Love, Cars, & Fairies

Here is the update as promised J
Valentine’s Day
For Valentine’s Day we stayed home and made dinner & dessert from new recipes. We made a Black Bean  & Quinoa Enchilada Bake and Gooey Chocolate Skillet Cookie Cake and they both were delicious!

We also wanted to watch a romantic movie too. However, when we Goggled “romantic” movies we were sad to see what others considered romantic. Many of the suggested movies had story lines that included people in affairs that chose to go back to their spouses instead of run away with their new love.  How is that romantic?! To us,  true romantic movies express the excitement of two  people meeting and choosing a life together, the dedication of working together overcoming hard things, the devotion of remaining true & loyal through all times and seasons, and the commitment to cherish their marriage and relationship. We have begun search for great love movies :)

Big Blue

We bought a truck and we love him! We call him Big Blue and we are excited to take him camping & stargazing, to help others, and to use to tow cars to fix.

Trisha Trip
We also bought a new car, 2013 Acura TL named Trisha Lee. 

We flew to Cleveland to get her so we were able to stop in and say hello to Alisha at Purdue and Kambrala in Omaha (and got to try an authentic Runza). It was great to see them but wished we could have stayed longer with both of them! We were able to listen to Harry Potter books 2 & 3 on the drive back too.

Fairy Tea Party

Lexi, Kyla, Mom, Kristin, Emilee, Tracy, Grandma Baum, and Melissa went to Fairy Tea Party at the Provo Library. It was magical to see all the cute little fairies learning how to fairy curtsy, watching the dancing fairies, walking in the fairy promenade, and eating their fairy snacks using their fairy manners.

2014 Borget Family Mexican Riviera Cruise

We loved cruising with the whole Borget clan. We left out of Los Angeles and we sailed to Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. We decided to try a room with a balcony and we loved it! It was so nice to be able to get some fresh air, see and hear the waves,  and watch the sunrises and sunsets all from our room. While in LA we went to the Orange county swap meet, tried a new sushi restaurant, and strolled downtown Disney (the Lego statues at the Lego store were so cool).

We sat sail on the Carnival Miracle on Sunday afternoon. We explored the ship and ate our first meal in the dining room. It was fun to have Jack & Lexi with us too.

The next day was our first "Day at Sea" and we took lots of naps and played lots of games. It was also our first Elegant night at dinner. It was fun to have time to dress up and eat good food.

The first stop was Cabo San Lucas. We got on tender boats to take us to the shore. We had a great time walking around the shops and eating yummy tacos and chips and salsa at a restaurant on the pier.

The next day we woke up in Puerto Vallarta. We went on a bus tour with Mom, Jamie, Kristin, Lexi, and Jack. We stopped at a few places to take pictures and shop and even saw a school. It was humbling to see how poor some of the people lived. It was nice to be in a warm place, but it was almost too warm and humid for us. 
On the last stop, Jamie went bungee jumping. It was nerve-racking to watch him jump over the cliff into the ocean. Christopher wanted to eat some authentic Mexican food, but we settled for Dominos - we had to see if it tasted the same. Our last stop before getting back on the ship was Wal-Mart. It was mostly like any other Wal-Mart except for their meat & bakery sections. The meat was all laid out on ice and the bakery was so big! We bought lots of bread to take back with us to try.

The rest of the trip we played games and ate alot! We celebrated Lexi's 9th birhday at sea too. It was nice to relax and have fun and be warm.
