I am not kidding when I say that each day is getting better than the one before it.
And friends are what makes the experiences even better.
Last night Bob and Janet finally made it home. We waited up until we could hear the rumble of Ed's truck, announcing his precious cargo.
We knew Bob and Janet would be tired and frustrated, but we snuck out for some "Welcome Home" hugs, then let them get settled in.
We were not too sure if they would be up to a trip to Mexico with us this morning, but these are two go-getters, and they were not going to miss out on the fun today.
We made the quick trip to the border, and our first stop was for breakfast at Rene's Bakery.
This place is always busy, and a large part of it's popularity is the Mariachi Band. They just get your toes a tappin' and your head a noddin' !
After a great breakfast and coffee, we did a little shopping.
It was a beautiful morning, and we were all just having a ball, talking and kidding around.
The first few times we visited this town in Mexico, we were still a little apprehensive, but now we are completely at ease, and we know what to expect.
Teresa picked up a few items, including a cute sun dress. I will have a photo of that, with her modeling it.
Even "cheap Trent" got into the spirit of things, by purchasing a folding table, and a bright orange lizard. Five bucks each !
And we simply can't come back home without a bottle of our favourite drink - Amarulla.
After returning home, we briefly rested before Round two began.
We were to have the BBQ cookout, to celebrate Bob and Janet's safe arrival.
Ed prepared grilled shrimp and portobello mushrooms on the barbie, for an appetizer.
And the verdict was a resounding - Delicious !!
Ed then skillfully grilled up some burgers that he prepared from scratch. Marilyn had cooked up some great tasting beans, and Teresa supplied all the fixin's for the burgers, and she also made a pasta salad with cut up cheese and ham.
Tonight, I got a few more chores done around the rig, while Teresa busied herself with more laundry duty.
We are trying not to talk about the fact that we only have two more days with these most wonderful people.
Tomorrow will be a very special day for sure !!
