Mexican Riviera

So I must confess we had a ton of fun on our vacation. We both took turns feeling nauseous as the boat rolled around, but it wasn’t too bad until the way home when it really started rocking. We went visited Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta.
We made some new friends, Stacey and Brandon, who were there on their honeymoon (CONGRATULATIONS!). They are from Texas and we really enjoyed getting to know them. I hope that we will be able to keep in touch as they are great people!
We had a “special” charter group on our boat. It was the French connection, a group of swingers.
It made for some interesting people watching.
I even got Jeremy to go to salsa and ballroom dance classes. This alone is an accomplishment because he won’t usually try. We did okay considering. Stacey and Brandon were able to totally trump us, but they had taken dance classes before their wedding, a clear unfair advantage.
The food was great and I think I ate enough desserts for the next year. I also learned that I love cold fruit soups so I need to learn how to make them. We had a picky old lady at our table, Denise (who was nicknamed Bernice), who sent something back every night. The rest of us at the table began to try and guess which course she would send back. I think half the time it was because she wanted more than one plate, but honestly the food was good.
This is the first time I’ve sailed on Royal Caribbean but I would recommend it. It was over way too soon, how fast 7 days can fly when you’re having fun!

So I must confess that I barely finished the 4th book. I loved it! This weekend we also went to see the movie. I liked it. I must confess that the actors weren’t quite what I had envisioned when I read it but I thought the acting was pretty close to the characters. What did everyone else think?

Terra’s Family Birthday Party

After Thanksgiving dinner we took Terra to see “Bolt”. It was a cute movie and both the kids loved it. Then we got to her favorite point of all, opening presents.

Terra’s Birthday Party

Terra’s 7th birthday fell on thanksgiving this year so we had her “Hannah Montana” birthday party last Tuesday. She had a lot of fun. I however, learned that 5 girls can make the noise of about 20. Terra really wanted a sleepover, I am very glad that it wasn’t feasible. I think we are going to wait a few years to have a sleepover.
