Mexico!

Finally....some pics of Mexico.

I'll start with the really fun pictures. On Friday, we swam with the dolphins. Brian and Jack did the one with little kids, where you don't really swim, but get in with them waist deep and get to pet them, etc. Miles and Julie did the swim, but it was a little intimidating, and Miles got out right after feeding one. He saw those teeth, and said, "I want out NOW." So he then watched from the sidelines while Julie got a kiss and rode on the belly of one.

The next day we did a cruise on the Marigalante Pirate Ship. They fed us breakfast and lunch and took us to a secluded beach. It was about a 7 hour trip all together. On the ship they performed pretty much the whole time (except for when we were eating). At the beach they had snorkelling, banana boats, kayaks, volleyball, and other activities. There were the smallest hermit crabs I've ever seen on that beach. Poor Brian was sea sick, the ship put Jack to sleep, but Miles and I really enjoyed it, haha!

Here's Miles getting his sword and medallion for "winning" (all did) the kids dance contest. He was so excited.

The boys at the Disney show at our hotel. Miles fell asleep about 5 minutes into it and we left:

There was an awesome waterslide pool at the hotel, and we didn't realize until we got home that we never took any pictures there! We are so kicking ourselves. I guess we were having too much fun. Plus our camera broke at the end of our trip. But here is the main pool. If you really want to see pictures go to this link for our hotel and click on "candid traveler photos."

Julie and Brian went parasailing. It was amazing. So smooth and peaceful, that I forgot to be scared:

We went into Puerto Vallarta one day:

Our last evening, we went to a restaurant in town, called Las Carmelitas, way up on a mountain. The view was awesome, but the little "present" that Miles and I woke up with the next morning was not. You'd think since it's recommended by Fodor's that it would be okay.

And finally, Teddy, the teeniest lizard ever, who we found on our balcony the last day:

Pictures from the fair at Miles' school. They had a tethered balloon so that we could take mini-rides. Miles was afraid, so Jack got to go twice. It was really cool.
