Weird assortment of Cancun-y pictures

Dewd. Did I mention my camera has been finicky? Well. It has. And I went to Mexico to meet boyfriend's-family and here is an assortment of shots...and all of them have weird lines through them.

A mad jumble of life

On Monday I held a baby and her mom said, "If you sing a song, she'll sing, too," even though the baby is too young for words (or even, probably, coherent thought). So I sang a song from Broadway's "Peter Pan," and the mom said, "I think you need to sing a song she knows,... Continue Reading →
