Mexican Cooking Lesson:  On Friday, Maria, a friend of our family, took us shopping for supplies to create a Mexican meal the next day.  Maria showed us how to make red rice, refried beans, seasoned beef, and chicken.  We also made guacamole, red and green salsa and a beautiful fruit plate.

On September 14 (Mother's actual birthday), Joel, Terry and I took her to the beach for the day.  We stopped by the beach house.  The big pine trees in front had been removed and this was the first time we got to see it.

Beach house without trees!
