A lot has happened the last couple of months. First off, my parents, Tera (my sis), her boyfriend and my niece all came down to Texas around the first or May. They were here for a day and then we went to Galveston and left for a seven day cruise. It was so fun! This is was me and Dave's second cruise. I actually think I enjoyed it more this time... just because we figured out we could do whatever we wanted to! The first cruise, we were so afraid we were going to miss out on something that we didn't relax like we did on this one. We left from Galveston and went to Jamaica, Grand Cayman Island, and Cozumel. The first stop was in Jamaica. We went up in the mountains and took a canoe ride down. It was so beautiful! And relaxing. The canoes were homemade and a guide stood in front and paddled for you. The second island we went to was Grand Cayman. The original plan was to swim with the sting rays but the water was too high and they canceled that excursion. So we instead went on a little tour of the island. We went to a turtle farm where they had these huge turtles! You could hold the young ones but not the huge ones. It was cool to see them up close. Then we spent the rest of the day at the beach! It was so pretty! The third day was spent in Cozumel. We went to an exclusive beach called Nochi Cocum. Here we just swam and relaxed. We were going to go snorkeling but then decided we would just snorkel of the beach. Didn't see much but it was still really pretty! It was so fun to spend time with my family! I'm so glad they were able to come down and spend their vacation with us! About two weeks later, I went up to Idaho. My sister Theresa had a baby, and I really wanted to see her while I had some time off work. Baby Maci is so precious! She was a premi so she was only 3.9 when she was born, But when I got there, she was 6 weeks old and weighting a little over 6lbs! It seems whenever I go home, there is not enough time to see everyone and enjoy the family like I want to, but it was still a lot of fun! And last but not least, it was Dave's birthday last month. We didn't do anything big because Dave considered the cruise his present. What a good guy!
