Chapter 10 - Cozumel at last

I didn't take any notes. LOL. Bad debra. So I can't tell you where we ate breakfast, but I know our excursion met before 10:00 am, so my guess is we hit the buffet. Can't swear to it though. :)

When we exited the ship we made our way down to the dock - and there were signs held up for the various excursions. Now the one we booked was suppose to be a small group - so I was kind of disappointed when I saw they were passing out colored wrist bands to coordinate who was on which dolphin excursion. There were a bunch of green, blues & yellows - so I thought that meant we would be in a large group. When the man looked at our tickets he said "oh, you get the special bracelets" and he pulled a different color out of a bag on his hip. :)

Oh my goodness, I was LOLing when I read about you taking the girls down to eat instead of stepping out onto the deck! You go girl!!!

OK, I absolutely love, love love all the dolphin pics. It really is a shame you couldn't take your own camera but they have you by the you know whats if they don't allow it because who is going to say "no" to those pics??? They are priceless!! (well, not really, I'm sure you paid plenty for them, but still priceless!).

That Marie is a real sweetie, isn't she? Plus, she's smart enough to know where her bread is buttered;)

It was nice to actually see Deb in some pictures:) You look wonderful and like you are having the time of your life! Yay!!!!

John gave me a hard time about snubbing Claire.

I sure wouldn't feel too bad about snubbing a drunk while you are with your children. I mean seriously.

Your girls are too sweet and I can see why Marie would go the extra mile for them. She probably already knew you would give her a nice tip, so I am sure that isn't why she did it, she probably really genuinely loves the M & M's. They seem easy to love:)

$25 in the grand scheme of it doesn't seem too bad. You're right, you might as well go for it. Still, too bad about the snorkeling. Guess you'll just have to go snorkeling again sometime and take an underwater camera. I'll bet Kim and David can recommend one;)

Mickie asked Tomas since it was their birthday present, if they could take one of the dolphins home.

Aw, c'mon Mom, couldn't you put a dolphin in your bathtub?

It is kind of difficult when you have given them a certain level gift and then you switch gears. I am finding it hard with Christmas this year. We usually do it big but this year will be much smaller. Hopefully they are old enough to "get it". I'm sure you will figure out a wonderful gift for the girls next year, even if it's not a trip (but I have a sneaking suspicion it might be) ;) .

OK, call me slow, but I just noticed the "dreamworks Christmas" ticker and I can't even think of what it is? Why don't I know? I must really be dreaming to not know what is going on!

Oh that sounds like so much fun! I think that's going to be a blast!!! I really like Kung Fu Panda. Should be an awesome time.

I think the b-day party sounds like a great plan! Your girls are easy enough to please too, which is wonderful, so you can probably do just about anything and they will appreciate it and love it. You are building such great memories for them!
