Photos from the Weekend

I had an amazing visit with my sister Stacie and her husband and two boys. We really enjoyed hanging out with them. Our husbands are kindred church techie geeks, so they were in their own world speaking their own language, and Stacie and I are both (wanna-be) camera geeks, so we just took tons and tons of photos. We took a trip to the Dallas World Aquarium on Saturday, and we got to watch the Mayan dancers that perform there every weekend. They have beautiful, elaborate costumes and headdresses complete with live parrots. They put on quite a show.

They play drums.

They play with fire.
And they follow it up with a stern warning for the kids to NOT play with fire. Then they offer to take pictures and promise that they don't practice human sacrifice. Myatt and Tommy were the only ones from our group that were brave enough to have their picture taken.

For some reason, I am really curious about these guys: do they have weekday jobs? In an office cubicle perhaps? Pushing papers all day, and then coming out here on the weekend to douse their feet in flames? I really want to know.


  1. Now you've got me thinking. Wouldn't it be funny to learn they sit in a cubicle all week?

    Glad you had fun...I love the parrots. :)

  2. Okay. These pictures are AMAZING. I am so impressed with your photography skills. Glad you and Stacie had fun. I'll have to check out her place and see who has the best pictures.

  3. That would mean I would have to get organized and get my pictures off my camera. Hmm...guess I should do that huh? :-D

  4. Great photos!

    I really do wonder what they do all week!

  5. I'm going to be in Dallas in the next two or three weeks to welcome my new grandson. Please tell me where to find the Mayan dancers. As my children will bear witness, I'll ask anybody anything, and then I'll let you know! :)
