Laura has the pictures to prove we actually made it onto the ship, but this was our second night on the ship and it was fancy night. Here we are...fancy (Please note I am actually the tallest of the Freeze girls, I just don't wear super high heels..or horny shoes as my girls call them):Puerto Vallarta was our first stop on the cruise. Uncle Parry and Aunt Kris were meeting us there, but while we were looking for them, we found these friendly folk.

Catalina was entirely too much fun. After Laura, Mom and Megan got their medals, we hit an eariler ferry back to Long Beach. At this point, Mom was exhausted. This may have been the only time she was exhausted the entire trip.We made it to the parking lot, only to find that we had left the interior lights on in our van. Yikes. It was totally my fault, but Mom called her Canadian equivalent of AAA and there was a man there trying to sell us a battery within 15 minutes (not bad). We declined the battery purchase and were on our way after he jumped the van.

The first part of our Cruisecation was a trip over to Catalina Island to run a 5K together. It was SO much fun! We have all been training for this race for several months, so we were all excited to run it together. Here we are outside our hotel room before the race. We were all sure Mom was going to beat us all. She is speedy.The race went fabulously well, with Laura beating everyone! Megan was next, then Mom and then my pregnant self. Here we are waiting around until the medals ceremony. There was a morning race ferry coming from Long Beach that didn't make it on time for the race, so a second race group started out for the half marathon and 5K over an hour later than the original start. So, we had a lot of time to wait until the results came in.
Megan was 1st in her age group with a time of 28:28
Mom was 1st in her age group with a time of 28:48
Laura was 3rd in her age group with a time of 27:55
and I was 6th in my age group but I'm not sure my time (I just know I ran it under 35 minutes and 'ran' the whole way, which was my goal).
Here the ladies are waiting for their medals:

I apologize for not posting on my most amazing Cruisecation that I got back from about a week ago, but there are entirely too many pictures to choose from and I would need to spend some serious time arranging them and combining thoughts before I could realize a blog post on the subject...so it's not going to happen anytime soon. There are all sorts of crazy things going on in this Cohen household right now, but I'll just share some photos from this morning's race. Brandon ran in the 5K "Hares N Hounds' Race and the kids ran in the 1/2 mile kids race.You can really never stretch too much.

Wade turned 2! The girls practically opened all of his presents. We gave him Harry the dog, which he has been carrying around some.Wade really likes dogs, so we made his cake in the shape of his favorite pup, Bolt. I was going to try and recreate Bolt's face, but instead we just decided to put the piece of paper on top. The girls choose the candles to put in his eyes. Elle chose the Sheriff star and Bryn the cactus.
