Fun in the Sun

We just go back from Mexico and it was fabulous!! We had so much fun. Our family went with the Bua's and we had a great time! It was the perfect mix. We relaxed, we danced, we ate, we went on fun adventures, we parasailed, built sandcastles, the fun goes on and on...the best part, we swam with dolphins. I have been wanting to do it for years and Big Tony made it happen and it was great. I had a small moment of not wanting to teach and wanting to become a dolphin trainer! They are so sweet. Here are the highlights:
We walked out to go to dinner and here was what greeted me. What beautiful things God has created!

If you know me, you know I have a crazy fear of birds. This guy insisted on screeching outside our balcony everyday. Although beautiful, I feel him spreading his feathers was a way for him to block my entrance into our building. Early every morning I awoke to his squawking...his way of reminding me he was there.

When parasailing they dip you into the water. I never miss shark week and was NOT jazzed on the idea of being dipped into the deep, dark water; however, from my high vantage point I saw no large shadows so it turned out to be wonderful.

Up in the air. It was so beautiful and you could see for miles

How can up pass up a chance to take your picture with a huge Speedy????

On the dance floor. Mostly it was me dancing by myself...but we do have documentation of Shane dancing with me one time!! (Only because Tony threatened him...but it worked)

Do we look like we belong here or what??

Archery became a daily activity. We all tried it at some point and it turned into quite a competition. Here we are all packed in to "support" when I say that it really means make fun. I beat Big Tony two rounds and it was a great moment!! Dad was the best of us all and entertained us with stories about his early bow shooting days. He practiced shooting the bow straight up in the air when he was little in Gober and would dodge it when it came back down. What a great activity for a small boy to practice.

What great pictures! It looks like a fun time....anything that involves dolphins, bows, and parasails can't be boring, that's for sure!!! P.s. I never miss shark week either, one more week, and we can create a few new phobias, yay!

Looks like fun!! I was cracking up at the tiny life vest on Shane- not sure that would have saved his life haha!
