Mexico City Fun

The whole family took a plane to the capital of Mexico to complete the process for our visas. While there, we wanted to visit some of the sites with the kids and meet up with other Mexico missionaries as well. We stayed with the Grecos who are in their 2nd term as Mexico missionaries. It was 10 times better than staying in a hotel! Thanks, Dave and Cheryl! We met with Peter and Delia Breit, Josh and April Amiot, and Ryan and Christy Thomas and also had a brief visit with the Gruetzmachers and Pam Frey.

We visited "Ciudad de Los NiƱos" (Kid City) which is an incredible miniature city located in a huge shopping mall (yet separate) made for children to earn and spend money, working at jobs and doing crafts and experiencing what it might be like to be an adult living and working in a city. The kids had a blast!

A different day we joined our friend in visiting Chapultepec Park - it is a huge area of the city that contains a zoo, monuments, museums, and a castle. We enjoyed walking through a few sections of the zoo (it's enormous!) and the kids got their faces painted. Enjoy the photos!
