She yells as she bursts out of my room! Oh yeah! Hot mama! She got into my lip gloss and she was thinking she was hot stuff. So I told her how pretty she looked of course followed by don't get into that anymore. She loves to be by my side as I put my make up on and she always says, "Hallie, wants some pretties." I usually put a little blush and some lip gloss on and so this time she took it upon herself.

first grade this year isn't that great! Mackay was so excited for all day school and I am not going to lie so was I. He is my child who needs to be entertained 24/7. He was a bit confused he asked, " So am I going to come home at dark?" We let him no it would be just a few hours after lunch. He seems to love his teacher so far. Her name is Ms. Burch and she seems to be very nice. He has many friends that he know s in his class and so that is always fun. He was so excited to eat lunch at school. He brought his lunch for the first day. It all went good and he is excited for day 2. I must say that Jonah, Hallie and I did miss the little guy at home.

Our last day in Cancun we went on an excursion where they took us deep into the jungle to do a little bike ride to a zip line and then to a cenote, sink hole or what I say, a cave to go swimming in. It was a lot of fun. We went up there and I was most nervous about the zip line. We rode these bikes up to this tall hut looking thing where we had to climb these stairs. The stairs did not look one bit safe to climb up. They were wood and like falling apart and there was like this other family climbing up to the platform with us and I seriously did not think it was going to hold all of us. Amazingly it did. So there were 2 stops on the zip line and it went high over the jungle. It was so much fun and was not scary at all. We were able to do it 2 times. When we were done with the zip line we went into the fresh water cenote and that was the scary part to me. They had lights in it but it was still dark and just creepy. They said there were no animals in it but we found a turtle. It was pretty cold but it was refreshing but I was excited to get out of the cave. Anyways, the Cancun trip was Amazing and I cannot wait to go back in the near future!
The Hotel was Great. We took The morning bike rides and did some Kayaking. On the morning bike ride they made stops along the way and showed us the animals they had living around the property. When we went kayaking we did a double one and yes, Rob will tell you he did most of the work. It was fun though. We lounged a lot at the pool they had great hammocks to swing on. my favorite part about lounging at the pool was the cute cups they would bring out drinks in. The little bar tender people new me by the end because I was the only on the property who would order 2 pina colodas with banana, no alcohol. He would always turn to me and say, "So a smoothie ?" I would say, "exactly you should put them on the menu". Then the hotel had these night shows and they were fun they tried to do like cirque acts and dance acts and it was interesting. I got pulled out of the audience on the dance night. Now I have danced with some soggy guys but this was the first with ruffles.
