Man did we have an exciting week. Riley and I left on Saturday morning and drove to San Diego. My dad was taking us on a 4 day cruise out of San Diego. It was 12 people that went. The list goes Dad, Carol, Josh, Me, Aundrea, Bubba, Zac, Maggie, Riley, Tara, Emily and Maylinn. What a group but it was a lot of fun. On Saturday we got to San Diego at about 2 and headed straight for the Mission Beach. Some of us did the roller coaster in Belmont Park and the others did some fast ride you sit in including Riley. All I was thinking is he was going to barf, cry, or just freak out. He insisted he wanted to do it so he went on it. He had a blast and didn't do anything I was afraid of except have a blast. I was so proud of my baby boy for going on that crazy ride. We then went to the Ocean. Riley loves the ocean it was just putting our feet in the water because we didn't have our swim suits and then Riley was wet all the way to his shirt. What did I expect when we are at the Ocean. We were staying at a hotel on Saturday night and getting on the cruise ship on Sunday at 12pm. We were all getting so excited!!!!

Sunday came around and we were headed to the cruise port. It took a while to board we got on and headed straight to the buffet. All you can eat food the whole cruise that's not going to be a good thing:-) We were making 2 stops while on the 4 day cruise. Catalina Island, CA and Ensenada, MX. When we got off at Catalina Island we walked around and Grandpa got us tickets to take a submarine ride to look at he fishes. It was so much fun. We then were in Ensenada the next day. Not much to do we got off looked around shopped and then back on the boat. The next day was a day at Sea. We eat swimmed and eat some more. In the evening there was a dance off contest. It was fun and much to my surprise Riley was out there dancing in a big crowd with people actually watching him. I'm just amazed at how much he's coming out of his shell and becoming a mature young man. And every night on the boat there was family karaoke and on the final evening Riley had the courage and went up and sang with Maggie and Emily Honky Tonk Badonkadonk (sp?) I was so proud of him!
We had a great time and can't wait to do another cruise. Thank you Dad and Carol for taking us.

Sneak Peak

I had to get Riley a nice outfit for the formal night on the cruise. He wanted to try it on before the cruise and all I have to say is handsome.

It'a little blurry but you can see the cuteness!!!

I forgot

While we were at the doctor today Ryan got weighed and weights 17lbs and 6 ounces. He looks big to me but I guess thats still small. He's be my petite baby :-)

Busy week...

Sitting up in the bathtub!
8 months old

On his knees getting ready.

A great big brother putting him to sleep :-)

It's has been a crazy week. Riley and I are going to be leaving this saturday and going on a family cruise with my dad and the family. I have been trying to figure out what we need and think what were going to take. During this crazy week I started to feel sick on Monday, Riley on Tuesday and Ryan on tuesday as well. Not a good week to get ill. Ryan was up all night last night and that's out of the ordinary. So I took him to the doctor this am and he has an ear infection in both ears. Poor baby. Riley and I are on medicine and hoping we get better before we drive to San Diego this Saturday. We are excited but will miss Ryan SO much :-( He will be with his Dad in the nights and Nana during the day.

We had another milestone this past Monday. Ryan turned 8 months old. It is so hard to believe that my baby is 8 months old. He is sitting on his own very well and is starting to pull up on his knees but falls to his tummy and gets mad. I'm in no rush to get him crawling because that just leads to walking (scary)!

Well post about our cruise when we get home!!!!!
