Memorial Day Weekend Rewind

Well as is quite obvious, most of our Memorial Day Weekend consisted of finishing up our trip to Mexico, traveling home, & then playing catchup with household duties such as laundry, mowing the lawn & grocery shopping. Ughhh...the realites of coming home from a week-long vacation.

Our beach from our chairs on the first afternoon.

We have plans to spend the evening with our dear friends for a traditional, informal cookout complete with burgers, rotel, & rice krispy treats. I've got all the photos from our trip put on the computer but I hope to edit them a bit before posting. Hopefully I'll be able to get to that quickly & do a recap shortly.

The most important thing is that we had an incredible time & most everything went off without a hitch (minus a couple of mild cases of Montezuma's revenge & Hubby's first case of swimmer's ear which we are still dealing with). Other than that things were fantastic. The weather was beautiful, the resort was just as we'd expected, & the food was decent.

I'll leave you with a tidbit of our week & how we enjoyed it in paradise!

We walked down the beach for dinner at an open-air restaurant.

Hubby played golf at a beautiful course while I cheered him on & played photographer!

We put on our adventurous hats or helmets in this case & went ziplining, drove amphibious vehicles, & swam in underground caves where the water was only 75 degrees!

We continued our adventure with some snorkeling with sea turtles!

But finished off the week with this view from our chairs, a good book, a final strawberry colada, & a gorgeous day.

We spent 7 amazing days & 8 wonderful nights together and capped everything off with dinner right here.

Oh don't you worry, there is much more to come!

How fun! Great pictures. Can't wait to here more!
We went snorkeling with seas turtles too - how funny! But I didn't have a waterproof camera, so I couldn't take pictures. *sigh*

Wow, looks beautiful! What a great way to spend the holiday - and yes, it's always SO hard to come back to the 'real world' after such a great vacation!

It looks like you guys had a great time. I'm in love with sea turtles and a tad jealous you saw some snorkeling. Can't wait to hear more.
