A visit from Mexico

This past summer we had some very special visitors. We had, for the first time ever to the US, My aunt, cousin and two nephews join us. They were here for a couple of weeks and got to do a lot of really fun things during their stay. One of the days, we were able to take them to Lagoon. I think these four had a really good time.
The Rocket and Jet Star
 Rattlesnake Rapids
 Samuri. They loved this one and went on it three times in a row.
Bombora. They were all so nice to take Oliver on this.

Like I mentioned, they got to do a lot of other fun things with many of our relatives that are local. One Sunday evening, we were able to host a BBQ with as many of us as possible. By the end of the night, there were about 40 of us. It was pretty fun. 

Tia Lulu, Tio Luis and my mom.

 We took the opportunity to sing happy birthday to Wendy since it was around her birthday...and stuff her face with cake. She was such a good sport.

And of course since this doesn't happen all the time, we had to take a group picture. However gathering this large of a group together for a shot took a while.

 Almost there.

Finally. The perfect family shot. 
As always we missed our loved ones that weren't able to be there with us, but we were so grateful to spend time with those of us that were there. As I always say, I love my Mexican family.
