Mexican Riviera cruise March 2014

Day 3  [Cabo San Lucas]
We didn't have that long in Cabo so we just spent the day at the beach.

A rare picture of our whole group!
I got these maracas for Olivia. Conrad got so mad that I didn't bargain them down another dollar. He talked about it for days; he is such a salesman! 

 Day 4  [Mazatlan]
Mazatlan was probably my favorite port. We rented ATVs and scooters and cruised around the city. We found a secluded beach and ate delicious Mexican food right there on the beach. We also rented boogie boards and played in the Ocean.

Cute Kiki and Mariah!

The hotel the Mexican drug lord, El Chapo, was captured at a couple weeks before we were there. Notice the guy on the top with a huge gun?! 

All the girls!

hiiii cutie! 

 Day 5  [Puerto Vallarta]
Our third and final port. This was another one of my favorite days! We did zip lines; it was so cool! At the end we rode mules back to our car.  Mine was so old I seriously thought it was going to die while I was on it.

Best guacamole ever! I've been dreaming about it ever since.

[all other days & nights at sea]

These Asian ladies were hilarious!

love these girls!

Olivia's second birthday party

 It was so much fun to have all our family and friends together to celebrate Olivia's second birthday. We had a Curious George themed party. She absolutely loves Curious George and is a curious monkey herself. Katie Henderson designed the invitations and decorations and she is seriously amazing! 
[her website is & she has an etsy shop]
Chef Pisghetti is a character from the book so we did lasagna, pasta, and salad from his restaurant. We also had a banana split bar. It was so much fun and I know Olivia enjoyed having all her loved ones there to celebrate. 
We had a book for everyone to sign and leave a little note for her. It was so fun to come home and read what everyone had written her and I'm so glad I did it. It is something I know we will both cherish. 

Rather than have treat bags each child got a Curious George book to take home. Everyone got a different one to match their personalities and interests. 

Make a wish sweet girl! 

Thank you to everyone who came out and made her day special!
