More Mexico!

I forgot to tell about the "Outdoor Adventure" that Jared and I went on in Mexico. It started out with us heading up the mountain, crammed into an army like truck with nothing to hold on to except for a loop above our heads. We were then harnassed (sp) up, given helmets, and put on mules (that's right, mules) who took us the rest of the way up the mountain. I thought I was going to die! The mule I was on was extra slow for some reason (I swear I had nothing to do with it), so the guide would get behind me and yell stuff to make my mule run. Did I mention we were on a mountain trail with a drop off inches from my mules hoof?! It was so scary. Once we reached the top we zip-lined down and repelled down a waterfall (that's when Jared thought he was going to die). It was incredible! We're so glad we made it back alive!

A trip to Paradise

The pools at the resort

We swam with dolphins, Kayaked, snorkeled, zip lined, repelled, and RELAXED!

These little wristbands gave us all the food, drinks, and room service we could handle for free!

Here are a few pictures of "The Grand Velas Resort" where we stayed

Jared and I recently went on a dream vacation to paradise. It was actually Peurto Vallarta, Mexico, but the resort we stayed in made it seem like we really were in paradise. It was incredible. These pictures don't do it justice! I want to go back!!!

I was eating lunch the other day and I looked over to see Parker get the newspaper off of the table and spread it out like this. He was looking for something in the paper and couldn't find it so he started scratching his head and saying, "hmm". After a little while he said, "Mom, I can't find Spiderman". Apparently a couple of months ago my dad had shown him Spiderman in the funny section of the newspaper. So Parker saw the paper sitting there and remembered that. He opened it up until he found the funnies and looked for Spiderman. I was so impressed.
