Well, we did it! After months of planning and weeks of praying about whether or not we should go because of reports of drug-related violence, we went to Acapulco. We wanted to mark our fifteenth anniversary with a 'big' trip; we've never really taken one together before. Wow! It was such a wonderful, sweet time together! We slept. We read (almost got through my sixth book on the flight home). We marveled at the amazing beauty. We slept more. We haggled (unsuccessfully, I fear) in the market. It was awesome! God was so faithful to protect us and bless us with this time away together.
Some of the highlights of our trip: seeing parrots fly by (not in a zoo!), worshiping with a church there in Acapulco--where we were able to hear the sermon in English through headphones, meeting a gal who is from Kansas City at the same church, marveling that we arrived safely at our destinations after each crazy cab ride(!), watching the waves and smelling the sea smell. We made some terrific memories, and for those of you who knew about our plans and prayed faithfully for our safety, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
The absolute best part, though? Coming home to this sign and the sweet little people who made it. :)
