Chorizo nachos

The last night in Mexico, most of the engineering students went to a presentation. However, Renn, Professor Ryan Dupont and I returned to our rooms. Since, we wouldn't be going out to eat we dropped by the grocery store and bought some Chorizo and fresh Mexican bread (it's wonderful). Then we used up as many of our ingredients back at our place of stay as we could. We made delicious chorizo nachos. Renn liked his!

My sister, Christie, made my wedding cake -- all five layers of it. It was fondant, covered in fresh red roses and green ribbon. For a more modern look she chose to make a square cake.

OK, here's the truth, what Renn and I really look like when we wake up. After our first backpacking trip as a couple, Renn's hair looked like grass growing on his head and mine lay flat and matted as we walked out of the mountains.

This is us on our last day at the Hummingbird Inn in Maneadero, Mexico. It was a fun week of service with Engineers Without Borders. Renn and other USU engineering students helped put in drain fields at an orphanage, The Gabriel House, for children with severe disabilities. I helped dig some holes and wrote an article for the newspaper about the experience.
