Oh man, it is so warm here

We're having lots 'o fun here in Cancun (maybe even as much fun as my folks and the girls). We just got back from a nighttime swim and TubaDad is already asleep. I'm feeling kind of peppy, myself, hence the quick blog post. The internet here is el stinko, so I'm not sure if I'll get all of the pictures in or not. Spent MANY hours here today (pic taken with TubaDad's blackberry because I forgot the camera card in the room). I think I can still see my backside imprint there when we walk by. I'm not really that white, it's just his blackberry washing everything out. Seriously!: Many hours My BFF Trisha is here and I couldn't be happier. Her hubs (Rick) works at the same company as TubaDad. Rick, Trisha, my old boyfriend, and I came to Cancun in 1996, can you believe it? My old boyfriend (who shall remain nameless) had kinda longish hair. And one day he snuck away from all of us and got his hair braided and beaded. It was horrible. Everyone called him Bo Derek for the rest of the vacation and our relationship ended shortly thereafter. Some folks say those braids were the straw that broke the camel's back. Heh. My sweet friend Trisha is here!! I think we've spent the entire time in bathing suits so far. We're really enjoying ourselves I didn't participate in this volleyball game, it was way to rowdy for me (those boys are crazy), but TubaDad sure had fun. The boys in their company volleyball game (it was quite rowdy) Oh yeah, we did get dressed once to go eat dinner. We have this neat grippy tripod, so we sort of hung it from a banana tree and snapped a quick pic. Self portrait (hung the camera on a banana plant) It's so humid that when we break out the camera it immediately fogs up and we can't take pictures. I guess that's why we don't have very many. Well that reason and the fact that it's hard to remember the camera when you're drinking mojitos and drifting around in the water. Quite humid but kind of a neat effect The pools are closed at nighttime, but it was so warm that we couldn't resist sneaking down for a late-night swim. Shhhhhh, don't tell anyone. We visited my favorite hammocks during the illicit swim. It's a good thing we don't have these at our pool at home or I would never, ever, be able to get out of them. It's so warm we went for a midnite swim (and sat in the hammocks some more) Geez, I just noticed that I'm in a lot of these pictures. That never happens. I guess that's just another thing that changes when the girls aren't around. (They're doing great, by the way, and so are my folks.) When I saw all those pics, I was tempted to delete them all and only leave up scenery shots or ones of TubaDad. I hate most pictures of myself, getting all hypercritical and picking them apart. Ugh. Allright, I'm backing away from the keyboard and leaving the post as is... Adios!

  4. Oooo...what a beautiful place and you look mahhhvelous! It's fun to have you in front of the pics rather than behind the camera. Those hammocks look amazing! What a great idea!!

    glad you you're having such a great time!!

    Oh yah, the girlies called last night to say they're having a great time and that Wela and BobBob seem to enjoy the garage. After all, Bandit pops by to visit them. Also, not to be concerned that they have built permanent steps up to the candy cupboard and are sitting on chairs on the counter feasting solely on sugar!

    Enjoy your trip friend!!

  5. I never once thought to use the excuse that the camera washed my color out or that it added 75 lbs. to me. Thanks :)

    Glad you're having fun.

  9. Looks like a lot of fun. Stay in the shade and drink lots. Sorry. Drink lots of WATER!!!

    I think all photographers hate pictures of themselves. Actually, I think most people hate pictures of themselves. So don't be so hard on you - and use the "washed out color" and "camera lens distortion" excuse whenever needed :-)

    How long will you be in paradise? And when are you going to set your parents free again?
