The Halloween Weekend in Williamsburg began the night before these photos, when Nana made us some very delicious and perfectly spicy, homemade veggie chili. The following morning (pictured above), she had her great granddoghter try out treat samples at the farmer's market in Colonial Williamsburg - Jojo ended up selecting the Pumpkin Pie flavored cookies over the peanut butter and chicken flavors! Our Nana sure does spoil us and makes sure we don't go hungry.
We spent the last weekend of September visiting family and friends in good ol' Detroit. Each time we go, we fall in love with it even more. It's great to see all of the changes happening, bringing in fine dining and shopping into a city that was left a skeleton for decades - but a beautiful skeleton with great Art Deco buildings and a work hard/play hard spirit that never appeared to have left.

View from The Park Shelton towards the Detroit Institute of Arts and far beyond you see the RenCen.
We celebrated a few things in Detroit including my sister's birthday, a friend's birthday, and the Walk for the Michigan Humane Society, where my mom and Nikki raised over $1000 to help the shelters.
Places to visit in the city include MidTown, the Riverwalk, Kengisington Park (Metro Detroit), Detroit Institue of Arts (enjoy it's lovely park space too!) and the new Little Caesar's Arena.
One more piece of good news and happiness was brought to Michigan this trip.
More on that to come in the next post!
Sharing a bit about our recent trip to Mexico - la Ciudad de Mexico, Merida y Tulum!
Have you ever heard of that song that is the title of this post?
"Mexico, lindo y querido,
si muero legos te di,
que digan que estoy dormido,
y que me traigan aqui."
Roughly translated it means: lovely and loved Mexico, if I die far from you,
let them say that I'm sleeping and bring me back here to you.
We did a great deal of amazing sight seeing, eating and shopping with our parents!
My favorite part about Mexico besides the history, food and colors is, of course, family.
We saw the Zoebisch-Loredo side as well as the two J. Devereuxs!
Places visited were San Angel (El Bazaar del Sabado), el Zocalo, Satelite, Cuahutemoc, Polanco, Merida, Chichen Itza, Valladolid (Cenote Zaci), Playa del Carmen, y la Zona Ecologica de Tulum.
Pete and I've started a family tradition; see you next year querido Mexico! Gracias por las memorias!
