Jump Off Of A Cliff

Yes, that's me, jumping off of a cliff. Yes, into water. What did you think I was going to do? This was a few weeks ago in Mexico, but I just got the proof (I knew you wouldn't just believe me on this one!). Why am I wearing a wetsuit? Because the wetsuit is the greatest piece of clothing ever made. It is like wearing full-body Spanx. Everything looks great!

Throw Someone A Birthday Party

Happy Birthday to LuLu! Yesterday we threw a birthday party for LuLu and all of her friends came to celebrate with her. I made her a dog-safe birthday cake, and got party hats for all of the dogs.
My mom's dog, Sophie, and my brother's dog, Sammy with LuLu.

LuLu in all of her birthday glory.

Sammy doesn't even have to see to have a good time!

Sophie got right up on the table to eat some cake.

Send Postcards to 5 People

Before we left Mexico, I decided to check another item off my list (one more to come, once I get the picture). Five postcards are in the mail to some of my favorite people (That includes you, Cole!). I'm already back before they got them, but hey, I sent them, didn't I?

Watch a Sunrise

This morning I got up and saw the sunrise. My family asked why I did it down here, and not at home. I think these pictures show a much better view than I would have at home!

Paint Pottery

Hola from Mexico! A few days ago, Hannah & I decided to make a trip down to the hotel next to us to take in a little "authentic mexican culture" (okay, so it isn't authentic at all, but it's fun!). All around Mexico, hotels have pottery painting stations set up. Generally, you just fill in the lines that are pre-drawn on the pottery, and the artist "fixes" your work, by adding outlines and details. This is what we were expecting, but when we got out pieces back, they looked just the same as they did when we left them. I guess the artist thought that we had done such beautiful work that it didn't need fixed!
