Thanks for a Great 31!

Thanks to everyone for wishing me a happy birthday this past week! A special thanks to my family for influencing who I've become over the past thirty-one years.

Here's another original Microsoft Paint masterpiece from my Dad-in-law, Doug. Thanks Doug and Kathleen!

Heche en Mexico

We got back into Salt Lake yesterday evening. Our five days in Mexico was a great retreat. The weather was nice and the location was extraordinary.

The place we stayed was beautiful. With a view of the incredible sandy beaches and bright blue water from the balcony of our condo and nice accommodations inside, we were more than comfortable.

This was not only my first trip to Mexico, but my first trip out of the country. As cliche as it may be, leaving this county made me really appreciate what I have here. The circumstances there are humble to say the least. The people are so impoverished and helpless. It's not like here where if your will is strong enough, you can make it. You can almost see the giant thumb that most of these people live under and cannot escape. I am glad to be home and feel fortunate to live where I do.

I am sure that Sasha will post pictures. Here's some video.
