My little Cooch (Blayd Vernon Auxillou) enjoying a fabulous encounter with a dolphin off Isla Mujeres this week.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLAYD!!!!!
These photographs were taken at the Dolphin Discovery on Isla Mujeres in Mexico on May 30, 2012.
Dolphin Discovery is a "swim with the dolphins" facility.
Blayd is 10. His 11th birthday will be celebrated on June 13, 2012.
For years he has been asking to swim with the dolphins, ever since he first read about such a program while we were staying in Atlantis in the Bahamas about four years ago. Unfortunately, at Atlantis, the cost is/was $279 US per person and I / we could not afford it. At Dolphin Discovery, the cost is $79 per person, a much more affordable figure.
Besides the cost, for the past two and half years I have been in school. Life has been so hectic, that I have been unable to properly celebrate Blayd's birthday with him in a fashion befitting such a sweet and awesome little kid.
Since I graduated in May of this year, and my schedule has now freed up considerably, I wanted to make up for lost time.
Sooooooooooooooo, here they are .... his long ago birthday wish finally come true.
