…apparently really does stay in Mexico, considering our trip was five months ago and I still haven’t shared pictures from it yet!
Back in January, G and I took our first vacation together since becoming parents, leaving Kate at home with Grandma Pam. We spent five days in Cancun with our friends Todd & Robyn, and had a great time…although I’ll admit I was missing Kate pretty badly after the first two days. Thank goodness we were at an adults-only resort! It would have been so hard to see other children and not have Kate there with us. I think we’ll either bring her with us on future trips or stick to shorter vacations for awhile.
Luckily the four of us were still able to have tons of fun between my tearful phone calls home, as you can see from these pictures! I should add, it was so hot and humid there that applying makeup or doing my hair was pointless. You’ve been warned.
Me & G:
Our friends Todd & Robyn:
The beachfront of our resort:
More beach. See the white canopies? Those are outdoor beds right on the beach–I was obsessed with them.
The buildings on the resort all had thatched roofs which were really neat. This was the main outdoor bar which also had swings around the bar (see the ropes hanging down?) for additional seating.
Me on one of the bar swings:
There was a tequila bar on the resort, which we gladly made the most of. When they offered us sombreros, I couldn’t resist. I’m a sucker for a sombrero!
G had to pose with this guy whose nickname was “Speedy Gonzales.”
Note G’s hand in this pic. The man cannot hold his liquor.
One of the swim-up pool bars (a.k.a.: our home away from home).
That’s my husband with the big coconuts. Oh yeah…and our drinks.
A group picture where 3 out of 4 of us are fairly sober; not too bad.
As you can see, we spent most of the trip drinking. Typical Wisconsinites!
