Pictures from our Mexico trips
Finally, I've had time to upload my pictures off my pictures and label them. So, today I'd like to share with you some pictures that we took during our two separate May trips to Mexico. Enjoy!

5/12/07- Snuggle Bug enjoying an ocean view of the sun rising. He was up at the crack of dawn each morning, which means I was up early too. I really didn't mind. Each morning we saw a group of dolphins feeding out in front of our beachside condo. It was a breathtaking view.

5/12/07- Here's Oronzo and Snuggle Bug swimming with the dolphins. For a mere $40 charge they were allowed to get into the water with the dolphins at a dolphin sanctuary. Oronzo and Snuggle Bug got to participate in the demonstration given to the large crowd that paid $6 to come see the dolphins. We learned that these dolphins were not taken from the ocean in Mexico. They were rescued in Australia and were in captivity for over 5 years in Cancun before being brought to Mexico.

5/14/07- Here's Snuggle Bug playing on the beach with two new friends that he made that weekend. Colin and Katie's parents were staying in the condo next to ours and the kids got to be friends. The three of them had the best time digging holes and making me run to the ocean for buckets of water to pour in the hole.

5/27/07- That's Snuggle Bug peeking out from behind his beach ball on the lawn of our rental house. I told Oronzo to get him a beach ball. I had no idea he'd get a ball bigger than Snuggle Bug! It took me forever to blow it up but Snuggle Bug loved it! The adults had fun playing with it in the ocean too.

5/27/07- Snuggle Bug getting messy on the beach. He would've spent the entire day out on the beach if we had let him. We had to be careful to make sure he didn't get too much sun.

5/27/07- Snuggle Bug and Oronzo hanging on the steps outside of our rental house. We had a great view of leaping fish, sailboats, dolphins, pelicans, and other sea creatures. Look how tanned Oronzo has gotten with being out near the water so much. That Italian blood of his allows him to tan without burning. Snuggle Bug and I are both part Irish so we have to be more careful.

5/27/07- My final picture is of Oronzo and Snuggle Bug walking on the beach. The three of us had so much fun together. Sometime in the near future we'd love to buy a 26' or 28' sailboat that sleeps 4 so that we have our own place to stay when we go to Mexico. Since we now live by the rule that we buy nothing on credit, we'll see how long it takes to save up about $12,000 for that. :)

I hope you all have enjoyed the picture show! Happy Monday!
