Mexico!!!

I cannot believe I let my 4 year blogging anniversary slip right by me! But I did. You see, October 25, 2004 was my first foray into the blogging world. Oh my! I was so timid, unsure of what I was getting into, yet, on the otherhand, excited...eager to share with my niece Claire and get her to join me in this new adventure. I am so glad she did!!! Now, I have to say it was her brother Dan who enticed us both to try this new adventure. We three continue to uphold the family!

You might be asking how on earth could I forget this most momentous day?! Well, I was boarding a plane to Mexico!! Yes, you read that right...Mexico!
We stayed at the Grand Mayan in Nuevo Vallarta but toured all around Puerto Vallarto, too. It was the. most. posh. place. we. have. ever. stayed!!! It was a tiny taste of how the 'rich and famous' must live. Who would have ever thought last year at this very same time our Pilot Dad was so very sick, fighting for his life. And now, a year later we were on the beaches of Mexico.



We snorkled.














Of course we did the shopping/bartering in Old Town and strolled along the Boardwalk.




One of the other highlights was Pilot Dad para-sailing!



Not only did we spend lazy days around the pool, and in the lazy river.....

Then there was the day we went kayaking and spotted so many iguanas!


Not to mention the ones by the pool area...

So, from Pilot Dad and Pilot Mom we will say adios from one of the many sunsets we saw while eating our dinner on the beach!
This was a truly indescribable experience for us!!

You deserved this vacation so very much after what you have been through the last few years. Now Dan and Melinda have someone to share their parasailing experience with. Your pictures were great like usual.

Thank you ladies! It is always fun to go but, oh so good to be back home! :)

Uncle J. is brave, I don't think I would have parasailed in Mexico. Tahoe was just right for me.
Good to see you had a fun time.
