Our Mexican Cruise

It is amazing how fast a 7 day vacation can fly by. Mike and I went on our 2nd cruise last week to the Mexican Riviera. A group of about 20 from my Mom's side of the family was there and it was a great way to see some family that I haven't seen in years. It was the first time we have left Julia for a long period of time, and while I was nervous to go, it was a much needed break from the kids and from work. Mike's parents were good enough to take on all 3 of the kids for the week and they kept them busy with trips to the park, the lake, Sea World, a baseball game and even a kids cooking class. Mike and I know that without them a trip away would never have been possible and we are so thankful to have family that is there for us. Beautiful Mazatlan had some great cliff divers and is a good place to eat shrimp.
I have to admit that one of my favorite things are the towel animals they put in the room!

This is on our way to snorkel at Lovers Beach in Cabo San Lucas. The arch in the background is the Land's End Arch and is beautiful with the waves crashing around it. We also saw a sea lion colony and did shopping on the pier.

So, the food was absolutely wonderful. I really loved the dessert choices. Some of our favorites dinners were scallop risotto, lamb shank, crab cakes, and fillet of beef.

This is outside of the ship on our way to swim with the dolphins. We loved this excursion and bought the DVD showing our encounter with "Triton". The cruise was great. I slept in almost everyday, sang Karaoke ( I tried to get Mike to sing Dancing Queen but he wasn't up for that!), went to a great magic show, read my book, swam, played cards, shopped and spent 7 wonderful days with my amazing husband. I am ready to go back again!
