we are back from our vacation in mexico!
where did we go exactly?
playa del carmen... south of cancun.
sorry no posting last week... i just couldn't justify spending $20 a day for internet access. boo.
besides, i think it was good for me to leave the blog, the facebook, the emails, the phone calls, the texts, the driving, the working, the schooling... all tucked away for a week.
it was really refreshing actually.
mexico humidity, however, is not so refreshing. i'm glad to be back to my dry desert air where i can actually breathe!
we had a lot of fun with lincoln's friends he met while serving a two year mission in Poland. there were 10 of us... his four friends and their wives.
mitch & serretta
katie & roo
chris & jamie
chase & tamari
and of course:
and here is our trip documented.
i decided i'm not a very good vacation photographer. i need to work on this.
also there are about a million pictures of lincoln... and not any one else... including me.
so i'm warning you.
this is basically a documentation of lincoln on vacation.
we spent the day at the resort pool (most gigantic one i've ever seen) and beach. we got royally fried. sunburned. to the core. that mexican sun is a beast. i spent the rest of the week nursing said sunburn and losing a lot of sleep.
but the beach? so pretty, yes?
and my most favorite photo from the trip:
isn't that just the best?
mayan ruins. and cenotes caves.
the boys the girls
apparently the mayans liked to play tic-tac-toe.
lincoln's feelings on hot humid air.
we like our dry desert heat.
then the cenotes. underwater caves.
really cool. lincoln loved it. i, on the other hand, got a little freaked out with all the deep dark water, lack of life jacket, and looming caves above my head... which were also covered in bats.
really cool. but also freaky.
my handsome husband:
we spent the next fews days just relaxing at the resort. the boys played lots and lots of beach volleyball.
check out the hops my husband has! can you see him? far right by the net.
result of beach volleyball:
sand. everywhere! husband leaked sand out of his eyes for days.
friday we took a ferry over to cozmel. and snorkled. i still need to get our underwater film developed. those photos will come later.
on a side note... here is a picture of us on the ferry. it's funny because:
a) this is the most tan you will ever see me. i don't tan. i actually have a tan line in this photo.
b) lincoln is still a million times tanner than me.
c) see the red peeling stripe on my forehead? i kept telling lincoln all week that i had cancer on my forehead. it looked awful.
lincoln's favorite moment of the trip: feeding the parrot.
who knew? so easily entertained.
after snorkeling we walked around the town.
and then we said goodbye to cozmel.
one thing i loved about our resort was the pier.
seriously. so picturesque.
after all the sunburns, sand, countless uno matches, taxis rides,
we said adios to mehico.
vacation: much needed and accepted well.
now... back to reality.
oh. and i'm shedding skin like none other. it looks like i have a skin disease.
just wanted you to know.
