Trujillo Family Vacation

Last week Poppy took all 18 of the ENTIRE Trujillo family on a week long cruise to the Caribbean. It was not hard know that we were all with the same group in our matching spiffy new shirts.

My favorite Stop was Libadee, a private island off of Haiti.

The kids were just able to play, play, play, in the water for hours.

Katlyn made a beautiful sand Mermaid.

We had a nice line up of fine looking men, and a Katlyn, with some fine looking beach bods.

Next stop was Jaimaca. Love the Jaimacan people.

Then came Grand Cayman. We loved snorkeling and swimming with the sting rays and all of the underwater creatures of the crystal clear Cayman waters.

Callie wanted a Mermaid, but it turned out that after Katlyn decided that the redheaded green mermaid was her favorite, Callie had nothing to do with the blond pink mermaid I had chosen for her that matched her room perfectly. I did not realize this until I took the red headed doll away, and she teared up like I had broken her little heart to pieces. Needless to say, we got her the redhead doll, which she still loves.

Next came Cozumel, an island off of Mexico. We were so blessed to luck out with free tickets to the Mayan ruins, from 2 sweet women who were unable to get a refund.

Ragnar 2011

From top left to right: Timmy Boy, Brennon, Big Tim, Brennon, Becky, and Adam

Last year my brother-in-law's, Brennon's, accounting firm decided to put together a Ragnar team of accountants from the firm, but funny how things turn out... Only 3 people from the firm actually ran, and the rest was filled by family, friends, and (ha, ha, ha!) a whole bunch of Mormons.

But that's okay... Timmy Boy and Big Tim fit right in. We had a blast running around 200 miles of relay together, driving, getting hardly any sleep, and snacking on goodies that Amber got for us. There were 12 members total with 2 vans with 6 runners. We were Van #2.

We lucked out. An old friend Calob Boone joined our group with his fiance, Jenny. She is a sweetie and a half and was kind enough to be our designated driver after working a night shift and getting only 3 hours of sleep.

Below: Jenny and Calob

Exchanged took place by slapping a cool little band on the next team memeber. And yes, we ran through the entire freezing night.

But lack of sleep, freezing weather, and running many many miles did not take the smile off these boys. :)

And Finally! after 2 days of running... We made it!
