Mexico City in November 2008

I guess I should catch up and post some pictures from
our trip to Mexico City.
It was truly one of the pay back times when you get to see and meet the people who love your missionary son or daughter! I'm sorry we missed that with Bryan and Jeff.
We had a great time sight seeing and visiting amazing families and attending the Temple rededication. We saw ruins at Teotihuacan and The Templo Major, Revolutionary Square and lots of other things that only David has pictures of. (so check out his blog)

Hermana Chavaria - a great lady who fed us well. She makes cakes to sell by the slice on the street I think. So she made one for David. It was one of the best cakes I have ever eaten. She and her family were so warm and friendly. We loved visiting them!

A very tricky shoe shine guy - He was walking along trying very hard to engage David in conversation. David was trying very hard to ignore him. All of a sudden he pointed to something and said "LOOK!" While David looked he jumped in front of him and got down and started giving him a shoe shine! It was very funny except that we were late and rushing to get to the home of some people we were going to have dinner with.

A view of Revolutionary Square and a huge, very old Cathedral.

This is the Templo Major. You can see how over the years they kept expanding the temple to make it bigger and better. This is right in the middle of Mexico City
next to the Revolutionary Square.

Christmas in Midway

Carter Michael Lindquist Is Here!

We spent Christmas at a cabin in Midway so we could be close to Provo while we waited for Lisa to deliver her firstborn son. He was due sometime between Christmas and New Year's, but he decided he couldn't wait and was born on 12-22 at 11:22 am. That is the day that John, David and I were driving to Utah. Julie called as we were packing up the pickup to leave (5:00 am ) with the news that they were on their way down from the cabin to Provo and Lisa was in Labor big time! Carter didn't want to miss all the family Christmas fun.
