Viva La Mexico!

Hola amigos. We had an incredible time in Mexico! I have never seen Travis so relaxed...(I think the massages by the beach and reflexology massage at the spa had something to do with it!)

We enjoyed 90 degree weather, the beautiful Caribbean Sea, white sands, relaxing pools, good food and plenty of margaritas.

We went with Trav's boss John, his wife Mary, co-worker Steve, and his wife Shirley. It was for the Land O Lakes Reward Trip and it was awesome! There were about 20 couples, 10 people who worked for Land O Lakes, and another 5 couples representing the sponsors of the trip. It was quite a large group and everyone we met was a lot of fun.

Travis has had to put in a lot of hours at his job the last couple years, but a free vacation to Mexico is definitely a nice perk! We are thankful we got to go!

The girls had a lot of fun with Aunt KK, Granny and Grandpa. They didn't miss us at all! They were happy to see us yesterday morning though. It was the longest we have ever left them and it was hard for me to leave. It was good to have a break and remember that we're a couple and not just parents.

We stayed at the Occidental Grand XCaret Resort in Riveria de Maya, Mexico. It was about an hour south of Cancun. The resort was absolutely beautiful and huge! There was a lot of the resort we didn't even see I think. We also went to the XCaret ecological park attached to the resort. It had a fun underground river we floated through.

We spent a lot of time in the water, either at the beach or in one of the five swimming pools. We made a lot of new friends who go on the trip each year. We can't wait to go back.

We are burnt (especially Travis) and peeling but still feeling relaxed. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
