Hola Blog! Did you miss me? We just returned from a nice long family vacation to Mexico. It was so much fun!
My goals were to:
- eat guacamole at every meal
- ride a zip-line
- relax and spend time with my family
I am happy to say that I achieved my goals! (*There was one night at an Asian restaurant where there was no guacamole, but I’m still going to count that goal as 99% met.)
Of course I took a million trip photos because that’s what I do.
I thought that I was really original to wear a straw hat to Mexico. HA! So did everyone else. The boys made a game out of “count how many people are wearing the same hat as Mommy.” We counted 9 before we even got on the plane.
This is where we stayed. It was so beautiful, I almost couldn’t stand it.
We spent most of our time at the pool. It’s hard to leave when they kept walking by offering fresh guacamole and drinks.
Littlest really embraced the good life.
We did get off of our butts long enough to have a few adventures, like zip-lining,
(That little blue dot is Biggest high in the trees!)
swimming in a cenote (Tom was the only one of us brave enough to jump in),
watching lots of cool shows,
and getting fish pedicures! (They tickled!)
Speaking of fish, we went to a little fishing village called Puerto Morelos.
They are known for their leaning tower.
The beach where we stayed was so clear and warm and white, a far cry from our familiar Jersey Shore.
Biggest spent his time building and demolishing sand castles.
Littlest spent his time following the ultra cool Entertainment staff guys around.
I spent my time applying sunscreen (obligatory pool selfie) and looking for coral.
Tom spent his time drinking cerveza and reading about Benjamin Franklin. (Seriously, didn’t I say that we are two peas in a pod?)
It was a great vacation and just what we needed after a very busy year of school and work.
I am so thankful that we were able to take the time and spend it together. Yay Mexico!
