We went on our honeymoon on a cruise to Ensenada, Mexico. Here are a few pictures.
Our first night we stayed at the Anniversary Inn in Salt Lake. It looks like Ben got a little sunburnt!
It was so nice they brought us breakfast and the shower was a waterfall.

After the reception in Boise, we had a layover in Salt Lake on Sunday. We went to church on Temple Square and walked around.

This is Catalina Island. We rode boats called tenders out from the cruise ship.

We went to lunch a cute sandwich shop. Ben still has a red nose.

At the "beach" at Catalina Island. It's actually pretty rocky like the Oregon Coast, so they imported this sand.
View of our cruise ship from the island.

Palm trees. The weather was perfect, 70 degrees, the whole trip.

We went on a tandem bike ride around the island. It was so fun, but hard work!
Ben's amazing camera skills. Us riding the tandem bike!
A picture we bought of us in the Inspiration Dining Room (on the ship) on Formal Night.
In our cabin in the cruise ship.
On the bus to Mexico!
Barbed wire in Mexico... trying really hard to keep Americans out.
Basically sums up our Mexican cruise experience. Everybody drunk off the "Mexican water" i.e. Corona.
Off the coast by La Bufadora.

We found a secret spot with no tourists and people begging us to buy their stuff.
Entrance to the marketplace. Mandatory to cross through if you want to see the blowhole.
Mexico-- or should I say globalization.
Most homes were not this nice. These are for the Americans who retire here.
On the cruise ship eating our lunch feast on the deck. It was a 24 hour party.
Hairy chest competition. Ew, I think this guy is Matt Malone's cousin.

Family reunion horseback riding-Dillon randomly has his shirt off.
What a sight.

Movie #1- At the blowhole, La Bufadora
Movie #2- A "Native Mexican" dancer. Except we wouldn't give him any money so he stopped dancing.
Movie #3- Horseback riding at Moses' Ranch


  1. a. why is my blog not on your sidebar?
    b. are those pics of the reunion on your honeymoon post because you were actually STILL on your honeymoon at the reunion?!
    c. funny joke about Matt Malone.

  2. b. I thought about calling this post Honeymoon! and family reunion...
    but in the event of someone getting offended I opted for the one I now have, and decided people could "discover" that this post also had family reunion pics on it.
    c. I still think if matt was on that boat he would've won that contest.

  3. I like all the pictures and stuff, but the length of your blog reminded me of the length of my emails. Hmm.... J/K They were all really fun and insightful, I feel like I was on the honeymoon with you! What a party we had!
