Shawn, Britney and Mexico!

We had a fantastic week with Shawn and Britney. They left yesterday and the house seems so empty since then. I really loved the time we had with them and wish it wasn't over yet!
We spent a couple days in Queretaro and a couple outside of the city. The first two days we went to Centro, the parks, drank Horchata and indulged in tacos!

This first picture was at a park in Centro. It was so funny cause after walking around a bit, Britney and I spotted a television camera. Instinctively we tried to make a big circle around them, to avoid them. The two dudes and the camera guy, instead, walked towards us. They asked if they could interview us for galavision on televisa. Sure, why not? It was awesome. We had Violet with us and not two seconds after the camera started rolling and the guy started to ask us why we like Queretaro, Violet started to lick her crotch. A few minutes later she was sniffing the man's crotch. Hahaha. Ryan just kept laughing and I was trying to discreetly mumble to him to pull her away. Yup, that would be the Franks for you. We had also previously mentioned to the guys that Brit and Shawn don't speak Spanish. He told them just to say "si" after any question he aimed at them. They unsuredly kept saying "si" throughout the questions, it was pretty funny! oh what a good memory!

Now what visit to Mexico could be complete without a visit to the taco stands!? They were, as usual, amazing. I also remembered to take my camera with us this time to have pictures of one of our favorite places in Queretaro, the stand with the "green guys". On a side note, Ryan and I made a calendar of all the places we will visit one last time before we move. Of course tacos is on the list a few times. When we went a couple weeks ago, I forgot my camera, but I will try to remember to take pictures of the other spots we have on the calendar and get them blogged.
Mmmm, the big hunk of meat in the picture on the right, is the meat for tacos al Pastor, my absolute favorite! I could eat them every night!

MMMMmmm, Salsa!!

We also took two day trips. One was to the geyser, which is where we had taken Brandon and Sarah when they visited. It's where this geyser fills maybe thirty pools of varying sizes. They have little cabanas and you just sit around hanging out and soaking in hot water. Easton LOVES it and was in the water almost the whole time. There is also a very daring zip line that I described in the post with Brandon and Sarah, back in November.

The second day trip was to Leon, where there are large malls of shoes. It is soo fun and every time I go I think of a few of my sisters and mothers, cause I know they would just love it! Britney is one of those and it was so fun to show her. The girl for sure did some damage. The trunk full of shoes is majority hers:)

Thank you Britney and Shawn, for visiting us!!! We had so much fun and are missing you two so much!! You are excellent guests and I felt like I went on vacation to you instead of vice versa! Thank you for all your patience with me and Easton! (He was pretty clingy and whiney while they were here. I wish those teeth would just come in already! )
