Puerto Vallarta

Every year Jason's family goes on a big family trip. Last year I got to hang out with J when his family went to Hawaii and we were there for our girls trip. I was so excited when I got to go this year and am excited to continue yearly trips with the Pluims. It was so fun to be with the family and get to know them even better! I am so excited to marry into such a fun and loving family!! Mike kept us busy and full! It was such a great trip! It was a little too humid to lay out so I didn't get as much color as I wanted but it was so fun without all the relaxing by the pool! The hotel was perfect! Air conditioned and huge!! Thanks Grump and Colleen!! Sorry there are a lot of pics!!

Deep Sea Fishing

We went deep see fishing the second day. Let's just say I will never go again and neither will the other girls. It started super early in the morning, Jenny was being nice and brought food..bananas...guess they are bad luck to have on a boat, so us gals hurried and ate them all up....they became bad luck to us..... Jenny and Colleen both got super sea sick. I got a little queezy but slept most the time besides when I woke up in sweat puddles from it being so flinging hot!!
I'm glad I can say I went deep sea fishing but to be honest if I would have known exactly what it entailed, you couldn't have paid me to go. I thought it would be so fun to go out in the ocean, get some good rays, sit there talking to the family with my own fishing pole waiting for a fish to want my bait where I would real it in and be so excited to eat if for dinner. DEFINATELY NOT how it goes. The owners of the boats run the show you sit there for six hours while the boat is going the whole time with 8 lines out all at once attached to the boat. You don't do anything until a fish bites. Luckily one did and J got to get in the captain chair and reel it in. It was so exciting for about twenty minutes then I was bored again. I loved seeing how happy J was when he caught the fish, unfortunately it wasn't the best tasting fish and too big to take home so the fisherman got to keep the prize! What a day!!

6 am wake up!! but.....

this sunrise was worth it!

Waiting for a fish bite (doing what we do best)

Jason's darling sister Jenny and her boyfriend EJ

I touched it Grumpy!!

Yummy food and shopping!!

They love me more than J so they had him take the pic

Gotta love Mexico

The Pluim fam!

Canopy ZIPLINE!!!

we got to do the Mexico zipline! Jas and I hate heights!! So this was a big moment for us. The highest zipline was 750 ft high! 1400 feet long! NEVER AGAIN!! It was so fun though and we starting loving it after a few lines. It was nice and cool in the forest, not as humid as we were use to.
Momma Pluim loving it!
They said High knees so I had high knees. This really is me.

Grumpy went down backwards, superman style and things J and I would never do in our lives. NO FEAR FOR GRUMP!!

Can you see excited we are?

After they had a little petting zoo with MONKEYS!! I tried to convince J to let me take one home but it didn't work. tear tear! they were so cute and they ate baby formula and honey out of our hands. I WANT ONE SO BAD!!

Again NO FEAR GRUMP!! I think by his smerk he might be a little nervous....


I have always dreamt of swimming with dolphins!! I was so excited to hear that my soon to be sissy in laws shared the same dreams!! It was an amazing hour and a half that I will never forget!! First we got to meet the sea lions (I can't remember their names) we got a kiss on the cheeck (don't tell J but their kisses were much softer than his) I think I got slight tongue on my cheeck. After that great experience we got to swim with our dolphins. At first we thought we had to share with other people but no one else got the package we did so the three of us got the two all by ourselves!! We felt like little girls on Christmas morning! SO FUN!!!

Petting the seal lionthe sea lion doing tricks for fish (stinky stinky) Me petting one of the dolphins (Their names were Bell and Tritan)

See happy as Christmas morning (Rach playing around with a dolphin)

Rach about to be lifted up by both dolphins by the feet!! It was so fun! We are waiting for more pics from Jenny of me being lifted high in the air by my feet with their noses!! SO FUN!!!

Tritan hitting on Jenny. He moves fast!! First base kiss happened within minutes!!

Dancing with Bell and Tritan! Shake it like a dolphin! shake it shake it!!!
Jason was so JEALOUS he had to ride the fake dolphin after he saw how much fun we had!! His dolphins name was Pete!!


Jason ate this!! The whole thing!!! For those of you who don't know my husband to be is THE PICKIEST EATER!!! He will not eat any type of vegatable except pea's and corn... So to eat this Pico.. UNBELIEVABLE!!! And to top it off he squeezed LIME all over it!! Again if you don't know J does not eat fruit, except oranges. I had to document it so close friends and family would believe me!

Last pic in Mexico...tear tear!!!
