Anne Marie started her birthday with #8 pancakes and finished it off with Banana Cake!


Anne Marie celebrated her birthday at Incredible John's Pizza.



The top picture was taken in 1996, Anne Marie was a new born.  From left to right is Taylor, Angela Desi (holding Anne Marie) and David.


Below is the same group 8 years later.



For Thanksgiving we went to Cancun

Our hotel in Cancun


Our hotel was beautiful, the girls had a great time playing on the beach.



Shopping in Town


We went into town, they had a place where you can pose with some birds.  One of our favorite things we did in town was go to Wal-Mart.  To the right is Anne Marie pointing at a Coca Cola Christmas Tree inside the Wal-Mart.


Playa del Carmen


We went to Playa del Carmen to walk around.  The beach was beautiful and the town was fun to walk around in afterward.

To the right is Anne Marie, below is Paul and Angela, and lower right is Taylor following Paul down the beach.


Jungle Tour in Cancun


We took a jungle tour, we got to drive jet ski's through the jungle to a snorkeling area.  Below is Taylor snorkeling and lower right is Angela.


Chichen Itza


We spent the day at Chichen Itza.  We found the history fascinating.  Below is a temple that we were able to climb up.

Taylor being silly, our family in front of the planetarium, and one of the many iguanas we saw running free.


Isla Mujeres


We also took a day trip to Isla Mujeres.  On the island we went on a tour, Angela drove us in the golf cart.   Below, Angela, Taylor and Elizabeth held a reef shark.




We spent a day in Xcaret, it was very fun, we went snorkeling, swimming with the dolphins and just relaxed.




We spent our last day in Cozumel, Anne Marie NEEDED her hair braided and the girls NEEDED henna tattoos


And as always, we end the month with Angela's birthday.  She turned 17 this year.  I accidentally deleted the really evil looking birthday picture, so I had to substitute with the party birthday cake picture.


Happy Birthday to:

Anne Marie
