Caribbean Cruise

We spent last week on a cruise to Mexico with Kris' parents and his sister's family.  I only vaguely mentioned it before because someone mentioned to me one time how I shouldn't put on my blog that I'm leaving town because someone might read it and rob my house while I'm gone.  Narcissistic to think that anyone actually reads my blog, I know, but I was freaked out enough by it that I took it to heart.

But now, we're back, we're tan (for us - I mean, we no longer have vitamin D deficiencies), and I have pictures!  And I'm sure you're all dying to see how much fun I had on my vacation.  The narcissism never quits.

One last photo before we dropped him off with Grandma and Grandaddy.  He had no idea he wasn't going, and he had a fabulous time without us.

 They make your bed and clean your room twice a day and then leave you fun towel pets at night.  What's not to love?
 Luke and his two cousins loved the kids' club.  Eli was having none of it.  He ate dinner with us every night.  He had Grandma Bonnie's phone (games) all to himself. Why would he be foolish enough to go to kids' club?
 Eli did love the public pool at Costa Maya.  I'm thinking of painting our house the color of the building in the background.  Your thoughts?
 Luke floating.
 Eli "floating"
One of the few times we forced Eli to do kids club they had pirate night.  They both loved it!
 Because I'm afraid of robbers reading my blog, but apparently, I'm not afraid of perverts reading my blog.  Eli felt that the beautiful Caribbean waters were the perfect place to relieve himself. 
 I thought of you while I was relaxing, Catherine.  And then I stole your photo idea.
 For my sisters and Mama.
 When we were in Cozumel, we paid a taxi driver to take us to a resort where we could use the pool and beach.  It was beautiful and we all loved it.
 The obligatory family photo.
 One of the only photos Luke stood still long enough to take.  He would have stayed on vacation forever. 
Eli's stamina wasn't quite up to Luke's (neither was mine), and this was him by Thursday.

It was a great vacation, and we would do it all over again in a heartbeat.  After I recuperate and fold all my laundry.

That looks like a fabulous vacation! I have never cruised as somehow John did not get any sea faring genes from the Hoffmann side :)

I love you. But you absolutely cannot talk about a vitamin deficiency with a permanent address in Florida. Seattle wins. :)

After that negative intro, looks like you guys had a blast! Miss you bunches.

Just read through again. Love the feet picture. :) And I love that you didn't inform anyone of you leaving. I thought about that when I went to the I didn't give the exact departure date. We'll see if I can keep my mouth shut a bit more next time.
