A lot of us were kind of scared to stand on the corner (cough* Tracy and Jenn* cough) but, in the end we all had such a good experience that we wanted to stay longer. We even had some people ask what the "yes" was for. I think we got a lot of people to really consider voting "YES!"

There's an effort to elect an unknown random person as President... and it's someone we know! See this news website about the surprising new nominee:
Jot back a note to let me know what you think!

We sailed the sea and got used to the boat. Poor Dan got a little queasy and we laid low for a little while. The ship had food galore (I must have gained like 10 pounds... no joke).
Day 2: Cabo!
We have more pics of Cabo but they are on our Underwater Camera and I have not developed that yet.
We ported in Cobo and went snorkeling. It was so pretty and we could swim right to the beach to hang out. The water was a little murky because there was a hurricane down the coast but there were still a lot of freaky fish. It took me a while to actually look down with the mask. Every little thing that touched me made me scream bloody murder. Dan was trying to play it cool by acting like he didn't know me..Lol. We walked around Cabo and looked at some shops, but it was soooooo HOT! Dan decided at the moment that Mexico was not his thing.
Day3: At Sea
We relaxed on the boat all day. It was fun because they always had something going on. There were shows, live bands, the pool, dancing, karaoke, and much more. Later that night we had a formal night and had fun seeing the improv show. The comedian was a HOOT!
Day 4: Ensenada
Ok so I know that Ensenada is a dump,but we actually ended up having a lot of fun there. We took a tour around Ensenada and to the Blow Whole. There are only three huge Blow Wholes in the world and one of them is in Ensenada. It was really cool to see. Then we went down the street of shops and were bombarded by bartering Mexicans. (hence, the reason for my title). It was funny at first and then it got just plain annoying. We got really cool souvenirs for our family and headed back to the ship.
When the sun set over the water it was really amazing.
We had some more fun on the ship! They had a hypnotist show (Which was not convincing...but really funny) and we were presented with a Happy Anniversary dessert at dinner. We drank hot chocolate on the deck and watched the sun set (the ocean is a little freaky at night).
We got to San Diego the next morning and I was jumping out of my seat because I was so anxious to see our little baby boy. (Yes, we are crazy for leaving him behind for 5 days) Thank you Grandma, Aunt Carie and Gavin for watching him while we were away. He had so much fun with you guys! It was so hard to leave him but I knew that he was is good hands.
All in all, it was an awesome vacation and we would definitely cruise again. I don't know about Mexico though. Next time we will probably try the Caribbean and we will definitely bring Tysen with us...It was too hard not to see him everyday.

My Sister in law said it best when she listed the terrifying consequences if this law should pass:
“1) Legalizing same sex marriage may force some charities and adoption agencies to close their doors unless they openly supported same sex marriage
We believe that our Heavenly Father has an immense love for all of his children. We know that he lives and that he sent his son to die for us upon the cross. We love Jesus Christ and we try so hard to exemplify his example….we are not perfect. We are in debt to him and we want to stand in faith for what is right. Our message today is to help us Save Marriage and Save our rights as citizens’. This vote will affect our world more than we know. If it goes the wrong way there will be more rights taken away than given. If we vote yes, then no right will be taken away from anyone.

Here are a few mug shots of my parents catching me in the act.
