Platinum Cruise

Sorry I've been so lazy and behind with our blog lately but things have been crazy busy and I haven't had much time! The day after Thanksgiving Bubba and I left on an 8day Mexican cruise with the company he works for. We had a wonderful time even though it's always hard to leave the kids behind, especially for that long! They stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Boyce for the first few days and then spent the rest of the time with my parents-I felt bad because they got sick right before we left, but they all survived and the kids kept telling me about all the fun things they did with their grandparents. It is so nice to have so much family living so close to us!

Our cruise left out of San Diego, and we stopped in Acapulco, Zihautanejo/Ixtapa, and Manzanillo. We spent most of our time on land just hanging out on the beach and snorkeling which was so nice and relaxing. We did go jet skiing once and we also got to go see the famous cliff divers in Acapulco which was crazy-these guys climb up this huge cliff (over 100 feet) and then jump straight into the ocean below-it was nuts! And some of the guys that do it are really young-we asked one of them how old he was and he told us he was 14! We didn't take very many pictures (so if anyone has any of us, please email them!), but we had a great time and it was a very nice break for both of us! Thanks Platinum!

So this is not the greatest picture ever, but you can kind of see the divers getting ready to dive off the cliff. Those little house/statue thingies are of the Virgin Mary so that the divers can pray before they dive!
