|Caden, the Burger King Tiger|
The kiddos finally got out of school July 9th and head back at the end of August -- so summer vacation is only 6 weeks! Gotta pack it in and soak it up while we can!
Also on vacation is my sister, Deanna. Her and her family are on a Caribbean Cruise, and they dock in Cozumel on Friday. We are planning to meet up with them over on the island and enjoy the day. More from Cozumel in the coming days...

Speaking of flowers, summer is a time when I get to catch up on my gardening. I have an annual "yard revision" to figure out what's working, what's not, what I want moved, what I want to add, etc. (I think it's related to my obsession to re-arrange furniture.) I thought I'd share some really neat sites I have come across related to plants here in the Yucatan:
- Backyard Nature by Jim Conrad: Neat site by a Naturalist with a great page about Mexico's plants and animals.
- Jim Conrad's Page About Plants, Animals, and Ecology of the Yucatan
- Yucatan Livings's Recent Articles About the Trees of the Yucatan

While we are there, we are also checking out the Tunich Artisan's Fair just on the outskirts of Merida! Yahoo! Pots & Mexican Art! Nothing could be more up my alley!! I am on the lookout for sconces. It's one of the major things on the punch-list to finish at the house. Inevitably, I won't find them -- but I am sure I'll find something!!!
I never know how the adventure will turn out when we set out on these trips. Maybe the fair will be a bust, although I hear it's not and it's making me quite anxious to see! Maybe Ticul doesn't make pots. But, the laughter, good food, and beautiful landscapes are definitely worth the trip. I guess travel is like life: It's about the journey, not the destination!
