top ten highlights
I had so many sweet emails from many of you telling us how much you missed us and were looking forward to hearing about our last minute vacation so here are some highlights.....
#1: Our first night in Galveston we stayed here at the Hotel Galvez. It is directly across from the beach. This was one of the nicest hotels I have ever been in and if I were to do it again, I would stay here a couple of days and do a little shorter cruise. It was seriously nice.
#2: We took off our flip flops and walked to dinner on the beach. Kiki, Reagan, and Brady's first time to see the beach and experience sand between their toes.
#3: Looking out over the cruise ship into the ocean. What a view!
#4: Progresso, Mexico. This was such a good experience for all of us. This is a very poor region. On the bus ride in we were able to see children working (instead of going to school on a weekday), clothes hung out on lines (no electricity), dilapidated housing. If I remember anything I hope to never take any of those things for granted again.
#5:In Progresso, we enjoyed a tour of the Mayan Ruins (sorry no pics yet, on Jensen's camera),
#6: an authentic mexican buffet(we decided we all prefer TEX MEX), ...
#8:Brady, Kiki, and Reagan rode on the horse with the "Charro".
#9: the beautiful turquoise beach at Cozumel.
#10: In the marketplace at Cozumel.
Overall it was so much fun. We are so glad to be home, though. Nothing like sleeping in your own bed. We are glad to be back among so many wonderful friends and family. We really missed you guys!!!!!!!
