24 + 24 = 4 + 8

The subject line is the least painful way of mentioning that someone had a birthday recently.  It fell on a Sunday which means there wasn’t time to do anything particularly special, like going out to eat.  Haha…but it never means going out to eat on my birthday while we’re in Mexico because every year it’s a pretty big Day of the Dead holiday that day and restaurants are typically closed.  So, I didn’t miss out on anything just because it was a Sunday!

After our morning house church service, we enjoyed the company of some friends, an American-style meal, and a Mexican-style cake (“tres leches”).  Afterward, I got back to my class studies and tried not to think of how close my age is getting to 5-0.  Frankly, I’m a little surprised I’m still alive at 48, and I’m quite sure my wife is greatly surprised by that fact, which is a strong testimony to her will-power and Mexican gun-laws.  lol

Here are a few pics from the aging event:
