Cancun - our trip in photos

We are back from Cancun (obviously)!
And we had a great time!

I have been busy trying to catch up on emails, blogs, etc, so I'm just going to do a summary picture post of our trip.

Here is the view from the resort where we stayed.

I totally love how the housekeepers would make little animals with the towels every day!
Sitting on the beach watching a parasailer go by
We went over to watch the sunset on the Lagoon and got eaten by a shark
Hubs tried to take a picture of us on the beach...he has a hard time smiling and pushing the button. It's that whole multi-tasking thing, yk.
And then some one took a picture for us
The little tiki hut that we lounged under every day just reading, drinking, and listening to the waves.


On the dock by the Lagoon at sunset
Alex was thrilled to discover that the local Hooters had the Auburn game on (along with the UGA game and the USC game). We, of course, had to sit and watch it. We met another Auburn couple in there (also from Atlanta) doing the same thing!
Me and the green gaucho. He was a real guy all painted up green.
We got up early two mornings to watch the sunrise. The sunrise and sunset are one of my favorite aspects of the beach experience.


So, there you go. That was pretty much our trip. Not too exciting, but we didn't go for excitement. We went for some R&R and a lot of togetherness...and that's just what we got!

We had a great time.

And another big THANK YOU to Grammy and Granddaddy...they made our vacation possible!

How perfect! I'm so glad you had such a fabulous time.
What resort did you stay at? My hubby and I love Cancun and went for our honeymoon and then again for an anniversary. We are always looking for nice resorts to stay at.

Ok, yeah, I'm pretty sure I need to book a trip to Cancun.

Yeah, pretty sure.

Heidi said...

WOW! What a beautiful place. I didn't realize the green man was a real man. I thought you had your arm around a statue. Very creepy. The sunrise was beautiful too. I'm glad that you posted pictures of your vacation, it's fun to see places from around the world. The internet is probably the only way that I will ever see them.

Rachel said...

Oh my gosh - that looks like a fun and gorgeous vacation! You look so relaxed and *pretty*! :)

heidi said...

I LOVE that dress you're wearing with the green martian guy. It's beautiful! Looks like a fantabulous time. I'm now green, too.
