What a birthday




My 28th Birthday went over 3 days and it was my first birthday in Mexico. Saturday we celebrated with friends at a beautiful trout restaurant up in the mountains (only about 30 minutes away) called Linda Vista (which means pretty/nice view). The weather was perfect and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the view and good fellowship. Sunday Brad and I went downtown to a nice Italian restaurant & had a great time. Monday morning I opened all my pressies from Australia & from Brad! Monday arvo our close friends Alma & Ismael and their family dropped by and gave me some beautiful earrings & flowers. Monday night, I thought the b'day was over but at 7:30pm a family from a nearby village came by with ANOTHER cake & beautiful handmade presents!! 8:30pm we enjoyed meatballs for dinner with the family of 6 that was staying with us for a week. The best present I received was the news that my parents are coming to Oaxaca in September!!! How exciting :) Today I am trying to recover from the flu as we gear up for our first intern of the season to arrive - Tammy.

You guys really know how to have a good time! Sounds like lots of people there love you, Becca. I know that is because you and Brad love lots of them back. Thanks for sharing. But so sorry to hear you have had the flu since your birthday! That's no fun at all! Please get well. You are in our prayers!

I'm so glad you had a lovely birthday, but sorry to hear you've been sick. When can we get together? Do you ever come to Mitla? You know, I had a birthday yesterday. We should have gone to lunch this week....

aw happy birthday to you too Jamie!!
No! We don't usually go to Mitla.. Lunch would be great though.

Wow, sounds like it was an awesome birthday, and it's great that your parents can come to visit!

So how does this intern thing work? I guess I should know since I'm apparently going...haha. That was kind of funny to read...all the awesome people are named Tammy. ;P

God bless!
