a little update from vacationland



Oh my, oh my... We are having the most incredible vacation in the history of our family. I wanted to give a quick update and share some photos.

The weather is a perfect 87 degrees everyday here. It's tough, but we're adjusting.

On a serious note, this was a sad day because I learned that my grandma died while we were on the trip down. I wish I could be with my family as they gather to celebrate her life. But I also feel good that I was able to see her before she died while she was still alert and I was able to tell her good-bye. I'll write more about this later, I'm sure.

Not only are we having a wonderful vacation, but we have been excited to hear about some amazing changes happening with Discovery Toys. For those of you who are fans of our product line, you will probably be as surprised as I was to find out that we have a new, more modern and updated logo. It's one of many GREAT changes happening at the company!

Here we are posing under the logo. Let me know what you think about it.



Boy... going on a free vacation to Acapulco is tough. We are staying at an absolutely amazing hotel. The rooms are gorgeous and the food is incredible. I have joked that I love Mexican food so much I could eat it for breakfast. Here in Mexico, I really can! I am on a continuous diet of fresh guacamole and chips. Heaven.

Our toughest daily chore so far has been trying to decide whether to swim in one of the five pools at the hotel or walk a few extra steps to the beach. When the decision is too much to handle, we know it's time for more guacamole.

Here are a few photos:





P.S. I haven't had time yet to watch LOST! How was it?
