Here is Rory hard at work!! Finally after 3 hours of using rollers, Rory went down to Home Depot and rented this spray gun! Well worth the money! It saved our arms as well as hours of unnecessary labor!
By the end of it all, we both looked like ghosts! I teased Rory that this was what we are going to look like in 50 years!
We can't believe that it has been a whole year already! How time flies!

The ladybugs flew everywhere! Rory had so many crawling on him! It was lots of fun!
Well, maybe we did better planting these pots last year, but I still think they turned out ok!
After that day though, Rory is no longer allowed to be anywhere near knifes! Smart as he is, he still managed to stab himself in the ankle while we were enjoying our day's work out on our porch! Rory insisted that I put this picture on...sorry for those with a weak stomach! It was pretty gruesome! Blood was everywhere! I'm just glad we were outside!

After the St. George weekend getaway, Rory and I decided to keep driving to San Diego and go on a Mexican Carnival Cruise!! We were already half-way to California and didn't want to go back to work in SLC so it just made sense!! It turned out to be one of our funnest trips together! The food was great and it was really relaxing!
The boat wasn't as bad as I thought it would be either! Our stateroom was very roomy and there were tons of things to do everyday!! I have to admit though that I did get sea sick. One would think all those trips to Lake Powell every year when I was young would cure all that?! Oh well, nothing a little Dramamine couldn't fix... Our first port-of-call was in Cabo San Lucas! We didn't plan any shore excursions, so instead we just hung out at this super nice resort all afternoon! Amazing food and great sunshine...well at least for me. Rory opted to rest under our own private cabana all afternoon drinking pina coladas (virgin of course).
Rory turned out to be quite the volunteer on the ship! Here he is with our cruise director Stew from down-unda during the very-excited horse racing activity, during which Rory annouced the beginning to every race with a creative hollar! I only wish I could have taken pics during the hypnotist where he was told to be Michael Jackson and dance across the stage to Thriller! It was hillarious!
Our second port-of-call was in Ensanada, Mexico. Rory rates this city one grade higher than TJ. It was pretty ghetto in town. We decided to venture off on a shopping tour to the famous blowhole, which turned out to be pretty disappointing! The shops were filled with people and and really annoying vendors! "Come buy a purse amigo...I'll give you a special price!" Whatever, everything was crap and totally a rip-off. So we didn't end up buying anything. Oh well. There's always TJ right?
