Day 3 - Ensenada and La Bufadora

Ship at night!
Cool-y sky pic!
No Joke! We went to Costco and ended up buying not one, not two, but THREE (made in the USA) Mickey Mouse suitcases from none other than COSTCO :)

Bicentennial Celebration

Yoriko doing literal translation of "Blow hole"

Super hero to so many MEN!

Navigating our way to La Bufadora!

Day 2 - Elegant Night

"Quick! Take a pic of them so they don't have to buy it!"
(umm, pics don't turn out very well without proper lighting...aka FLASH!)

Day 2 - Catalina Island

Just for Kaitlyn :)
On the tender back to ship
On Pier
Me and my husband of 9 years!
While they segway-d their way on island, I was holed up in the awesome Avalon Library!

Yoriko was the 1st to get on...
Catalina for the day!
Mark's dream office!

Sail Away! Carnival Paradise

Off Duty Mommas :)
Our neighbors!
FINALLY! On board with Freddy :)
Yes, we are teasing the kids with this because we did not tell them beforehand where we were going, let alone with one of their favorite characters!
A little closer...
Almost there!
We were lucky enough (yet again!) to have Ong-y and Ba-y come back for Round 2 of "hanging out" with their grandkids... so Mark and I could escape on this BIG BOAT for a 5 day cruise down to Ensenada and back...

Autumnal Equinox


I am not sure, once again, where the time has gone...but Yep, it's AUTUMN! It was sort of blustery with definite cooler temps in the morning. I LOVE fall :)

Of course, this also means that I somehow managed to be a month behind in my blog postings. It must mean that we've had so much fun and NOT because I've just been lazy and enjoying my few hours of peace and quiet while both kids are in school!

Back blogging now...

She's come a VERY long way from being the traumatized flower girl at our wedding 9 years before...

We leave our kids at home for a getaway...only to go hang out with 20+ more TEENAGERS having an "80s themed" party!! EEK! don't know which is worse???
