When our kids left home to go off to college and Steve and I were back to just the two of us, even though we were sad, we were kind of excited too. We still get along really well and we just have fun hanging out together! So we decided that when it got cold outside we were going to do something spontaneous and fun and go somewhere tropical! We made our plans and booked our flights and today our little dream is actually happening. We arrived in Cancun, Mexico!
It was crazy trying to get ready to go. I had sooo many lesson plans and materials to get ready and it took me a long time. But it was all worth it.
Today our flight left around 10:00 and we got here around lunchtime. When we got to the hotel, we were welcomed with two complementary fruity drinks! Here is our hotel room and the view from our balcony....
It is very windy here and a little chilly in the shade, but it is GORGEOUS. They even have those beds on the beach!
We had some fajitas for lunch by the pool.
I am wearing a sweater because it is so windy, but there were lots of people in the ocean and at the pool swimming! In the sun it felt so nice.
Tonight our plan was to go walking around a mall near our hotel and then get some dinner and then come back and sit in our little den area and watch the Olympics. But they don't get the Olympics here!! :(
I'm really sad about that because we have been very into the Olympics and I was so looking forward to the women's figure skating tonight!
Oh well, we went out to dinner and had fun watching the women's hockey at the restaurant. Here we are at dinner at a very loud and crazy place called Carlos and Charlie's.
We are home now and have our balcony door open. I can hear the ocean and I don't have to get up early tomorrow. Life is good!!
