We're Back From Mexico

Jeff and I had such a great time in Mexico this last week.  It's so nice to be able to take time away from life and enjoy each others company without work and kids to worry about.  We left Noah with Jeff's mom for the week.  We're lucky she can get away and spend time with him while we were gone.  For the most part, I've never felt guilty leaving Noah while Jeff and I get away.  I feel every family who can, should. It's such a good way to reconnect and relax.

Although it was pretty wet and rainy most of the time we were there, we did get to enjoy one full day of sun and beach time which was really all I needed.   The rest of the time we ate way too much and spent most of the day not doing much which is exactly what we wanted to accomplish.  We did a couple of activities here and there, most memorable was paddle-boarding which was so much fun.  I'm convinced we need one for this summer on the lake.  It was so much fun.

We had some great long walks on the beach looking at other resorts and enjoying our alone time.  We're lucky that resorts just weren't that busy this time of the year so for the most part we were all alone.  One of the days we made sure to get to downtown Playa Del Carmen.  We took a taxi to the city and walked around for a couple of hours.  There are so many things to see and it was nice to do some window shopping.  I loved looking at the condos they have tucked back behind the shops usually covered by jungle.  It's such a different way of living.  If we would have won the Powerball we might have bought a little condo of our own. (we did not by the way =)

Our resort had some amazing food which we literally ate every couple of hours.  We ordered room service in the morning, then went to breakfast, had some snacks and then lunch and more snacks, and then dinner.  We ate dessert with every meal.  That's the way vacations should be, right?

One of the days the rain finally cleared and we made our way out to the beach.  They had the best secluded spots surrounded by foliage which was great because you felt like you were all by yourself... except for the server which kept offering us drinks which was amazing. The beach was quiet and smelled great.  Anyone love the smell of the beach as much as I do?  A salty beach always has a special place in my heart.

We we're glad though by the time we came home.  We really missed Noah.  I might have even shed a few tears mid way through missing him.  A successful trip all around.  We can't wait to go back and we would definitely recommend this resort.
