Cozumel with friends and family

Carolyn and I were joined by Dan, LeAnn, Nix, Jenny, Stan, and Chrissy in Cozumel this past week. We faced a lot of rain and cold weather until the day that we were due to leave but still managed to have a great time! It was a bonus that ‘cold’ Cozumel weather was still upwards to 90 degrees warmer than it was at home 🙂

It rained for four of our five days but we did not care and enjoyed ourselves

Carolyn sent a picture to Mom each day to show that her boys were still alive 🙂

A few of us went on a snorkel tour

The nearby ships were fun to watch

We saw the ship that my parents and Stan are going on in the coming months…

It was so hard to leave on our last day with our first views of the sun

Christmas break 2013

I was able to take a good amount of time off this Christmas. We played games, video games, went ice skating, sledding, watched football, went to a game, shopped, spent time with family, and enjoyed a quiet new year. It was very relaxing to be home with everyone.
