Cancun!!

So we just got back from the best vacation ever! We celebrated our 3 year anniversary by taking a much needed trip to Cancun. It's been different not seeing each other much since Ryan has been in law school and I work 5 out of 7 nights in the week. He kept telling people it was our "get to know you again trip." Anyway, it was fabulous and I feel so lucky and blessed to be married to Ryan. He even out did himself and suprised me with pearls which was so sweet and unexpected. Here is a brief synopsis of our trip...

Wednesday- left the house super early but got to Cancun around noon. Checked in and when we got to the room they were waiting to pour us champagne or wine. You should have seen their faces when we told them we didn't drink. We seriously must have been the first and only people to tell them no. We spent the rest of the day at the beach.
Thursday- Room service breakfast on our balcony then shopping. Of course, more time at the pool and beach.
Friday- Spent the day at Xel-ha which is an eco-park (natural inlet of the ocean). There is tons of snorkeling to do in the warm, clear water with tons of fish. We also rode bikes through the jungle, floated down a river, cliff jumped, and got sunburned on our own private beach. The place is AMAZING and I can't wait to go back. Oh yeah, and Ryan got pulled over by the Mexican Police who we had to pay off to avoid a ticket.
Saturday- More pool/beach time in between much needed naps. Plus we got to try out our private jacuzzi under the stars.
Sunday- A long 3 plane rides home.

This was such a fun trip that of course went by too fast. It's nice to be home with our babies but I can't wait to plan the next one!

What a fun trip! I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves. We went to Xel-ha while we were there too and had a fabulous time. What did you think of the weird biodegradable sunblock?!?! Happy Anniversary!

Fun trip. Dan and I went to Cancun as our "Count Down to Kids Trip." It was a blast. I loved Xel-ha. It was so beautiful. Dan had his picture taken with a monkey and I had mine with a parrot. The guys taking pictures of us got mad because we took pictures with our own camera instead of buying theirs. And whenever we got a drink and said, "sin alcohol," the server would look at us and repeat, "sin alcohol?" They must not be used to non-drinkers there. It was funny. Glad you had a fun time.
