Last week we decided to go to the movie with some friends. Since it was Fathers day weekend we let the guys choose the movie so we went and saw A-Team. It was pretty good though. Better than I thought it would be. Andie wasnt very into it but they were playing Toy Story 3 across the parking lot so she watched it for part of the time.

Here is Talia and Jack getting sleeping after half the movie

I am so glad that it is finally summer and we can go out and do stuff. Adam is on his summer break right now and doesnt go back until the 12th of July so we are trying to do as much as possible before school starts again. Only 2 more quarters though and he is done for good!!!

Jordan's Wedding

On May 20th Jordan and Ryan got married in the Mt. Timpanogos temple. I was so glad I was able to be there and be apart of it. I went with Jordan to take out her endowments on Wednesday. Then my parents, Caleb and Jared came down and we went to the wedding and luncheon on Thursday.

Andie really loved the cupcakes or should I say the icing on the cupcakes.

Friday they had their reception in Pocatello. We went early to help with the food and ended up staying for the whole thing. Andie kept saying "Jordan has a pretty dress." Also every time I turned around she was going over to Ryan or Jordan and trying to stand in the line with them.

Good luck with everything Jordan. I love you and you will always be like a sister to me. I am so happy for you and Ryan!

Day 5-7 Puerta Vallarta

Of all the places we went to this one was my favorite. I just loved the scenery the people and everything it had to offer. When we were there we took a speed boat to the other side of the island then we took jeeps up the canyon to meet our crew. These guys were so amazing and made sure we had an amazing time. When we got there they harnessed us all up and then we road mules to the top of a steep hill where we started our zip line through the forest. We even zip lined into the water and repelled down waterfalls. It was such a rush and so much fun. We went on about 20 different zip lines until we made it down the mountain. Unfortunately they wouldnt let us bring our cameras and they just take them for you but we couldnt justify the $250 they wanted to charge for the pictures. I guess we still have the memories though.

After we got back to the ship we decided to walk through town and to shop and find something to eat. After walking forever looking for tacos I finally threw a fit and had enough. Luckily we were right in front of a BBQ stand that had the best shrimp in the world!

This was Adams favorite night at dinner. Yes its true he had three lobster tails that night.

We all went and watched the Quest show that night that was by far the best show on the ship. We were all pretty entertained and got quite a few laughs in.

Our waiters were amazing and tried to teach us a few tricks after we would finish eating. This is just one of them.By the time the cruise was almost over I was ready to get home to the girls. I loved every minute of it though and will never forget it. It was fun being able to spend a whole week with all of my family. I hope that we can all go again someday soon.

Cruise Day 4 - Mazatlan

We arrived the next day in Mazatlan and decided not to make any plans and to just hang out, enjoy ourselves and do some shopping. When we got there we took a little taxi to a place called the "Golden Zone." When we got there we walked around to check everything out and decided to go to the beach for a while. It was so HOT that day we couldnt wait to get in the water. My brother Jared served his mission in Mazatlan and wanted to spend the day visiting people and my parents wanted to meet the people he had taught so it was just us and my two brothers Caleb and Cully for the day.
Adam and my brothers rented boogie boards and I decided to lay out for a few hours.
Then we went and walked around town looking for a place to eat. Everyone always wanted tacos but since I had gotten food poisoning from tacos the day before we left on our cruise unfortunately nothing ever sounded good to me.
We had been watching people parasail all day and finally my brother Caleb and I decided to do.
It was so pretty from up there I loved it. I even got to go for about twice as long as everyone else because they couldn't get me down. I was a little worried when I saw the guys running back and forth on the beach and the boat was stopped and I just kept going higher. Finally the boat backed up for a while and I finally started dropping. I loved it though and would definitely do it again.The city looked awesome. I loved being able to see everything from that high up.Then we met up with the rest of the family for a little bit of shopping and then headed back to the ship. We all piled into the back of a truck rather than paying for two taxis. We even got it cheaper since my brothers knew Spanish. The taxis were talking back and forth in Spanish and since my brothers knew what they were saying we got a deal. After words the guy got into trouble and he said sorry, I didnt know they could speak Spanish! Needless to say we got a kick out of it. It was so nice having my brother there and it came in very handy when shopping.

Cruise Day 3 - Cabo

After relaxing on the ship for a day we were ready to get off and have some fun. Our first stop was in Cabo and it was nice and hot for us when we arrived. Since the water is so shallow there we had to dock the ship clear out in the water and tender into shore.
While we were there we saw a few pirate ships and Adam and my brothers thought it was so funny even though they obviously weren't the real deal.
We got on a speed boat to take us snorkeling but did a little sight seeing along the way. This is the famous arches in Cabo.
And behind us is lovers beach.

The snorkeling wasnt the best but we still had a good time. The water was a little rough so we all swallowed to much salt water and the water was kind of cloudy but we made the best of it.

When we were done we walked through town trying to find some authentic tacos and went shopping and these guys were everywhere.

Also my dad found Santa while we were there.
We had a busy day but we made it back to the ship just in time for dinner. Even though we had already eaten we just couldn't pass up more amazing food.
