This weekend Rob and I and the kiddos traveled to Isla Mujeres for the very 1st Latin America Bloggers Convention or, as it has now been more appropriately dubbed, "The Blogger Blowout"!  Our fearless leader, Wayne, aka "Isla Gringo", did an amazing job organizing each aspect of the event and communicating with the attendees. Bob did his very best to tolerate our shenanigans and therefore he too is to be complimented. This year we had participants from Merida, Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres and Belize. I have no doubt that once word gets out about the fun we all had together, sharing stories and experiences, bloggers will be clammering to sign up for next years event.

Here are some random photos from the first day of the 2008 Blogger Blowout.
