Do the Starfish..........or NOT!!!

This was our fun filled day on the GREAT island of Haiti. Everyone had this big idea that they wanted to go do the 1800 foot zipline called the Dragon' s Rock. It was the scariest thing I have ever done. Of course I was the only one who didn't like it. We were told by our instructor that we needed to ride the Zipline in the "Starfish" position. This was both arms and legs sticking out and with your chest pushing forward against the harness. It was all fun and games for everyone else but me. I couldn't seem to let go of the straps. So that is why in the picture everyone is doing the "Starfish" and I am doing what I did, just holding on for dear life. The funny part is, at the end of the line your suppose to hold the harness..... Oh but not me, I listened to the guy at the end who told me to do the "Starfish" and I believed him just to have me hit the brakes at the end and my sunglasses went flying into the bushes. I still think they are
laughing about the stupid lady from Utah.

Lazy Day in Cancun.........

Jake's dream has always been to have a great nap in a hammock between two palm trees right next to the ocean. I think his dream came true!!
It is really hard to find him :) He kind of blends in with the sand.

Dunn's River Falls.......Ocho Rios, Jamaica

This is the Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica. I think everyone would tell you that this was their favorite thing to do. We hiked up the face of the waterfall, it was a riot. In some spots it was kinda scary, it was very slippery so we all had to hold hands and help each other up. The water was freezing!!! I don't think anyone fell but Beckie. I was ahead of her and told her to watch out for this hole, but I forgot to tell her about a tree. So she ran right into the tree because she was so concerned about not falling into the hole. Sorry Beck!!!!!


This picture was taken at the Mayan Ruins in Tulum. It was awesome to see them, we had heard so much about them. It is something that I have always wanted to see, but I don't think I would go there again. It was an extremely long day, and we almost missed our lobster dinner. Oh that would not have been pretty. Jake tried lobster that night for the first time. He did not like it one bit!!!! Can you believe that??? What is wrong with that kid. :)

I've been tagged....What the HECK is a tag!!!

1. I am deathly afraid of spiders and snakes (even the plastic kind) Anything of the creepy, crawly, slithery, black, hairy kind. Even talking about it gives me the creeps. I think I better go call my exterminator. YUK!!!!
2. Having said what I did in the number one answer......My favorite holiday is Halloween!
Go figure!!!
3. No matter what I have for breakfast I have to have a Diet Coke with it.
4. I get the newspaper every morning. I skim through the news, but I really only read the obits........I must be really warped!!!
5. Brad said that I had to add this one. It really isn't true but.......I am a bed hog!!! What more can I say, other than he is just always in the spot that I want to be in.
6. I really love to watch all the cooking shows. In fact I usually tevo most of them so I don't miss anything........but I HATE to cook. Go figure!!!!
7. Last but not least......I don't have road rage. I just own the whole road when I'm on it.

Trying to look respectable...........

This is the first "Formal" night. The dinning room was amazing
and so was "most" of the food. We tried escargot (snails).
Adam ordered them and I was really surprised at
how good they were. Beckie didn't think so, and we couldn't
even get anyone else to try them.

The Caribbean will never be the same!!!!!!!

Ready or not here we come!! Just before we boarded the Mariner of the Seas. I don't think anyone on the ship was ready for the Sawyer Clan. By time the cruise was finished everyone wanted to come to Utah. They couldn't believe we could have that much fun and NOT drink!
