Ensenada Cruise!

Archie and I did it! We finally made it on a cruise! It's very exciting. We got to go down with a lot of friends and made a lot while there.

We survived without Gabe for a few days and he barely did with us hanging out with Grandma and playing games! It was cute, though. Archie's mother made a little schedule for him so he could count off the days until we got home. Finally the last day was crossed off and he expected us to be there fast....we didn't get there until later that night and so during the day he'd start crying and going to the corner and he'd say: "Mommy and Daddy lost." So yeah, that breaks the heart strings...he also gets really freaked out if one of us goes anywhere. He keeps saying: "Don't leave me!" So it looks like we've traumatized him for at least a few months!

We stayed in Vegas the night before and cut the trip to LA into two days. We stayed at the Silverton with a fish tank!

We ate at the Claimjumper! Soooo yummy.

Our carpool buddies, Anna and Brian.

Jason and Talia, our other carpool buddies.

Just some fun things at a novelty shop we found on our way to LA!
Really "naughty" shot glasses!

We toured two vineyards. A mom and pop's and then a more formal one.

They had some really great wines and cheeses and spreads.

Local wine kitty! Meow!

Robyn, Lauren, Derek, and me!
Archie and I on the bus heading up to the Vineyard.

Our tour guide made a pit stop at a local but private bull ring.

I'm the matador and Archie el toro...

Does he realize the bull dies in the end?
Archie took some great pics of the valley.

This is at the more formal vineyard. Lots of big wine vats!

Huge wine vat!

Cheap and good! Great cheeses as well!

Our cabin staff made us lovely towel creatures!

Chillin' on the cruise ship at dinner.

Off the ship
I may add some more pics as friends make them available. They had a fancy night and Archie and I didn't get any pics of us. We looked pretty smashing. Also did some karaoking...Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! May have more pics of that as well.

It was a fabulous trip and we loved every minute of it while missing Gabe fiercely!


  1. It's good to get away from the kid, helps you be a better mom when you return! I need to start planning my cruise, can't wait.

  2. Looks like a blast. You're beautiful!


It really makes my day when comments are left since I know who is stopping by and checking in and I feel so loved and you will be my best friend for life!
