Cruise to Mexico!

We got on the Airplane Aug 2nd to go to long beach California and from there we took this shuttle to get on the ship! On the shuttle because we were all SO SO excited we were all hyper and acting like like kids:)

While we were checking into Royal Caribbean They had me down that I was 10 years old so Gar and took a little longer getting checked in because they had to make me a new room key card. Well if you are under 21 they are supposed to punch a hole in your card and the guy leaned in to me and said quietly "I'm not going to punch your card so you can drink and gamble..." And I just thought to myself "dude you hooked up the wrong girl" haha of course I didn't do either but it sure was funny, but kind of sad at the same time because I wonder how many people he has done that to.

We kind of check out the cruise ship once we got on it and saw what was going on and then we were all EXHAUSTED from staying up late the night before so we took a little nap and then we had to wake up to do the life jacket drill thing...which we probably should have payed attention to but we were all too excited to and laughing because we looked "hot" in those life jackets....

That night we met our our 2 waiters who were so awesome!!! Alex and Ranauldo who named himself "The bread master" and man he would bring by the most delish bread the whole time we were eating.

The Second day was at sea and us girls laid out and read our books and listened to music and the guys did for a bit and then went and did their own thing. For lunch we went and ate at Johny Rockets and just relaxed by the pool and hot tub. I was so dumb though and didn't really put sunscreen on that day so I got burned bad and that night i was so burned that it made me so cold so I ordered Hot chocolate that night and Ranauldo remembered what i got that night and brought it to me all other nights, he always remembered what everyone drank!And we also that day had a dodgeball tournament that was so awesome until it got canceled because balls kept getting thrown overboard.

After dinner that night Kylie called Garett from their room laughing to death and just told us to go outside our room and Brandon was out there in Her dress that she made him put on and the best part about it was they locked themselves out of their a dress!!! haha!

The third day we went to Cabo San Lucas! We took a ride on a little boat called the "Sex Machine" out to Lovers beach and it was beautiful! And right across from lovers beach was divorce beach. We played in the water there and got eaten by this huge wave but it was SO hilarious!!!!

After we played at the beach Gar, me, and the Tuckers went Para sailing and it was such a rush! It was an awesome experience!!!

After that we ate at this really yummy place and got out picture on a beer bottle! Ha ha!!!

The sunset was so beautiful that night and we ate way too much for dinner again, but when we got back to our room we found our first animal made out of our towles...I had been waiting for it.

The fourth day was one of my favorites! We were in Maizitlan and we took these crazy driver taxis out to a scooter place and rode the scooters all around Maizitlan and it was SO SO SO MUCH FUN! I felt like we were in a movie weaving in and out of traffic and seeing all the cool sites. We were all so hot though so one of our stops was Getting 5 cent cokes! We also went boogie boarding there as well! One of the funnest days of my life.

This is the Cathedral we rode our scooters to-

That night we hungout in the sports bar and just relaxed before dinner!

The fifth day we were in Peurto Viarta and it was not the greatest day but "it was all part of the experience." We took this forever long boat ride out to a beach and the snorkeling was nasty because the water was murky and the equipment looked as if it has never been cleaned and it probably lasted a good 15 min. Once we got to the beach the place that we ate at "for free" was dirt floors and had cats and chickens walking around....yeah pretty much we all got food poising the next couple of days.

Cool Pirate ship

The rest of the cruise we were at sea and we just played around and had a blast!!!!! We were able to get these free ice creams anytime we wanted which was awesome but no wonder you gain weight on a cruise eh?!

This is Sam Our room attendant- He was so great to us so we brought him dinner every night.

We had so much fun and it was so great for Garett and I to be able to spend all that time together. We love each other SO much so this trip was wonderful. We were ready to come home though by the end of it!
