Oh, Mexico

We have been out of town a lot lately and are slowly adjusting to reality. I can't believe its December 8th! With loads of laundry, school, work and then Christmas shopping.... we are busy bees. We just returned from our Cruise in the Mexican Riviera. It was absolutely amazing. I am so in love with the sun and I miss it like crazy. If only we could be on Amazing Race and travel the world. After living away in D.C. this summer, I definitely think that getting out of Utah every once in a while is a necessity. Traveling and seeing different parts of our world is so eye opening. On the cruise, our stops in Mexico were in Acapulco, Zijuatenejo and Manzanillo. The authentic Mexican food definitely did not treat our stomaches well but was soooo worth it. I put more pictures up in this post than I ever have... but we have SO many. It will for sure be a trip we never forget.



Finally an excuse to dress formally.

USA vs. Mexico

Friends for life.





I spy a starfish.

Dress.... 100% homemade:)



Grant in the Pool Dive. This is where the boys compete for money at the bottom of the pool. All the boys were competing for a coin that was worth $1,800.00, and even though he didn't find it, he still brought up $96 in coins. The video below gives an idea of how chaotic in can get... its crazy!!! (also, I am silent in this. please note that the girl laughing in this is NOT me.)


Ready to go home... or I guess just be DONE at the airport.

The Clarks said...

Hey! Could you guys do me a favor? We are coming to Utah and I never got the mail from your neighbors. My sis in law stopped by to get it and it was in his wife's car. I was wondering if there was some way I could get ahold of them before I stop by to get it. I don't know if they'll be home for the Holidays or what. Could you maybe ask them how they want to go about it? Thanks guys! Jen

Jess and Matt said...

Oh, I am trying not to be jealous, but I am! Mine and matt's cruise 4 years ago is probably my best memory. EVER. I am SO happy you guys got to go do that. And wow, that contest for the coins was totally insane. It looks like you guys had a beyond wonderful time. Like everyone else said, the pictures are amazing, and you look amazing too.
