Mexico-in a nutshell

If you follow me on Instagram {scartmill} 
you know we vacationed in Cancun last week.

I found Instagram to be the best way to take 
pics and if you are sick of me on there, I'm sorry.

I didn't want to be on my phone or technology too 
much, I was on vaca.  But carrying a camera too,
became cumbersome.  Let me know if you are on it,
I would love to follow gives such a good peak 
into someone's life and what 
they find beautiful.

Overall, it was a great trip.
Kids were well behaved and
basically became fish for 7 days.

Branmuffin and I did the teamwork
thing well-his part included an
afternoon nap with the kids 
while I sunned my buns and
read a book.

Nights were early as we were exhausted
from the sun and activity...we knew the
mornings would be early, cuz we had the kidlets.

The highlight for Tatum was meeting Oceanis, the 
dolphin. And her baby-girl, Nami.

I didn't bring one souvenir home this trip.
Just these pics-they so kindly charged me $69 for.
Nice of them, huh?
Mexico has marketing down pat and
it was good research for this salesgirl.
They certainly aren't afraid to ask for the 
business there....if I pulled some of
their sales tactics, I would be the grossest
saleswoman in los Estados Unidos.

Turner was a bit young for the experience.
He sat on the side and asked me 37 times
when it was time to go to the water park.

Clearly, a live dolphin that let you touch them
and kiss and shake hands was more of a miracle 
to me and his sister.

I cried at first touch, and just cuz it makes me
so emotional still, I will include a pic of me,
without a lick of make up on, for your
viewing pleasure..wink, wink.

Gosh, it was cool and it was on my list.
However, Tatum won't be satisfied.
She knows if she gets bigger,
next time she will get to ride them 
or be a dolphin trainer for a day.

And that's what life is to me,
making your kids happy within reason.
Not giving them everything they want,
but enjoying the pleasure of
their happiness, watching them light up at
what the world has to offer, and
always being kind to others wherever you may travel.

I'm a blessed girl.
I'm thankful.

I love dolphins too.
