Thank you so much for your condolences and for the offer to refund the ticket; that is very kind of you but even if he indeed has to miss out, please keep the money----it is for the KIDS after all!!!!!

As it stands now, my husband just booked his flight home from Cuernavaca & will be arriving to Phoenix on Saturday night. He will then pick up his car at the airport & drive down to Gila Bend to catch a shuttle to RP (He can't drive his company car over the border :-(. Saturday will be a long day of travel for him (2.5 hr bus ride + 4hr plane ride + 4 hours drive to RP including a nasty shuttle) so I will be in RP already & have everything ready to go for Sunday morning (including all his cocktails for the day :) so all he will have to do on Sunday is wake up, get to the port & RELAX on a beautiful boat all day!! Our anniversary is Monday so this is PERFECT!!

As far as the fishing trip goes, he will be back other weekends in June & he can embark on his fishing expedition then. He may decide to include the family or decide to leave us behind but I want it to be what HE wants & sometimes a boys trip can be more fun :). I will let him talk to Barb on the boat on Sunday (if that is OK?) for more information about boat trips & that way he can choose exactly how he wants to spend his Father's Day fishing trip :)

I will keep you posted as to whether or not Sergio (my husband) will make in time for Sunday's trip but please count on my son & I for sure & plan on keeping the money for the kiddos if he can't make it in time! Looking forward to meeting you all!!

A pot-luck sounds like a blast & while we would love to come, I think it may be best (for everyone) if I get my little guy to bed early the night before the big day on the boat! He will have missed a nap the day prior due to traveling & NOBODY wants to spend the day with a whiney kid :) I saw the update on the boat change & I am not sure if the new boat has a room for him to nap in like the other one did? Not a big deal though as he can sleep almost anywhere (even in a closet). He is terrible about going down if there is action around him though---even at three, he never wants to miss the party!! I probably really need to utilize the time after he goes down for the night to get unpacked & organized. Those two things that are not as easy when he is awake! Thank you so much for the invite though & have a GREAT time!! Hasta el domingo!

There's no boat change... we are going on the ABOUT TIME... who said there is a boat change..?

There is a completely different trip going to the island on Saturday June 2, and I was asked to go along to be the onboard DiveMaster, but as I said that is a completely different trip and has nothing to do with this charity event for the schools...

OMG, you just have to ignore me; I am such a dork!!! I just figured out what happened. I was clicking on the similar threads links below i.e.:Memorial Day Weekend Bird Island Trip NOT REALIZING THAT THEY WERE FROM DIFFERENT YEARS!! I saw the videos of the "Pacifica" & its bedrooms & remember thinking how great that would be to have a place for my son to take a nap----(and for Mom & Dad to have some kid free time). Soooooooo when I saw that we were taking "About Time" & I thought there was a boat change to accommodate fishing. Again, I am going on very little sleep & have barely seen my husband for the last month, so I am barely holding it together lately!!! Soooo sorry about the confusion I caused.

This will give you a laugh though----I told my husband that you guys changed boats because you knew he was wanting to try his hand at fishing. I knew that wasn't the case but he because he is making such an effort to get to RP for this trip, I thought it would make him feel good! OK, so that is between you and me (and this whole blogging community) right??

OK & lastly, before I go and do something stupid again, can you give me an idea of where Safe Marina is?? Old Port?? You can add directionally challenged to the list of adjectives I have given myself in this email.

THANKS!!!

Not a problem Terace... I hope your hubby can make it... and there is a king or queen sized bed you can put your son on if he will be sleeping... Safe Marine is pretty easy to find, but if it will make it easier we can come to where you are and bring you a map, we do it for all our fishing and sunset cruise customers so you fit into that catagory... so if you want to send me a private message and let me know where you're staying or give us a call we can set up a time to meet you and bring you a map...

Just a reminder

Hey There Maties

Tomorrow Sunday May 27th 2012, we will be leaving SAFE MARINA at 8:00am for Bird Island... Please be there between 7:30 & 7:45 so we can get your gear loaded onto the "ABOUT TIME"

Remember there is a $5 Parking Fee at Safe Marina so car pool if you want to save the $5 fee...

SUNBLOCK... SUNBLOCK... SUNBLOCK...

Don't forget your camera, the female sea lions may be birthing and there will be a lot of cute pup shots... Also remember to bring your own snorkel gear... You are welcome to bring your own kayaks if you have one, I will bring my two (one of which is a 2 seater) and the boat has two...

This is a BYOB & Munchies party... It will be warm I suggest you bring plenty of water, beer is fine but it dehydrates your body... There may be some left overs from Chari's PotLuck tonight (Saturday) but if you think you will be real hungry it's best to bring your own food, we will be out there all afternoon (approx. 8am to 4pm)...

If you think you may be one of those who may get sea sick take a
dramamine or meclazine tonight before you go to bed and tomorrow morning when you wake up, you want the meds to be in your system... if you wait until you get sick before you take it, then it will be too late... (you'll be laughing at the water) and sorry the boat will not turn around because someone is sea sick...

SUNBLOCK... SUNBLOCK... SUNBLOCK...

You are also welcome to bring your Music CD's or I-Pods to play, just be sure to remember you are responsible for your own items you bring aboard...
(please no Hip Hop, Rap or the real Heavy Duty singing through the nostrils Country, I will have my Heavy Metal to combate any of the fore mentioned types of Music)

sea U
mañana at the marina...

any questions call me
383-4963 or 602-324-9529
or Email [email protected]


Please Remember to Bring Plenty of
SUNBLOCK... SUNBLOCK... SUNBLOCK...
Let's have some Fun...
