Daniel funnies

Here's a little background so you'll understand the videos. Paul likes to make up songs for anything and everything. And you thought that he was just a percussionist. No, he is a multi-talented musician and composer! ;-) Daniel likes to go for car rides, and Paul was getting him ready to go so he made up what has now affectionately referred to as, "The Car Ride Song." Ever since then Daniel often breaks into The Car Ride Song. That will help you understand the other video a little more.

Daniel got a cap gun for Christmas - just look at what the girls taught him:

I know, I said I wasn't going to do this but since I'm not really packing I have to do something! I should be packing, but I can't bring myself to do it!

Here's a quick synopsis:

1/7/09 - flew to Tampa, stayed at a Sheraton where we had to change rooms at midnight because we found bedbugs in our room
1/8/09 - boarded ship, to find out that we were on a floating combination spring break party town/casino. Paul narrowly avoids entering an elevator that a drunk has just urinated in.
1/9/09 - Day at sea. Came down with a horrible head cold
1/10/09 - arrive Cozumel, board a ferry to the mainland, take a bus to Tulum to see Mayan ruins. It was SO hot and humid. Leave Cozumel that evening.
1/11/09 - Day at sea. Almost step in more excrement in the stairwell.
1/12/09 - arrive back in Tampa, debark, go to Aquarium, fly home.

In spite of the above mentioned unfortunate events, I really did have a good time. The people we were with from Paul's office were so much fun! It was really nice to have adults to associate with. The staff on the ship were incredible, the food excellent, and I didn't get sea sick (well, not as bad as I usually do anyway). And our excursion to see the Mayan ruins was a chance of a lifetime. We didn't have anywhere near enough time to spend at Tulum, but our tour guide was fabulous and I learned a lot. Here are some pictures:

Happy New Year to one and all! Not that I have been particularly consistent with blogging in the first place, but I will most likely be MIA for at least a month. Next week Paul and I are going on an all-expense paid trip including a cruise to Cozumel, something Paul earned at work. I can finally say that I am starting to get excited about going now that I have found someone to watch the kids. The truth is, I got the travel bug out of my system a long time ago and I'm a homebody at heart, plus I get extremely sea sick. So the thought of going on a cruise doesn't hold a whole lot of appeal for me. But Paul earned it so I'm trying to be a good sport. So maybe I'll post some pictures from our trip after we get back.

Within the next week I have to get things ready for the babysitters, cook extra meals and freeze them, and pack for our trip. Then when I get back I have about a week to pack up my house, clean the house, and move. I'm a tad overwhelmed...
