I just got back from a fun-filled weekend in the Outer Banks, NC. It was a great weekend full of sun bathing, volleyball, eating, relaxing, and all the drama that goes along with 300+ singles in one place at one time. Although it was very relaxing, I am exhausted and definitely am not enjoying being back at work. Here are some pics from the weekend. I didn't really take that many but I'm still waiting to get more from my friends. I'll pass some better pictures on as soon as I get them.

Steven can no longer complain! He has finally been to Cancun like the rest of us. We had a great trip even if Dad and I did go to Chichenitza once again. Steven and Becca enjoyed it as we did the first time. But I think they might admit that three times is a little overkill. If we ever go again with the family to Chichenitza, I volunteer to stay behind and watch the babies!
Our week was filled with a variety of experiences from Walmart on Saturday night to church on Sunday. We attended a Mexican fast and testimony meeting. Even though we couldn't understand much, we were impressed at the number of people who bore testimony of Jesus Christ and the gospel. Testimonies were short and to the point. The cleanliness of the chapel and the people (including the children) was in sharp contrast to the living conditions we saw as we rode in the taxi to the church. Becca and I commented on how hard it would be to raise babies in the primitive, dirty living conditions. But when we got to church, we realized that it must be possible because all the kids were very clean and well mannered.
Monday was Chichenitza, Tuesday - scuba diving in Cozemel for Dad and Steven; Becca and I took advantage of the resort and the spa. Wednesday we all stayed at the resort. We all (yes-even Dad and Steven) got manicures, pedicures, and a massage. The was an amenity of the all inclusive resort. Mike - watch out, you might have company next time you want a pedicure.
Thursday we golfed and Friday Steven and Becca swam with the dolphins and Dad and I just relaxed at the resort. All in all it was a wonderful week. We are anxious to go back and take the entire family. We really liked the idea of the all-inclusive resort and thought it might be the way to go for future family reunions.

I am now officially a Certified Facility Manager! And it was easier then I thought it would be. I took the beta test a couple months ago and since it was free, I didn't do much studying and didn't feel any pressure. I think it helped since I was anxious while I took the test. And, I passed! I'm so beyond excited.
