To Read on the Journey

Saturday, November 10, 2007


We had great Jones family vacation in Mexico!

The kids loved playing with all their cousins, swimming, body surfing, snorkeling, giant sea turtles, and late nights.

The adults enjoyed lazy days filled with tanning, margaritas, chips and salsa, shopping at the marcado, playing 10,000 and speed scrabble.

Highlights from the trip
Watching the kiddos enjoy their cousins
Parasailing (uh huh, I flew!)
Cooking together -yummy garlic shrimp!
Counting freckles at bed time
Speed/travel Scrabble
Necklace shopping with Cindy and the girls
Giant Sea Turtles
Madonna makeovers
Being sung La Bumba at El Vira's
Dinner, a stroll, and ice cream with Michael (thanks to generous sitters- Nana and Aunt "Jennifuh")
Nana helping Emilie learn to dive
Gramps helping Josie swim
Noah's excitement boogie boarding

Hi - I found your blog from your sister-in-law Lindsey's blog. I had to comment for two reasons. First, I've never met another family that knows how to play speed scrabble. I LOVE that game! My family plays it all the time.
Second, I was really encouraged by the quotes on your side bar. Searching for God Knows What by Donald Miller is one of my favorite books, but it's been a while since I read it. I really needed to hear that quote again. So, thank you.

Looks like fun!! Thanks for sharing the photos and your highlights. Isn't it great just to see the cousins all love on each other? It warms my heart when I see my kids with their cousins - such a special bond. They will always have great memories of this trip together.
