My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.

Vacation Photos, Despida Uno

I kept debating whether or not I should do a slide show or just post pics from the vacation, and being as I am one of many words I decided to include a brief (usually brief) explanation for each photo so you would have a clue as to what you were seeing.

And without further adieu:

Faith viewed the battleship as a giant playground... we did our best to explain the history, but with her it just seemed like tons of fun!

I'm 5'8. She's 9 years old... think she will outgrow me?

Daddy and Ava looking across the harbor (at the cruise ship- haha!)

Mommy finally got to put the camera down and hold her baby girl... what you dont see here is Ava clawing the snot out of me about 3 seconds later. Painful, yet hilarious!

Anchor chains do not make the best seat... but you can definately tell how large they are.

Jef's favorite plane- this is a coast guard sea plane called the Albatross. How much does he love the plane?... Look very close at his hat. And his shirt.

In the suite... Faith got a book bag full of activites to play with! She will still partially in shock at the whole cruise experience in this photo- she constantly wandered around going "wooah!"

Ava climbing. No one is surprised, right?

Home of the $1 Sol Beer and free tequila shooters. A couple from Salt Lake City moved to Progresso and opened this bar... their 12 year old son was with them. They had 6 months left on their visas before they had to go home for a while. Jef and I listened to their story and kept looking at each other like YES! This is totally something we would do!

Faith enjoyed a lime with salt. No tequila for her- promise (ok, she did smell it but that was enough to quell her adventuresome spirit).

What is it about these goofy cut out boards that no one can resist?! In the pic you can see the 6 mile long pier at Progresso...

Town Square... er Town Circle... er- the middle of town, ok?

Jef's Enchiladas- Oooh Yum!

The Girls!
To be continued...
And in the mean time, check out these animal inflatable toys... My gawsh- I am SO splurging on these for Christmas! No, really I am. I love these!

The USS Alabama! Woo hoo! My husband dragged me on that when we moved here, but I ended up thinking it was really cool!
