Thanksgiving 2007

Last year for Thanksgiving we went to Zihuatinejo Mexico with my family. It was so much fun and the most beautiful place I've ever seen in my life. It's a little fishing town in southern Mexico. One of our favorite things to do was to go down to the town each night and watch the locals play basketball and volleyball while eating ice cream ( we love Mexican Ice Cream!) We spent eight days there snorkeling, surfing, chilling on the beach and EATING. We couldn't believe how yummy the fresh sea food was there. Even the Chinese food was ten times better in Mexico! One of my favorite memories was watching the locals release baby sea turtles into the ocean in the evenings... They were so dang tiny and cute! I hope to be able to go back one day!
Brian and I at our favorite restaurant "Elviras" they had the best Coconut Shrimp I have EVER had and pretty decient Peach Daquries (virgin of course) It was hot and we were sunburned!

Brian and my brother Dallan watching Volleyball sippin some Fanta'

A view of our hotel from down the beach... it's the one above the sail boat.

Brian in his vacation shirt at our hotel.. One downfall to our hotel was that it was on the side of a mountain so there were stairs everywhere! There were 200 stairs from our room to my parents.. It was a hot and sweaty trip to say the least!

Our favorite pizza joint in town... I CRAVE MEXICAN PIZZA!!! It's totally different than here!

Our pool at the hotel.. Overlooking the ocean

The first night we were there, we were walking back to our hotel from dinner and it was dark. When all of the sudden in the moonlight we see a figure of a crocodile running in front of my husband.... It coundn't be a croc could it? YES IT COULD... There was a crocodile reserve on our beach!!! A little freaky... They like salt water and fresh water... Who knew?

I got to hold a baby Crocodile... It was crazy!

The board walk at Meduera beach

These are some of my favorite flowers from our hotel... Flowers like this were EVERYWHERE!! These are just a drop in the bucket compared to how many different varieties there were...

Blake in a tree at our hotel... It was so beautiful
