Our Cruise 2008

For my Moms 50th birthday she wanted to go on a family vacation. So my parents took all 19 of us on a cruise to the Mexican Riveria for 7 days. We went on Princess Cruise lines Golden Princess. It was a beautiful HUGE ship. In fact in Mazatlan we were ported with two other ships, and our ship dwarfed all those others. We had a great time!
Elle and her cousin Macady on the flight to California.

The Ship had four pools. The outside main pool was the perfect pool for the kids, where they could play in shallow water. The pools were fresh water too...which made it really nice. Elle loved going swimming with all her cousins. Dave took her swimming each time, while I watched and got some sun!

Of course all we felt like we did was eat. Here are a few pictures of us at dinner.

In Puerto Vallarta, Dave took Elle to hold a "Big Bird". She let the bird kiss her cheek...she loved it.

In Mazatlan we spent the day at the beach. Elle's cousins were getting their hair braided, so she had to get hers done too. She looked so cute afterwards. Dave and I also went parasailing. The launched us from the beach and landed us on the beach too. It was a lot of sun. I got a lot of sun this day, and broke out into a sun rash...luckly it only lasted a day...and then went away. We had a great time on the beach this day!

This is Elle after she got her hair braided with her cousin Rylee (Rylee is 14 months older then Elle.)

We had such a good time. Our last port was Cabo San Lucas, and I forgot our camera on the ship. The boys when deep sea fishing, and the girls went shopping. I love Cabo, and I'm tempted to go and stay for a week just in Cabo San Lucas. We had a great time on the cruise....and can't wait to go on another one.

Hey, that looks like so much fun! And the parasailing, wow! I'm a scaredy-cat. Don't think I could handle that one. I'm glad you guys had a blast and your home safe!

Is that you up in the air? You are FEARLESS. I get scared on top of a ladder. :)
