Here are a few pictures from our trip...
Plane trip there (I know, it's not very exciting).
Here is the lovely photo of Kory's chest hair. For some reason he decided to be like Tom Selleck on our pirate ship cruise, so I had to take advantage of the photo opp.
This is a photo of a magnificent church in an old city outside of the Mayan Ruins we were traveling to. I thought the church was beautiful.
This was at Chichen Itza (a Mayan City) and is one of the largest structures in the city. It's so amazing that they were able to construct these stone structures with what little they had to work with.
The beaches are gorgeous--with white sand and azure seas. The sky was quite cloudy this day though, it was pretty rainy this first few days.
Kory and I attempted Salsa dancing and we had so much fun. I would love to take some Salsa classes but I don't know if I can talk Kory into it.
We went snorkeling and after the trip Kory was able to get up on the spinnaker which is like parasailing but the boat isn't moving. It's more like a swing with a parachute.
We had such a good time but we are definitely happy to be home. I was lucky enough to receive a bit of Montezuma's Revenge so I was definitely happy to be home and near a bathroom...not fun, not fun at all.

I know it has been awhile since I posted. It is rare that my internet is up and working--so tonight, while things seem to be running smoothly, I thought I would share Parker's new trick.
Parker learned to do a somersault on the 'trampoline' and tried to do the trick on the bed last night. He was jumping on my bed saying, "trampoline, trampoline." Because Grandpa and Grandma Anderson have a trampoline in their backyard, Parker thinks anything that is bouncy is also one. I had to tell him that the bed isn't to be jumped on and told him to try his trick on the ground. Well he did, and he was so proud of himself. He was going around in a circle doing somersaults. He was singing a little diddy, "Round in a seecle, round in a seecle (that is how he says circle). It was so dang cute and he was really quite good at them. Maybe he is going to be a little gymnast...I doubt it, but it is still so fun to see him learn and grow!
Here is a little video of his new trick:
