Shammy, I'm working on the trip. Watching those WorryFree Vacations specials. As soon as I see one that crosses the 25th, I'll probably book it.

Susie, does that sound like a good date for me and Bill to come down?

All I can say is, I hope so! I'll try to have things (ahem) properly arranged by then.

I have no doubt...I've seen photos of her!! But, she said she'd like to have a bunch of hot guys to chose from! So, if we all three gather some up she can take her pick!

Haha! Nah, he's actually still married to my mom! She won't fly which is the reason he's never been on a plane or out of the country, but she got him a ticket to go with me for his birthday. Pretty nice of her! He really wanted her to go too, but she refused. Is she nuts or what?! He's not a drinker and is more into getting up early, running, etc. This trip is going to be so different than my normal trips! I'm gonna try to do things his way some! Gonna be hard!!

Won't fly?

Eeee gads! How the heck does she ever expect to get to paradise?

On that note, neither my Mom (who is no longer with us) nor my Dad has ever been on a plane!

And I think Dad should conform to YOUR way of life since your the chaperone this time...staying out late, drankin, dancin....it IS possible to be someone's Dad and act this way ya know. Just ask my husband!

That is great that you are spending quality time with your Dad . Get up early and watch the sun rise with him. Will be something you will never forget.

Yeah, I can't believe people won't fly. I guess they have no idea what they are missing if they've never been! I don't love flying and turbulence scares the hell out of me, but I gotta get there!! I just try to sleep the whole way or drink if I can't sleep!

Thanks, Rubio! I plan on getting up to watch the sun rise, but I haven't told him yet incase it doesn't happen! Don't want to commit to it just yet! It will be a great trip! He loves the ocean here. I hope I can catch his reaction on camera when he sees the ocean there!

My father is 76 years old and never had a chance to do a trip like that with me. He was in the Navy and traveled to Japan and China. But he is taking my son to Alaska this year. This will be the highlight of the year for him. I love to listen to him tell stories of his adventures. I only hope that one day I can share an adventure with him.

I've seen the sun rise many times...but always before I've gone to sleep for the night! Might be the case this time too! I like your idea, Shammy! I'm the chaperone!!

No offense intended. I think one must decide how to handle such situations as this...do my thing.. or do what Dad wants to do...in my case I would do what Dad wants as it is a first for him and something he will never forget.

I'm only there for a few days...I'm thinking I can burn the candle at both ends and do what we both want, right?! I can catch up sleep when I get home!

Rubio, you should plan a trip with your dad! How exciting that he's taking your son to Alaska! He sounds like a very special man!

Sarah, your are right...my Dad is a very special man...His day begins and ends with my children...they are the vibe that keeps him going...he constantly tells me how blessed he feels to have grandchildren. Time is precious.

Daddy goes to Mexico!

Sarah,

Rubio's nice post made me think of the time my husband and I took my Dad to Cozumel.

My Mom had just died 8 months before, and we stayed at the Intercontinental Presidente - where my husband and I had stayed every year for 5 years.

The staff all knew us and treated my Dad so specially - it was wonderful.

We were worried about him and the heat, because he was 70+, so we decided to take things at a slower pace than we normally would.

Well, that man was up at the crack of dawn, all over Coba climbing up the pyramid, scrambling over the ruins at Tulum (you used to be able to do that), jumping off the second story of the snorkel tour into the water with us to snorkel, and go go go the whole time.

Luckily, my husband and I were staying for two weeks and got to rest up after he left - whew!

You are going to have a WONDERFUL time and build memories for a lifetime.
... Just no topless sunbathing, wild drunken parties and "love connections" this trip I guess!

('Course if you are hanging around with Shammy, some of that might be unavoidable! )
