Mexican Rivera 2011

W-O-W. it was amazing. A whole 10 days with friends and my hubby. My mom and dad were amazing to come and stay with our kids at our house through the week and Cody's parents kept them on the weekends. It was crazy to be without any responsibilities. It was so foreign. No packing diapers, wipes, snacks, binkies. :) We ported at Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. I attempted Scuba diving. Ha, i made it into the water and started to panic so i spent the day on the boat while everyone else experienced the sea life. Cody said it was amazing. I'm proud of him. And then we rented scooters in Cabo and toured the town. That was so great. It was an eye opener to see how these people live. It was a humbling experience for me. I complain alot about our house and the size. Woof. These families are living in shacks, literally. Pics to come.

In Puerto Vallarta we went zip lining. That is a must if you visit there!!! That was the funnest adventure for me. We got to repel down a mountain and free fall. Ahhh, it was so not like me. I'm not too adventurous but the group we went with are super go getters. So it was good to get out of my comfort zone. Mexico was crazy but in a good way. I loved bartering for our goodies. That was pretty entertaining. And the cruise ship was so neat-o. All the food and the entertainment was superb. We loved it. Laying out, eating like a piggy, watching Kim the karoke D.J. was the highlight of out trip. He is classic. If you get on youtube and search the carnival karoake man you should find him. Or just click here. What a hoot. By the end of the trip I was ready to see my babies. I couldn't wait to hold them and have them tell me everything I missed. Its funny how much you grow accustom to the chaos of children. Its always good to get away, it helps you appreciate all that you have back home!

There is a crazy amount of photos, so brace yourself.....

That looks like the best. We went on a trip just like that two years ago and it was so so much fun. Looking at all your pictures makes me want to go on one again. The weather looks great down there. I love going places where you get to soak the sun up. We went scuba diving too and suprisingly we couldn't stay that long because we all started getting a little bit cold being in the water but it is fun. Just watch finding nemo though and you will get a better glimpse anyway, lol.
