Cruising, Cooking, and Fine Dinning

In choosing what to do while in Cozumel, choice a cooking class!  Oh what a blast that was!   We cooked a little, drank a lot, eat , and drank a little bit more. 
We also were invited to join the Chef's Table Wed. evening.  That was an amazing fun evening, with wonderful memories!  This is an event we encourge everyone to try to attend!  While it is hard to really write what we did, I will let the pictures do the talking!

Cruising, Monkeys, Pirates and Marriage

So our second stop was Roaton,  Hondrus.  This was our shortest day out.  We headed over to a park to see a few monkeys, pirates and birds.  With a few lizards and bugs mixed in we headed off on our little adventure.  We braved a rope bridge and after a fun time out, decided to head back to the ship for on of those shore special massages.  While we had monkeys on our back we took time to relax together and enjoy life!

Marriage, Ruins and Cruising

For those that did not know, Dan and I took a well need cruise last week to the Caribbean.  With 6 kids in the house, it is not always easy to find the time to spend with each other.  So a couple has to make time, carve it out, to make sure that the marriage is strong.  And while it was hard to be away from the kids, we are better for them when we come back.  It is certainly something that we will continue to do, while not always a week at a time, a weekend or overnight here and there, just to be able to talk with out the other distractions around us- kids, bills, house cleaning, schooling, church, foster care-to just talk, reconnect, and sleep.  Yes that is right, I sleep most of the first day on the cruise ship.   But by the end I was refreshed and ready to go.   
So our cruise was from New Orleans. Two days before getting to out first stop Belize.  I enjoyed learning about Belize.  We took a tour to see a Mayan Ruins.  It was pretty cool.  Our bus tour took us through a lot of small Belize towns.  Very run down, but the people has such a positive spirit among them.  Here are some .

Yes, I found the the lack of railing on top and a fear in heights, I only went so far up!  But it was high enough to see the beauty of God's world!  Our next stop is Roaton...
