Marley and Me....thoughts

BEWARE OF A MOVIE SPOILER! Not that you really want to was this show anyway, you will baul your eyes out.

So Bryce rented Marley and Me last night. Let me just tell you that I have very mixed feelings about this film. First off, let me remind you that I cry about everything. I cry when I see a dead animal on the side of the road, I cry at homeless commercials, I cry at random things sometimes, I CRY AT EVERYTHING. So you can imagine my surprise when I was blubbering (literally) like an idiot at a fake movie. It TORE at my heart strings. I loved the movie because I love dogs. My allie bear is my life and I adore her. It was so funny and cute until the dog got sick. That's when the first tear dropped. Marley couldn't make it up the stairs one day and I lost it. Next they throw at me him lying on the ground far away from home preparing to die. Then they say his stomach is failing; then Jennifer Aniston and her children are bauling as Owen Wilson, the father, takes Marley to the vet which they all know is for the last time. DON'T YOU WORRY THAT THEY SHOWED THE VET GIVING MARLEY THE "DEATH SHOT". I HAD TO WATCH HIS EYES SLOWLY CLOSE AND HIS BREATHING SLOWLY STOP! ARE YOU KIDDING ME??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What psycho director/producer decided to create such a thing?????? Don't get me wrong, it was cute at times, but I felt like I was going to pass out I was crying so much! Bryce said he hasn't EVER cried so much in a movie in his entire life! He was wiping tears away and I was SOBBING! The worst part, is after the horror was finally over I couldn't stop crying. I kept thinking about things that happened in the movie and would start a whole other crying spree. The only positive thing that I got from it is to remember how much I love my dog. She is so precious and like the movie says
"A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if your rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?"

I encourage everyone to go out and buy a dog. They make life amazing. Just don't see the movie or you will never want to feel that hearache one day.

Mexico cruise!

My family and I went on a 7-day cruise to Mexico. I have uploaded all the pictures but you know how blogs go and the pictures are so jumbled up, so forgive me for not having them in chronological order, but enjoy anyway :)

Here are our two waiters: Sarafin and Rolly. They are holding a flaming cake aka Baked Alaska. It was great. They were the most amazing people in the world. I want Sarafin to come live with me! He was so sweet and amazing!


Sarafin Dancing! He was seriously the best dancer!

Layni Downing her soup lol

The best mushroom pastry in the world!

Mario Kart Wii Tournament

Driving around the arch

There is a new thing in Mexico. There were these Skeletons dressed like humans. I know it seems creepy but they were so detailed and so cool! I wanted one.

Notice the skeleton dog on a chain

Typical Mexican Picture

View from where we were eating breakfast on the boat

The best onion soup in the world!!!!! I couldn't get enough of it

I love this picture of Bryce. We took a "taxi" ride back to the ship after being at the beach on Mazatlan. It was 2 dollars a person for a 20 minute ride in the back of this guy's truck. Mazatlan shirts=10 dollars Pina Coladas= 5 dollars Riding in the back of a Mexican's truck going 60 miles an hour while riahnna blasts from the front cab= PRICELESS.

Downtown Mazatlan.

Boogie Boarding at the beach

Amazing zucchini stuffed with onion stuffing and a bean cake

I should have turned off the flash but this was the most amazing chicken cordon bleu in the world!

Grapefruit, kiwi, and raspberry sauce appetizer mMmmMmmM

Now I am not a HUGE fan of seafood but the crab legs were absolutely wonderful! I adored them!
