August in Pictures... Part 2 of 2

Up next... PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO!!! April and I went for a wedding and managed to squeeze in lots of fun! Salsa lessons, outdoor adventures, shopping on the boardwalk, beach time and plenty of margaritas and free tequila shots!!!! Here are some pics of the city... the ocean was beautiful, the people were so friendly and the city was quite an experience in the way the homes were constructed on the hillsides and in the mountains - much different than what we're used to in the US...
The highlight of our trip was the Vallarta Adventures - Outdoor Adventure!!! This was one of the most exciting things I've ever done in my life! Check out my Spaces video module for a video summary of what we did over our 4 hour day - canopy runs, mountain hiking, donkey rides, waterfall repels.... you name it - we did it!! I would recommend this to anyone who can handle it - its very strenuous and definitely qualifies as a work out!
We stayed at the Dreams Resort... which was absolutely wonderful. The staff was GREAT, the all-inclusive activities (and drinks) were plentiful and the beach.... well, the pics speak for themselves...
Now, after the vacations and holiday have passed, its time to settle into real life..... and save up for the next trip!!!

August in Pictures... Part 1 of 2

It seemed as thought the month of August was one LONG vacation for me... September feels like torture :-)

I took a trip to Toronto to visit my baby cousin Elle - she's so gorgeous. Seriously, she's the most beautiful baby I've ever seen in my life. Its rare that newborn babies look so pretty - but you can tell, even from the "just born" pics that she is a girl, and that's amazing to me. She's not even 2 months old yet but its growing so noticeably fast! Check out some pics of her over her first month of life... she's always camera ready!

While she wasn't very entertaining just yet, her 3 year old brother kept me entertained and educated (and tired)...


Next up - a family reunion that included a dinner on the Princess Boat Cruise (where I ran into some of my line sisters who were celebrating a class reunion on the cruise and snapped the pic of the Detroit Renaissance Center/GM Headquarters shown below)....


....followed by a quick trip with the girls to my brother's Signature Saturdays event at the exclusive restaurant Sweet Georgia Brown in Detroit. Hot venue and even hotter party....
