Merry Christmas from Roatan!

Roatan  Sunset 1

We're celebrating Christmas and New Year's from Roatan, Honduras this year.

We've made it to the island and have discovered that our rented house is about 20 meters from a dolphin sanctuary. Free dolphin shows all day! Snorkeling from our pier and lovely sunsets. Great company too... (as well as free high speed internet!)

I'll try to post a couple of pictures during quiet moments at night...but if there are few of those, let us say Merry Christmas to everyone now!

Thanksgiving 2007

Zoe y Max, originally uploaded by gerardlopez2001.

We spent Thanksgiving this year with our friends Allen & Courtney & Wiley and Jen & Jim & Emma & Abbie. We went out to a beautiful spot called Semuc Champey, which many of you have heard of us talk about before. We stayed in a small town called Lanquin about 40 minutes away from Semuc.

Max Transformers

Trying to get caught up with photos before the Holidays start. So to start things off here is a drawing from Max.

He is just at the beginnings of reading, but he has the idea....and he has figured out that Spanish is a lot easier to spell in than English! This is, of course, his interpretation of the Transformers.

Otherwise things are great. Zoe is at a very wonderful stage now and Max is enjoying school. Kim and I are busy with work, but otherwise good.

More pictures soon from Thanksgiving soon.
