Behind gets busy!

Ok so in a nutshell......

Our Caribbean Cruise to Belize, Costa Maya and Cozumel was fantastic, I totally needed that blast of sunshine and that it was!  A blast and full of sunshine.  I am so proud of my husband for all his hard work so that we enjoy these free trips.  Its a nice way to reconnect, relax and re-energize our lives.  We also got to fly into Miami and meet up with my Mom on our last day...We cruised the streets of South Beach and Miami.  Its not the most fav place of any of us.  The strange congregate there I believe!  Weird Weird and I am used to that kind of stuff! 

Belize was by far the port of call, we went Cave tubing, that was so go through these underground caves on tubes with headlamps on and float along with the river current.  It was way cool. 

Costa Maya was nice except that it was hit by a hurricane several years earlier and they never really bothered cleaning up anything most likely by the looks of it due to money.  I took pictures of the homes these people lives in, if you can even call them homes...more like shacks.  The people seemed happy and content despite not having very much of anything.  Truly we are blessed country no wonder they all want to come here!  We rented ATVs and had a great ride through the city and along the coast.  We both got our henna tattoo's there...its a ritual when we go to Mexico.  I got a heart with wings for Avery. 

Cozemul is such a gorgeous place, I love the crystal blue water that doens't look real its so blue!  We went to the beach and rented chairs for $2.00 its was the cheapest day trip and one of the most relaxing...I sat in the sun all day, my favorite thing to do on vacation.  No one at home would recognize me on vacation, I am truly a different person.  No agenda, no email or phones to respond too, I read and eat all day! 

Baseball season began in sunny St. George, we played really well, although never won a game...but had the lead all the way to the end, can't figure that one out!  It was just nice to be outside and with our family enjoying what is spring all over the place except in Heber. 
March 10th was Avery Ann's Angel day and it was a good day overall.  I felt very peaceful and knew that she was with me.  Steve had a bit of a harder time but, overall time has helped us heal, although her place in our lives will never be replaced.  Kaden took the balloons from the Relief Society Birthday party and we brought them to her grave..Kade kept calling it her special day!  How sweet is that?

It was wonderful to spend a complete day with you and Steve in Weird South Beach! Funny..After living in so many places the last one being Northern CA, I am still NOT used to THAT kind of living. Glad I am where I am at in my life and dont' have to live that pace of life. Weird weird weird.

That Kaden is a very special little boy... so tender hearted.

Love, Mom
