Before dinner, I dressed the kids up in their Christmas clothes for a group picture.. Wow was that an event. I think this was the best shot of all three, they were all looking at me (Wahoo!!!). Caitlyn was pretty preoccupied by all the shiny paper under the tree so most shots of her looked like this...We finished off home baked pizza for dinner and then opened our traditional Christmas Jammies : )
We finished the night off with a Christmas movie and then headed to bed waiting for Santa to come in the morning. Santa spoiled everyone this year and the kids had a great Christmas. We opened presents and then lounged about for the rest of the day. My Mom and I made a delicious Christmas Day dinner with Ham, Turkey, Cheesey potatoes, fried corn, broccoli and whole grain rolls. Here are a few pics from Christmas Morning...
Video of Dave on the Zip LineThe next day we docked in Mazatlan and spent the day at the El Cid Resort. We sat on the beach all day and watched the guys play football. Dave and I took a walk down the beach to see if we could find our hotel that we stayed at during our honeymoon, however the tide was in and blocked the way. Oh well it was still a fun day!! Our last port was in Cabo San Lucas, I think it was probably our favorite port even though we were only there half the day. We got up early and went to one of their famous beaches with The Barnett's and the Toone's. When we got there it was pretty much just us. There are two sides to the beach one side is a very pretty, soft sand, calm side called "Lover's Beach". The other side is called "Divorce Beach" it has rougher sand and the waves crash onto the beach. The sun was only up on the divorce side so we spent most of our time watching the waves and the guys act crazy.Okay so the story behind the Pelican is this... We watched this pelican get completely rocked by the waves and crashed onto the beach. It was pretty sad at first because he crashed on the beach and didn't move so we thought he might be hurt. Then he started to slowly move up the beach. Each time it heard a wave crash it would continue to move up the beach in a straight line, picking up speed each time it moved. Until it got right, and I mean right in front of us.. and then it just kept going, I guess it was thinking it would just go straight through us, but Doug and Brandy moved out of its way. It went a bit further up the beach past where we were sitting and dried out in the sun.
