May 21, 2016: He still rocks my world!
"May the only thing that grows old in our marriage be the two of us!"
15 years to Golden! Say what???????
|Mr. & Mrs. Brett McNeill|
|The view from our room at the Omni Resort|
|This is how The Goode's spent the day leading up to the wedding.|
Don't say that we don't know how to have a good time.
We even order in room service for lunch. LOL!
|My sexy wedding date. He's still got it!|
|Naiz and Brett's reception venue had an amazing view of the salt water marsh.|
|Rosa and I riding down A1A in the back seat with the top down |
and sunshine on our faces.
|Sometimes you have to be careful where you take a Camero. LOL!|
|Jim and I at dinner our last night in Mexico...it was the only night we left the house for food! We were so spoiled by Mairea.|
|Oh, how I miss this view in the mornings.|
|Jim and I chilling by the pool.|
|And here we are all together|
|Robin, Fonda, Stacy and Lonnie at Alux|
|Posing at Senor Frog's before heading out to board the plane|
|Three hours later and they still hadn't taken off due to low cloud cover. |
They finally called it just before the four hour mark.
Due to the weather, no more skydivers floated over the pool during our visit.
I guess they will have to save that adventure for next year.
|Baby Dedication at Wilcrest Baptist Church.|
|The speakers table where my dear friend Cynthia sat with her guests for the day which included her daughter-in-law and granddaughter. I just loved the garden party feel of this quilt (a gift from Donna) and decided that the table needed to look like a garden.|
|This was my table - set for four with Grandma Fulton's magnolia china. Bri joined me for the celebration and we had a wonderful time with Marla as memories of my grandmother flooded this table of magnolia blossoms.|
|I can't remember the name of the marina we set out from...but I do remember that it had something about Pelican in it's name!|
|My honey watching the shoreline grow smaller on our way out to deep waters.|
|First fish on! Jim called Lonnie to man the pole and she fought and struggled until she didn't think she could do anymore. Thankfully we saw him near the boat and told her it was almost over because she was just about to hand over the pole.|
|Isn't he gorgeous? An 8' sailfish! And yes, her face in this picture is priceless!|
|But she was all smiles once the battle was over, the fish was landed, the picture taken and the sailfish swam off to give another angler a run for their money!|
|Me - watching the waters for more sails.|
|We didn't hook another sailfish. But I did get to pull up this beautiful barracuda.|
|The most memorable catch of the day was John's. His bait lured in a nice one which became the bait for a BIG DADDY 'cuda. He nearly landed them both. In the end he pulled out the remains of his Amberjack.|
|We all caught something for the day. Fonda (barracuda), Lonnie (sailfish - released), Jim (Amberjack), Albert (red snapper) and John (Amberjack head)|
They picked out their own beach house rental!
|The Winning Team|
Brian, Thad and Derrick
(Yes! They have their own trophy! How fancy!)
There is some good eating in that day's catch.
|Out on the water|
|Derrick won a medal for FINALLY landing a fish!|
It was an fete that took a few years...and makes for some great stories!
|Wade fishing in 'The Hole'.|
|All we had to do was pay these guys $60 each and collect our gear.|
|This is our before picture. Can you tell how scared we are?|
|And off we go!|
|We were high! |
And I was hanging on for dear life!!!
|We didn't see them dip anyone else in the water the whole day. |
I think the captain just liked hearing us scream.
|Our After picture. |
We were so stinking proud of ourselves and filled with adrenaline!
Stacy, Albert, Lonnie, Robin, Me, Jim & John
Before the Adventure began.
|Jim and I before ascending the pyramid.|
|I made it about halfway up. I took this picture of Jim as we were climbing and started feeling very nauseous. I decided that it may be better for me to take myself down than to pass out and roll down. Jim pressed on to the top.|
Stacy, Robin and Jim from the top.
Photo by John...they are the only three that made it up.
|It's hard to pick them out, but I snapped this picture as the crew were descending.|
Jim's fish spa at the Cantina. The picture I didn't share here (but that I sent to our employees on Facebook) was of him on the telephone WORKING while getting his fish spa treatment. I threatened to throw his phone in the spa...but it was in a Lifeproof case so it wouldn't have mattered.
|Me and the spicy jalapeno in front of our lunch stop.|
