After only a 2 hour flight from Houston, we land in Cancun - humidity and all. We decided to take our boys and Tyler's Mom Heather came with us too. We stayed in a beautiful Marriott property right on the beach with an oceanview. Is the water really that turquoise? It was amazing!! Here is what we did:
  • Ventured to the local Wal Mart to pick up breakfast/juice/snacks. Ate yummy tacos in their food court. They were like $1.25 for 3 tacos al pastor.

  • Enjoyed the beach, sun, sand and good drinks at our hotel

  • Visited Tulum and Chichen Itza - ancient Mayan Ruins

  • Connor held a giant iguana

  • Tried to keep Heather away from the locals selling Mayan masks
  • Took a boat to Isla Mujeres where we rode golf carts around the island

  • Went to church - yes it was all in Spanish. Good thing we had 3 Spanish speakers in our family that translated the meeting

  • Tyler and my brother Spencer body-surfed a ton (at night the waves were huge)

  • Jumped and swam into Ik Kil - a Cenote (underwater cavern) This was my favorite part of the trip.

Overall the trip was a blast and I could go there again in a heart beat. I love the sun :)
