A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.
You didn’t think I would just post one picture from my Mexico vacation did you? Even though this trip was drastically different from last years, going from Mai Tais to giant thighs, I still thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. This was actually the first time I debated about spending more time in my room than on the beach.
With a porch that wrapped around with views of water on both sides, I was in heaven. Maybe the 80 degree temperatures helped too.
Naturally I couldn’t stay away from the water too long. They say pools are very therapeutic for pregnant women, and I would agree.
While I soaked in the rays, Chris did enough drinking for the both of us while competing in a beer chugging contest.
He blew the other contestants out of the water…pun intended. I’ve never been more proud!
The pool was nice, but the beach was amazing. I preferred to lounge there everyday, which worked out in my favor because I got to witness the hatching of a large group of sea turtles.
I divided my time between the beach and the spa, where I had the most spectacular pregnancy massage. I even was able to drag the boys along for some of the services.
I was ecstatic to find that the salon had my favorite summer nail polish color, OPI’s “The It Color.”
Since we were there over the 4th of July holiday, I probably should have chosen a more patriotic color, but I just couldn’t resist.
I was not sure if they would celebrate the American holiday in Mexico, but they went all out.
A huge buffet was set up for dinner, followed by a live band, and fireworks.
We decided to watch the show from our deck, and it was dazzling to see the fireworks against the ocean backdrop.
The Cancun Palace knew how to put on a good show. Another great performance we enjoyed while we were there was the Michael Jackson show. I can’t get enough of his music!
Who doesn’t enjoy a good Michael Jackson impersonation? Overall, it was such an incredible week, and I have to say it’s been awhile since I got to spend a whole week with my family. I’m so thankful to my dad and stepmother for making it possible.
I sure love my family, and I can’t wait to start my own.
