Doors are for suckers!

So says this guy....


I especially love how he uses his seatbelt as a harness in case he were to fall out? Yeah...Not quite sure that will do it buddy. I think he'd be better off wearing it as a seatbelt. No? 

It never ceases to amaze me when I see the vehicles that are legally operable on Cancun's roads. I mean, this is hardly bad by Mexico standards, I just happened to have my camera ready to snap this shot. I am not sure there are any legal restrictions? Any one know? Who cares if a vehicle should be deemed salvage only. 

Safety, that's for suckers!

Taking the pig for a walk!

Yes, you read that right. Just when I think I've seen it all, boy was I wrong. I'm a gal from Calgary, Canada - home of the Calgary Stampede (worlds largest Rodeo). Farms all around, friends and family live on ranches, my uncle raises pony's and sheep. However, can I just say I have never seen someone walking any of their farm animals as they would a dog. I still find it odd when I see people walking their cats on a leash. Cats roam, don't they?

Well, I guess it was time for me to see a women walking her pig around the block in Cancun no less. Just in case you don't believe me, here's a little video for your viewing pleasure.

I guess the owners have had her for awhile. I also want to add that they do pick up the poop!! I was VERY impressed as dog poop is a big enough problem here. 

Has anyone seen this before? Is it as odd as I seem to think? Or am I the odd one? Either way, I found it so funny and pretty cute!! LOL!!

Tired, very tired!!

I know it's been a loooong time since my last real post, but I have an excuse...I'm pregnant, and tired!! It's truly inexplicable to those who have never been pregnant, heck I couldn't have understood prior to this pregnancy. I am at the point now where I am just tired all the time.  I push myself to do things, and I enjoy it but my feet are killing me at the end of the day. I want to nap but I don't allow myself to as I'm not sleeping that well at night. All you ladies who have been pregnant know what I'm talking about.

I left Cancun over a month ago now, and am in Calgary. Hubby and I are thinking I am going to stay put. Travelling is getting tougher for me, and I've actually been placed on modified bed rest. That means no flying even if I wanted to. Hubby has of course gone back to Cancun for work. We still aren't 100% sure, but if I can't travel for the remainder of the pregnancy then baby will be born in Canada!

Having the pleasure of biddiing adieu to the second trimester seems surreal. I can't believe I'm already 7 months. Sure I feel it, and I certainly look it, but it still feels too good to be true. That and I'm now starting to get nervous about the whole pushing the baby out of a hole the size of a dime. LOL. That freaks me out I'm not gonna lie. I have a c-section booked for medical reasons, but that can still change and I can have a vaginal delivery....Crap does that freak me out. LOL.

I was going through some photos on my camera and realized I have so many great blog posts for you all. I need to take some time and write them up. Promise I'll get to that this week!! I promise, really great pics I am sure you'll enjoy :)

For now....Why don't I share a pic that is OH so close to my heart.
