Four (almost five) days of heaven. We went on a cruise to Cozumel, Mexico.
The kids stayed with Grandma and PaPaw Dean :) Thank You!!
The weather was perfect except for one day... Oh I was so sick, and it wasn't just the prego lady. Lucky for Jacob his stomach is stronger than mine on an extremely rocky boat.
Cozumel was fantastic. It rained in the morning, but the rest of the day turned out wonderful. We explored our way to the perfect, quiet little beach. Our friends rented snorkel gear and we all took turns. I couldn't believe how many amazing different kinds of fish there were.
Jumping off the pier into the clear water was also a highlight for more reasons than one, especially for Jacob. (wink wink)
We met some forever friends at our dinner table. We hung out together on the beach in mexico... notice everyone else got sun except for us. Even Jacob looks darker than me! Oh well, less wrinkles right?!
Did I mention the food was wonderful! I ordered at least two desserts every night. Sometimes two appetizers including a desert to start out too. Cruising while pregnant definitely has it's perks! I was still hungry most of the time :)
The kids did great! They were pretty excited to see us and their new maracas :)

She chose a ballerina theme this year. I have to admit I probably had a little too much fun making everything pink... It was my favorite color first you know :)
The Double Strawberry Cake was pink inside and out.
And it was delicious, anyone want some leftovers?
This girl is so big. I can't get over what an amazing little girl she is. She is so thoughtful of others and is constantly trying to choose the right. If ever she has a moment with Eli and I mention her actions being selfish... she quickly changes her mood and tries to be kind.
During conference yesterday she really wanted to open an Easter package that I am saving for next week. I told her to wait. I noticed that she got down on her knees a few minutes later and said a very intense prayer. I wish I could have heard her! Then about 5 or 10 minutes later she looked at me and asked, "Mom, is Heavenly Father talking to you? Or is Jesus helping you do anything?" I said, "Yes, he is helping me feel the spirit while I listen to conference." Then she looked over at her Easter package and said, "oh, well I really wish I could open that Easter package." I quickly realized what she had been praying for...
Luci snapped this one of Eli. Such a good photographer!
Our General Conference Feast was delicious and satisfying. I made fondue with lots of fruits, veggies, and best of all... pretzel rolls! These are so yummy!
Jacob has been waiting so patiently for the day that the kids would start pampering him. He announced yesterday as they combed and sprayed that fatherhood just became 10 times more worth it.
Now, I'm off to plan my menu...
