Relay for life

CANCER SUCKS!! I could say that a million times and still scream it from the roof tops. I've had lots of cancer close to me lately. Normally it's a friend of a friend or distant person in my life but lately it's been siblings and parents of people close to me and even a few friends. I decided it was time for me to do my part and do what I can. It might not be much but at least I feel like I am doing something, so I joined a relay for life team. My friend Libby recently had surgury for cervical cancer and I have joined her team Mia's Cupcakes. I am walking for Diana, Bekki, Jean, Shirley, Joni, Carolina, Libby and the many others who have touched my life recently. I HATE CANCER and I am going to do something about it. My goal is to raise $250 so hopefully with some support I can reach that goal and do something good.

Cabo San Lucas

We spent our last port day in Cabo! It is very pretty here. Lots of activity and people. We were all quite tired from the last two days and it was in the high nineties today so we finished up our shopping and headed back to the ship. We had a short day here it was only 7-2. We have now set sale and have headed for for home!


Yesterday we were in port in Mazatlan. We decided to book a shopping, beach and lunch excursion. We went and did some shopping in the "golden zone" which is a big shopping district. .We were then taken to El Sid Resort for some beach play and swimming. We had free reign of the resort. We spent the first hour playing on the beach. We had red flag seas which meant the waves were quite large. We then had a mexican buffet lunch and headed to the pool side. We had an amazing pool with water falls and cliffs that we could jump off. It was a very cool place with Iguanas everywhere! We liked this port think we'll have to visit here again (we'll have to talk Uncle Dick) back on board headed to Cabo!

Puerto Vallarta

It was SO hot when we got off the boat. He hopped a taxi to a place called Sea Life Park where we surprised Lena with a dolphin swim (her biggest want on this trip) Aaron and I did it too. SO so so neat. We got to play with them and they pushed us with their noses. It was amazing. The other side of the park was a big water slide park. Unfortuanatly when we went over to go sliding the water wasn't running in the slides. We were informed that the power wasn't working and that it would be fixed in 15 minutes later..... 2 hours later finally the slides were working. We went to do some shopping along the beach after that. We even found a Mcdonalds and had some lunch!! Back on the ship and headed to Maazatlan!

Sea day one and two

Yesterday was our first day at sea. We did a lot of swimming, watersliding and hot tubbing! The kids are loving that they can swim all they want and then take a break to get food! They both have unlimited pop stickers and love that they get to go to the bar to get their drinks! Lena and I stayed up late last night and went to see the Carnival Splendor dancers. She LOVED all the costumes and has now decided she is going to keep dancing so she can work on a cruise ship! We also went and watched some Karaokee though we didn't participate...yet!

Today was our second sea day. Again we spent quite a bit of time in the pool! We then had some down time in the cabin. Jason and I were out on our balcony looking around and we spotted a dolphin and her baby! SO cool but that wasn't the last of it we also saw a big ol' sea turtle riding the boats waves and several rays. Even cooler! I've never seen animals like that in the wild so it was very very cool! Tonight was a fiesta show with the dancers and again Lena was loving it!

After two days at sea we get to finally touch land tomorrow for our first shore day! Purto Vallarta here we come! I'll upload soem pictures with tomorrows post!!!

Day One

Day one was full of travel and getting acquainted with our ship! The kids are loving it so far! Lena's bag didn't arrive like it was supposed to and she was worried. It showed up finally and we were able to finally go in the pool! Spent sometime in the pool and lots of time in the hot tub. Unfortunately we ended up with the late dinner seating (1/3 of the boat is kids under the age of 18) so we don't eat until 8:15 means late nights for the kids as our show time isn't until 10:30!! They are being troopers though!! More later!
