It has been a long time my blog readers. After my vacation home I last blogged about I was drowning in school work I had to get done before Jason and I headed to Mexico! We went on vacation to a resort in Mexico, south of Playa. We had such a wonderful and RELAXING TIME!! I have pictures to add and show everyone. We did not do much but lay around, sleep, eat, relax, and play a little beach volleyball. The beach was beautiful!!!! The water was aqua blue. So pretty. The first day we scoped out the perfect place for ourselves. It was right under a big palm tree so Jason could be in the shade, and I could soak in the sun. There was also a hammock connected to our tree that we laid in some. We just relaxed, slept on and off, laid out, ate, and got in the water! The second day we went to the beach in the morning, pool in the afternoon, and played a little volleyball. The third day went and got deep tissue massages in the morning--- RIDICULOUSLY GREAT! However, we were both concerned about that over our sunburns we had by that time. It did not hurt though. Right after that we went and ate breakfast and then headed to the sand volleyball court. We played with a skilled and good group for about an hour and a half-- jason and I both in t-shirts and shorts to protects our burned bodies--Ahh! We ended that day at the salt water pool which had an amazing view. One of my favorite afternoons of the trip.

We had a great time, just being away together, hanging out, talking, etc.. However, despite my amazing efforts to not get sunburned, it happened. I applied 50 block like every hour and a half and burned I still was. AHH to fair skin.

Oh well. Anyways, we then went to the Sug where we celebrated a late Father's Day with the family by going to Joe's BBQ in Alvin. We did some damage on all you can eat ribs. They were delicious, but seeing the carnage is quite disturbing!!! The next morning the boys went to play golf and us ladies went and shopped for maternity clothes for Jamsky! She only got a few items but they were adorable and flattering on her prego-self. That evening we went to Jamie and Jay's and Kayla, Lance, and Betho came over. We had a blast eating dinner, playing cards, and hanging out. The night could have only been better if the Codster had been in town:) We miss you buddy.

Sunday morning Jason and I left Sug and started to drive back to Abilene. We stopped in Temple where his sweet family had amazing tasting BBQ and food for us. It was a delicious meal and we had a good time. His cousins, Eric and Launa, and their girls were there. We had not seen the girls in a while and they seem so big. Anyways, it was once again a blessed week, this time Jason and I together, which makes everything so much more complete.

Now, this week I am in class everyday from 8:00-5:00 for a grad school residency session. It went well today. It was nice to finally put names with faces of the people we have been working with so often and closely online. We are going to be doing a lot of role playing to begin truly practicing all we have been studying. It is going to be a great learning experience. We also are getting alot of questions answered from the faculty and staff that we are now getting to see for the first time!!:) Woo-hoo!!

I will update with all the pics soon!
