I Thought It Would Be Appropriate


The last time George and I went away without kids, it was October, 2001. I'm almost sick to my stomach when I look at me then and how tubby I thought I was. Ugh. Girls are dumb. Why don't we appreciate every little thing, instead of wishing for that other 5 pounds or telling ourselves we'll be happy if we could just tone our thighs.
My first time getting some luvin' from a dolphin. Very cool!!

I was learning some sort of dance! I don't know what it was, but the instructor was cute!

We went on a tour and took big trucks up the mountain, from there we hiked and swam. This was the day that a crab scared the hell out of me! Well, whatever it takes to get a laugh out of people I suppose. And they definitely laughed at me.

"George" getting kissed by the 'other woman'!

I was terrified about this one. But then, wouldn't you know it, when went home and bought a bird! 
This is the group we hooked up with while we were there. We went right after 9-11 and the place was pretty empty. It turns out these were mainly Canadians and flew in on the same plane. The couple in the white shirts were from Chicago and were leaving a day before the rest of us.
Another picture of the group. We didn't see a whole lot of them because in our six days there we did seven tours! We were voted the busiest couple!

Next to George, these were my favorite people on the trip.

So off we'll be going again on Friday.
Whatever will we talk about?
Whatever will we do?
How on earth are we going to pay for this?

All will be answered soon, I suppose!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Good grief woman if I had a picture of myself with ripped abs like that I would make my husband an iron-on shirt of me and force him to carry a copy of it in his wallet. Forever.

Look at those abs! I'm terrified of large birds. Are you going to swim with dolphins again? Lots of excursions or relaxing by the pool? Still jealous.....:)

You are SO right. I have been telling myself everyday not to fret over these 7lbs that have crept up on me because life is short. But you do look hot :) Have an ab time. I mean fab. See, your tummy is still in my head.

wy-not said...

Busiest couple? On a vacation? Babe, that's just wrong! This time, I hope you compete for laziest couple on the beach! THAT's what you need. Good books, long drinks, lazy swims and George rubbing suntan oil all over you, with plenty of sunscreen.

Melissa said...

Wow...i'm jealous...that looks like loads of fun!! I've always wanted to swim with the dolphins!!

Michelle said...

Dang, are you still rockin' those abs? :)

Susie said...

That looks like a GREAT trip:-) We swam with the dolphins on Mexico on our honeymoon and it was a great memory:-)

Rhonda said...

Just to clarify... This trip was 7 years ago. Sadly, those abs are a thing of the past!

Teri said...

Great shots! Can't wait to see the new ones after your fun trip coming up.

Have a great time!
