Baby Colt and his squeezable little cheeks.
A HUGE moth. I thought it was dead and I was really excited becuase I wanted to keep it and take it to school. It turned out it was a momma moth laying her eggs. Gross.
My sick baby girl.
Camden reading her Bible.
Reading and "discussing" dogs
Momma and Camden reading Mickie Mouse Club. She's flapping away just like Donald Duck.
She is going to be a book worm like her Momma!!
Reading up on horses!
A sweet picture.
Rocking her babies to sleep. She is already a good little momma.
Camden is showing Caden how her play mat works. She is going to be such a good big sister!
Meeting Laura's little Laney girl for the first time! What a sweety!
Camden LOVING the little splash park outside the restaurant! Sweet Cheeks Laney!!
It is a big secret why Molly is making this face, but know we were having FUN!!!
The girls minus Laura and Laney who had to leave early. We just finished stuffing our faces.
*Check Leigh Ann and Laura's blog for more pictures and fun stories from the weekend. Thomp and Molly are further behind than me!
Swimming with her favorite person!
Walking around the pool, trying to decide on the perfect spot to jump in.
Working on her swimming! Kick, kick, kick!
Jay and I in the main courtyard after our first dinner. They had a live band and some very talented martial arts/gymnasts people.
Jay and I before dinner on our last night. Funny story; the buffets had no dress code, but the "specialty" restaurants required men to wear long pants - needless to say, we were unaware of this stipulation. Jay didn't pack any pants. (even though I advised him too:~) So, luckily Sara had a pair of her baggy jeans that Jay was able to SQUEEZE (Jay asked me to stress the word squeeze) into. He wasn't thrilled to be wearing womens' pants and scowled each time we started to giggle about his newfound 'fashion sense', but he took one for the team so we could eat at the Japanese Restaurant - the BEST place at the resort. Even Jay said the food made the two uncomfortable hours he spent in womens' pants WELL worth it. I had a really good picture of Jay in the jeans, but it magically disappeared (hmmm.) This is the best one I have. If you look closely, you can see the 'girly' button front pockets.
Luke jamming to the music after dinner!
Jay and I on the last night in Playa del Carmen.
Luke and Jay striking a pose in front of the ferrie. This ferrie took us from Cancun to our next destination... Isla Mujeres. These two places were polar opposites. Playa del Carmen was very crowded and a hopping party place... Isla Mujeres was on the other side of the spectrum. Very quiet and authentic.
Waiting to board the SUPER FAST ferrie!
A view of the pool that sits right on the ocean.
Jay and Luke sitting on the edge of the infinity pool looking out at the ocean. Again...it was BEAUTIFUL!
A view of our quaint, little resort, Hotel Playa la Media Luna. (check out the link) There were only 22 rooms... a far cry from the resort in Playa del Carmen where there were 1,400 rooms!
Our room was the third floor balcony on the right... just below the palm tree.
Sitting at the pool.
Waiting patiently for our food. The pace of life is SO much slower in Mexico. So, if you are in a hurry, you're out of luck! We had to learn to sit back and enjoy ourselves.
Jay and Luke playing pool at one of the restaurants. The atmosphere on Isla Mujeres was SO relaxing.
Our bill after our first meal on the island... if you forget that everything is in pesos, you're in for a small shock when the bill arrives.
We rented a golf cart for a day and had a blast cruising around the small island. It was BEAUTIFUL. Amidst the beauty, there still remains several third-world characteristics. There were homes, more accurately described as shacks or lean-toos, with no electricity or running water and mats or hammocks for beds. Because of the absence of zoning laws, these shacks were often found next to nice resorts or beautiful million dollar homes on the beach. It was hard to believe that a country so beautiful could be so poor. It was a very humbling sight.
On a cliff (75 - 80 foot drop) overlooking the water.
Jay and I by the Myan Rocks. It was too hot to make the long walk down and see them, but we did take pictures from afar.
One view of the beautiful water of Isla Mujeres.
A small Bed and Breakfast called Isla Bella we found while exploring the island. It is owned by an American couple.
Enjoying a homemade pina colda in a coconut shell. YUMMY! The best drink of the trip.
Sitting in a small pool surrounded by rocks at the beach. The scenery was breath taking!
Boy were we right...they were an INSTANT hit!
Playing the maracas while sitting on her daddy!
Shakin' and Jammin' with momma!
Mowing... but still holding on to the maracas.
PARTY!!! Mommy and Daddy are hoooooooooome!!!
