Wedding Bells

Last Saturday we got to hear some wedding bells.. In the middle of our mourning period we had to celebrate with Jessica and Richard.. While my Mom Josefina wasn't there to celebrate with us in person, we all felt her presence...Jessica's wedding was a wonderful way to unite our family in positive way after all the crying and sadness of the week before..
Luis walks Jessica down the aisle...
While the mother of the bride, Violet, looked so proud and excited for her oldest.....
The Wedding was sweet..Those smiles were painted on.. They look so excited to be married..
The Gonzalez family was in their best and having a good time..
The Izguerra's were a fun bunch...

We all put our best foot forward to celebrate a special day for a special couple..
Wishing Jessica and Richard a lifetime of married happiness.
Big Hugs,

Ahoy Mickey!

In case you wondered where we were... We took a cruise.. a Disney Cruise...It was our first real family vacation.. Our first cruise ever.. I apparently don't have sea legs as I had to hold on to my chair and take Stay Calm several times.. Martin and Maya are apparently half fish..
Here are Martin and Maya inspecting our room.. We had a balcony and plenty of room to spread out..
It was a great experience and a real treat for Maya. She loved every minute of being in the pool, eating dinner with our wait staff who catered to her every need or whim and sleeping in.. The TV is playing Disney movies around the clock... we saw classics like 101 Dalmations and Alice in Wonderland as we dressed for dinner or after the shows.. The boat is a floating city.. Ours had several pools, running deck, gym, movie theater, show theater, 3 restaurants/buffets and of course all the Disney Characters..
The characters make their rounds on a regular bases.. Maya got to meet the princesses and Mickey after Dad so generously stood in line for about an hour....

We had so much fun we can't wait to set sail again...
