Cody and I took a trip together, just the two of us.  We spent a week in Cancun, and then a few days in New Orleans, while my parents were generous enough to keep the kids with them.  We went scuba diving, swimming in the infinity pool and lounging in the ocean, and a little sightseeing/shopping in Isla de Mujeres.  It was a wonderful time, and we enjoyed New Orleans as well, though - to be honest - we weren't overly impressed.  It was a nice city, with historic features; maybe living 20 minutes from downtown Philly and its' historic features (and food, events, etc.) have raised the bar for us.  But then again, Cody and I aren't into big, wild parties with tons of people we don't know - so we wouldn't enjoy Mardi Gras.  Overall, the trip was wonderful, and really helpful for us to have some time alone where we could relax together and just hang out!

This was funny - and VERY awkward!

Saturday was Hans Confirmation - we are SO proud!  He studied so hard, and was always willing to do his community service.  And the best part was having Josh as his sponsor.  Watching them study together and talk about their faith was really amazing and special for Cody and I.  My parents came into town for the event which was fabulous as always, but they had to leave today.  (How's the book, Dad?)  Here are some of the pictures from this remarkable weekend...



    These last pictures are of the 'headband' game mom had us play.  You put a picture in the headband, and then ask questions to figure out what it is while the timer is running.  Rather challenging - I think I'll stick with Apples to Apples!  But we had fun playing it, that's for sure!
