Hemos vuelto de nuestro viaje del día de fiesta a México.
Yep, we've just returned from our holiday trip to Mexico. We finally walked through our door at about 2am this morning. It was an ab-so-friggin-lute-ly awesome!!!
The weather was beautiful, the people were gracious, the food was plentiful, and the tequila flowed freely. I could not have asked for a better holiday. It was good for us to go, and so fun to watch Ty try to speak their language and learn about their culture. We spent Christmas in down town Puerto Vallarta, where the locals were out and celebrating and having a glorious time. It wasn't about presents that evening, but about being with family and enjoying the true meaning of the holiday.
I did get to take some glorious pictures with my new camera. I can't wait to share some with you, but I did work today, and am feeling pretty tired. I promise to get some on the computer in the next few days. I learned all about taking the pics...now I have to figure out how to get them here. ;)
In the meantime, for those of you concerned about my shooting through the air and repelling down a waterfall, we did it ALL!! Everyone had so much fun and made it look so easy!! Me? Not so much. I didn't get hurt mind you, but I can PROUDLY say I did it and I'm DONE!!
Here's my little guy...he was so awesome!!
I got to the top of the first zip line, after riding a mule up the side of the mountain, and started to panic. It was HIGH and LONG. Breathe Grandy!! Then they asked for volunteers to go first and my son jumped up. Whaoaha??? I didn't say a word as I started to cry quietly, watching him get hooked up. I couldn't speak...why would I try and ruin it for him? At the same time I knew that he was only doing it to show me I didn't have to be so scared.
Well, for his sake...I did it. I was scared crazy stupid, but I did it. Here's a pic to prove it. Somehow I didn't look as comfortable up there as everyone else did...but I did it. Who cares...I can be comfy on my couch.
Will I do it again?? Probably not...but I can definitely say, "Been there, done that, got the T-Shirt". We rode about 10 zip lines that day, but I didn't bother with 10 t-shirts.
I'll post more about the "repelling down a waterfall" another day.
p.s. Did anyone notice how hot I look in a harness? No??? Maybe it's just me.
