Preschool BBQ

Friday was Chloe's last day of preschool which was sad because she is going to miss her teacher Joan and the other kids so much this summer! Wednesday Joan had us over for preschool graduation and a BBQ. Three kids (the ones with graduation caps on) graduated - they are on to kindergarten in the fall! First the kids did the pledge of alliegence for us, then they sang some songs. It was fun to see what they have learned in the last 5 months. Joan gave each of them a book and then each parent got a scrapbook of some pictures she had taken of them at preschool on different days. It was such an awesome keepsake item because in it she had asked them things like "what's your favorite food" or "what's your favorite color." Two of Chloe's responses made Clay and I chuckle..."why do you love Jesus?" Chloe - "Because I do!" Such a Chloe answer! Then "what are you scared of?" Chloe - "I not!" I am SO thankful to Joan and all of the things that she has taught Chloe! She is such an awesome teacher - I can not say enough good things about her! Chloe's already looking forward to going back in September!

Pledge of Alliegence



This is my favorite picture of them singing
"If you are happy and you know it shout HOORAY...HOORAY!"

Last full day of our trip

The last full day of our trip we did it right and relaxed by the pool ALL DAY! Clay got his hotdog and I got my shrimp tacos, we had fabulous drinks in the sun, I mean really what could be better??!! Clay and I are so blessed to have Art, Carolyn, Luke and Danita in our lives because without them this trip would not have happened or been as fun as it was! Another fabulous year in Mexico making more memories that we will never forget! Thank you guys for a great time!


Yummy drink of the day;)

For our last night we went into Puerto Vallerta and met up with Chantel for dinner.
The mexican food was so yummy!



The END!

Rhythms of the Night

Wednesday we went over to the Grand Mayan Resort for breakfast and then hung out by that pool most of the day. Last year we did this as well. That pool has the lazy river and swim up bar. We took a few trips on the lazy river but I didn't get any pictures this year:( It was fun but Clay wasn't feeling the best that day so he headed back to the room for a nap while Luke, Danita, Carolyn and I went and got massages! The massage was FABULOUS!! It was 50 mins but I wished it lasted longer it felt sooo good! Clay rallied so Luke, Danita, Clay and I went on the Rhythms of the Night boat trip. You take this boat for 45 minutes over to this beach called Las Caletas. It is absolutely beautiful there! The buffet dinner was amazing and the show was pretty cool as well. The boat ride over was a little interesting - pretty wavy! There were some seasick people on the boat - thank goodness none of us! The ride back was really pretty at dark and it was fairly smooth so not as bad!

The boat!

Just a little windy!!

Las Caletas=BEAUTIFUL!!
