Hola familia!!
Well, first off, It looks like Cole is officially taller than me, almost glad I am in Mexico for this moment. But he does look insanely ripped to shreds. Easter here was super weird. They had a "Holy Week" so everyone was on vacation all week. It honestly didn't hit me that it was Easter unitl the second session of Sunday conference!! Halfway through, it just hit me and I just thought Wow. I am in Mexico.

But As for conference, my favorite one, as you might have guessed, was Boyd K Packers, when he said "A kiss and a cookie. That sounded pretty good to me". Now that I am on a mission, I am understanding way more what marriage will be like. I am super grateful for your guys example of really how a marriage should be, supporting each other even when you are kind of angry and frustrated with your bratty kids, but just loving us a bunch, so thanks for that. I know I have a year and a half to go, but that talk kind of mentally slapped me in the face, seeing as how I am that kind of guy. But, also it helped me to really have a direction in mind to lead our investigators who aren't married or who are struggling. It is very rare that people here in Mexico are married, so it kind of gives me a base to go for. 

I watched Saturday general conference in english, and then watched Sunday in spanish. Sunday general conference was awesome when the Members of the Quoroum of the Seventy talked in Spanish! And then Uchtdorf got up and went German on everyone! The spanish translators that were translating everything to spanish didn't know what to say and started laughing when he realized he was talking in German, so that was awesome! That has been my week and also I forgot my camera, so no photos, sorry!! But i love you guys and miss you tons!!

PS can you tell Brother Robbins we also listened to the Portuguese speaker in Portuguese in an attempt to see if we could understand it. We got the gist of it, but really Portuguese is just really bad Spanish
