NEWS FLASH! - Granddaughter Kaiya Gets First Haircut!

 Our granddaughter Kaiya (daughter Tracey's 2 1/2 year old) looks a bit apprehensive during her first haircut....

But I think she likes the results, don't you?

In fact, she seems rather proud!

Traveling History Museum in San Miguel

While riding home from the gym one day, I saw a semi trailer parked in front of a small strip mall.
Loads of school kids were milling around.

Curious, I had to check it out. Turns out it is a free traveling Mexican history museum, part of the Mexican Bicentennial celebration.

No one objected when I climbed the stairs, entered and listened to the tour guide.

I thought it was a pretty nice thing for a small Mexican town.


I finally figured it out. Rather than write long blogs with lots of photos, I need to frequently write short blogs with just a photo or two.

I'm going to try it out.

Cross your fingers!

Also, I will include more photos of our grandchildren! Above is Lilah demonstrating her early artistic talent. This photo was taken 2 years ago, when she was just 3+. This is what she is doing now! Not bad for a 5 year old!

Museo de las Momias

Our town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, is located in the state of Guanajuato. About 50 miles away is the capital of Guanajuato, also called Guanajuato. It is a charming college town, colorful and fun to visit.

Its most famous attraction is the Mummy Museum, or Museo de las Momias. It is famous throughout Mexico, mostly due to a low budget cult horror film as well as a TV series.

In the last few years, the museum has been renovated and updated. It is no longer as macabre as in years past, although vendors outside still sell the same skeleton adorned candies.

A recent article in the Atlantic described the writer's visit to the museum. 

Definitely worth a visit on your next trip to San Miguel!http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0208306/
