Hi there!

As we speak, Jon and his friend Gary are in Mexico racing (something like) 2000 miles from Oaxaca to Nuevo Laredo in the La Carrera Panamericana 2007! A ten day road race/rally that is a historical race dating back 20 years or so. They start off in Oaxaca and move up towards border of Mexico and Texas stopping off in a different town/city each evening ...blah blah blah. Actually its very interesting stuff, but I don't really feel like explaining it all right here, so you can always look it up if you want to learn more.

Jon and Gary are doing well so far and I believe have made it 4th in their class and 16th overall (On the 3rd day). They are apparently being treated like celebrities and of course loving all the attention that the locals are giving them. Signing autographs, posing for photos, fans screaming and fawning over them etc. etc. Good for the ego strength.

You can keep up with their adventures at http://lacarrera2007.blogspot.com/.

Meanwhile, here at home Natalie and I are fighting colds! Fun stuff. As shown in the picture she has her morning cup of Starbucks. Don't worry...nothing in the cup but it makes a cute picture. The photo is actually a couple of months old and since she changes FAST she looks different now. I'll post more pictures later.

I would definitely say that Nats a pretty easy going kid....chatty and social and full of energy. On Halloween we plan on going to her cousins house in Palo Alto to trick or treat. We'll see how that pans out since last year she screamed her head off when she saw the Halloween display (Four skeletons sitting around a table playing "clue") my brother put out. Thanks Uncie E!

She'll be wearing a pumpkin costume...hopefully. I may have to chase her down to get it on her.

Bye for now.
