Mexico Adventure Day 1

Image
Hello everyone!
I just got back from my Mexico Adventure with Blake. It was Awesome!!!!
So i flew in on July 15th to Houston and rejoined my super hot husband. Then we drove 4 hours to Dallas to catch our flight in the wee hours of the morning. So we arrived in Cancun Mexico on July 16th. Wow was it hot, but interestingly enough it was not as humid as Houston. Interesting. I was still sweating though in the 90+ weather. We the hopped on our shuttle to head on down to the Riviera Maya where our hotel "Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda was located. It was about an hour south of Cancun. It was Beautiful. When we got there our room was not ready so we had to wait about 30min in the non air conditioned lobby. Then finally we took the little golf cart bus to our Building. this resort was huge. Good thing we like to walk. Anyway when we arrived housekeeping was still doing its thing so we had to wait some more. We had no slept for over 24 hours so we were kinda cranky. But at least they had cu…

Remember the time...

I got this from Sylvie Anne's blog.
I thought it would be fun and I hope you will play along.
Sylvie you better post something!

OK, Here are the directions:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July everyone. I hope yours was as fun as mine.
All the little girls wanted a piece of the action and I love this picture of them deliberating who would pick and what fireworks would be set off first. Look close and you can see them pointing fingers. I love Aaron's expression as he patiently lets them express their little opinions. can you just hear the squeals and heated debates?
Some of the other girls watching the show. They were trying to be brave and get as close and they could but they were still scared. It was funny to see them jump back then get close again.
Baby Clara's first 4th of July. Isn't my niece so cute?

Beach Time

S'mores anyone? After dinner we drove down on the beach to make s'more.
Our fire was a little sad but we still had fun.
Did you know that there are more that one Hay Stack Rocks in Oregon? This is Hay Stack Rock #2 or the locals call is Chief Kiawanda (sp?). If you live in Oregon you would know that real Hay Stack Rock is at Cannon Beach so I was surprised to learn that there are two. Who would have known. I guess this is the chiefs profile and his ponytail. :)

Pacific City Beach. You can actually drive on the beach! How cool is that? On Friday morning I went for a run on a beach similar to this and saw a seal that popped out to check me out. It was very refreshing and relaxing. There was hardly anyone out on the beach except a few surfers.
So nice. I love the beach!!!!

Jenny, this is for you! My big sister Jen has a camera pose, so this is an ode to Jennifer with our big eyes and raised eyebrows. Sorry people, i forgot my makeup on this trip so I look scary.

For all eternity. Funny thing about our rings is that he told me the wrong size for his ring so I had a hard time getting it on in the sealing room. I was pretty embarrassed but hey we got it on.
Me and my parents. It was great day!
Here is both of our families! What a great looking bunch of people.
