Well, you may be thinking that we are not making much progress on our journey north and you are right!! We had planned to be in Topolbampo by now, but alas, this is a hard place to leave!!

We had an amazing 10 days with Conni and Gunnar. The boys were ecstatic to see Gunnar. In fact, when they first saw one another, Gunnar ran at Jordan at full speed and tackled him. Thankfully, Jordan was on grass and had they had a soft landing!! The three caballeros spent countless hours in the pool together...and would go to be exhausted! It felt like every day was different...some days we did touristy things, some days we hung out by the pool, we took them out to a nearby island and Craig pulled the boys on the tube and of course played on the beach. I even got to have some girl time with me, it was wonderful to get away from all that testosterone!!

We're off tomorrow taking a bus to a town called Los Moches. That is the beginning of the train ride up through the Copper Canyon (apparently four times larger than the Grand Canyon). The mexican guidebooks describe it as a 'must see' and we've met several people who have been there and agree whole heartedly! The bus ride is about 6 hours and should be very comfortable. We will be off for about a week and then will return to Mazatlan and cross over to the baja side.

The down side is now we won't go to Topolobampo...not that there was anything that we wanted to see or do's just such a fun name to say and would have been fun to add to the list of cool names of places we have visited. Sometimes Marcus will just say the cool names in sequence for the sheer fun of it....Tenecatita, Zihautenejo, Pichelingue, Topolobampo, Manzanillo....
