We're Back

We are back and 10 pounds heavier! Mexico was WONDERFUL! We had a fantastic time. Our flights were smooth and on time. The first day didn't end very well however. We went w/two other couples Luke and Lindsay and Matt and Ally. (college friends of Luke's) Matt and Ally's reservation was cancelled between Orbitz and/or the resort. (even though Matt had an email confirmation they day before from Orbitz) After 5 hours on the phone w/Orbitz and talking to "the" manager at the resort Matt and Ally had to take a cab all the way back into Cancun (over a 60 mile trip one way) and spend the first night. Our resort had no rooms open until Monday (the day they left). It was NOT good. On Friday, Orbitz found them a room at a resort down the beach w/in a 5 minute walk on the beach. Wasn't ideal, but atleast they ended up close. We haven't heard what will become of the situation, but I assure you someone, somewhere, somehow will pay for their trip (and more). That being said everything else was great. We really couldn't have been more "vacation-y" if we tried. We ate, slept, and layed on the beach or by the pool. It was nice to get away and have our only worry be when and where we wanted to eat! Our boys were glad to have us home, Maddie said we could have stayed longer and wouldn't have bothered her a bit! She changed her tune though when I said I would keep the tshirt and necklace I brought back for her since she didn't miss us that much!
Our room was the first one to the right of the pool. We just stepped out and could go straight to the beach or the pool. Only problem-sand! Sorry it's a little dark. This was taken close to sunset

View of ocean from our room. Just like the pics on the internet. Although my pictures don't do it justice. Can you feel the sun??
