Mexico was fantastic! I met Ana's mother, and many of her close friends. There were many great memories, but the highlight of the trip was that I asked Ana to marry me, and she said "si." We will be married on May 15th, 2009.

Long-lost Brother

This week I had the opportunity to visit family I haven't seen in about 5 years. Indeed, one 3-year-old nephew I had never seen. We played some games, read a few books, and went to the Children's Museum in Rochester. The kids are quite intelligent - they have a strong vocabulary for their age, and have long attention spans for solving problems. They are also able to get along with each other, especially when they have a little supervision.
It was also a special trip because I took a few hours to see Palmyra, NY. This small town has historical importance for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I got to see the Joseph Smith farm, the Grandin Press where the Book of Mormon was published, the sacred grove, and Cumorah Hill.
