Back from Mexico!

Hola! We are back from our Mexican adventure! And what an adventure it was! The hotel we stayed at was all inclusive, and the food was yummy! You go on a diet to get there, then you have to go on a diet when you leave (I heard someone say that at the pool, and stole it)! The water, the sand, the weather...just beautiful! Miss Allikaye did a fabulous job! Despite us bringing all of her bedding, familiar blankets, toys, etc...she wanted to sleep with her mama the whole time! I didn't mind a week of cuddling with my bebe! And she L-O-V-E-D the beach and the pool...definitely her daddy's baby! She just screamed with joy running in the sand and was so brave in the water! I see many more beach adventures in her future!



Here we are in the awesome hammocks...these are the images I will have in my head when I need a nap!
The beautiful pool...
This is Matt performing his winning "jump" in the pool contest! All those peeps with blue and yellow swimsuits are the "activities crew." They became a little obsessed with Matt, hounding him to play every type of activity and game...I think they could sense that Matt is a true kid under that tough exterior! Oh, he also wanted me to mention that he won the ping pong championship as well! Hibiscus flowers...a favorite!
Allikaye and "pop"This is the path that runs through the hotel grounds... where all the iguanas are lurking!
There were so many new and exciting things for Miss Allikaye to look at - there was a lot of pointing and "ahs" everywhere we went! And like I mentioned...iguanas...lots of them!


This is a lizard that Matt caught in our room...
I wouldn't go to sleep until he captured that little fellow!
Here's Allie at the airport...saying "ba-bye" to every plane she saw!
It's always fun to go on vacation...but it's so nice to come home...
even though it is snowing outside right now!
Ole!

Hola! Welcome back! Your trip looked like it was a blast. Fun that your daughter's room is surfer girl too. I thought that Halley would be surfing by now... instead she is a girly girl who hates to get her face wet and prefers princess dress up over anything sporty. When Lucy was born she asked if her baby sister could have her surfer room and if I could paint her room pink and glittery. Lucy will be our surfer instead. Did you get my Bible verse email? My computer has been wacky.
Have a great weekend!

Hi,
I sent it again and from my hotmail too... it is lost in space. Sad! Check your junk folder, lots have been ending up in mine lately, even from my friend.
Have a great week!

What a blast y'all had!! I think I could have stayed in the hammock the whole trip. Glad you made it back safely.
