemala reminded of here.
