abby grad

abby graduated from her first year of preschool this week.

crazy to me how fast she is growing up!

she was so excited to say her little part and sing at her graduation…

until we got there…then she decided it wasn’t for her.

about half way through she finally went up on the stage

happy & smiling and sang a couple songs.

that’s so my abby…I never know what to expect with her.

she adored her teacher natalie and her classmates.

we love her so much and are so proud of her and all she’s learned this year.

mex 1We had such an amazing time in Cancun…

Nice people, wonderful food, beautiful beaches, no swine flu, nice weather,

pinacoladas (sp?), tons of relaxing,

Andy speaking lots of Spanish (me not understanding a thing),

lots of laying out, crazy bus rides and shopping…it was the best!!!mex 2

Oh…and they have ORANGE FANTA everywhere…my favorite!

Took this pic right after we walked 4.5 miles on the beach

(Andy made me do his signature “hang loose” sign).

mex 3The view from our balcony…the water was so pretty.

I was up at 5:30 every morning to sit on the
balcony and soak it all in (Andy thought I was crazy not to sleep in).

mex 4Here’s our room…we ended up staying at the Sun Palace which was incredible!

The first two hotels we were supposed to stay at
closed down for the month because business was so slow.
It was sad all the hotels that were closed down...thinking of
all the employees and families it was affecting.

Love the blue water against the white umbrellas in this picture.

“S U C K A”
