our mexican excursions+button lovin'

It took alot of work to talk Eric into going on this cruise!  I'm not sure why he had to give me so much grief leading up to our vacation, but he just wasn't very excited.  So I chose Mexico because I wanted the beach and sunshine, and I knew Eric would love spending time in Mexico again.  He served his mission in Mexico City so he is 100% fluent in spanish plus he knew the mexican slang.  It was SO awesome to see him in action.  He fit right in and the people just loved him.  And lucky for me... he had the best time ever! :)
Our cruise ship :)

Lover's beach.  Need I say more?
We really liked Cabo's beaches, but not the town.
Don't ask my why, but I am in love with this picture!  I want to blow it up and frame it haha!

We did a little more sight seeing in Mazatlan and went on the worst horse carriage ride ever.  Definitely our least favorite of all 3 ports.
My little dress Eric bargained for.  Knowing the language came in very handy!
Photobucket
Darn.  Those just would not fit in our suit case! ;)
Puerto Vallarta-our favorite!
Photobucket
We rented a jet ski and had the time of our lives!
Photobucket
Just relaxing and living the good life ;)  Best/biggest virgin pino colada ever!  And the coke is best in Mexico!
We can't wait for our next cruise!!  Oh and if you want our opinion...Royal Caribbean is the only way to go :)

p.s. Did anyone notice a couple changes around here?  I also spent a few hours slaving over those ridiculous buttons :)  What do you think!?  Love 'em/hate 'em?  I'd love some opinions!!

Awww how fun! You and Eric look adorable together!! We did our honeymoon cruise to Mexico and had the BEST time. I wish we had done another before the kids came along. Maybe for our ten-year anniversary, we can leave the kids and getaway on a little cruise... One can hope! =)

Yes! They are the light as air nikes! I'm trying them out for the first time tomorrow morning before i leave. So well see how it goes. They're the closest you can get to barefoot running while still wearing an actual shoe. :D

I'm still trying to convince myself that I would like a cruise. I just really enjoy lying on the beach so much that I don't know if I'd like to do anything else!
