We got back from Cancun yesterday. We had such a great time! We left on Monday and due to the weather here in DSM our flight out of DSM was delayed by over an hour and since we originally only had 1 hour between flights, we missed our connecting flight in Dallas. But we were lucky and they got us on the next flight. We arrived at our resort around 3 p.m. in Cancun and it didn't take us long to get to the pool! Our resort was nice and we did have to switch rooms but it turned out to be a good thing cuz we were given a much nicer room! On Tuesday the sun was shining most of the day but it was really windy. We were at the pool pretty much all day long and then went for a nice dinner at the resort. Wednesday brought some less than ideal weather, it was windy, chilly and the sun didn't shine at all...so we decided to head into town. We did a little browsing and shopping and then headed back to the resort. We then napped by the pool while being wrapped in towels...it was fun though. Thursday brought perfect weather!!! It was sunny and warm and we stayed by the pool all day long again. It was great! There was a Mr. Solaris (the name of our resort) contest and we made all 3 boys sign up for it. They had to do a little dance, push-ups, poses, etc it was hilarious!!! Bryce ended up getting 3rd place and Andy won! Ha ha ha! Too Funny! After a long day in the sun (where we all got a little burnt) we headed to dinner for the last time at the resort. We were all wiped out and headed to bed early to get ready for our flight back home early Friday morning. We all really enjoyed the resort (especially the drinks, dinners, entertainment and just having fun with our friends). We had a pretty uneventful trip back to DSM. We did have some pretty tough turbulance on the flight from Dallas to DSM and it made most of us sick to our stomachs but we survived! We had such an amazing time!!! We vowed that we will make this a yearly trip, it was a great get-a-way especially given how rough this winter has been.
We did miss Brady a ton! He spent time with my parents and Andy's. I know he had so much fun with his grandparents. Luckily Kris was able to bring Brady home to us shortly after we got home. It was great to see him! Below are some pics...I wasn't able to put captions on them but will try to do so later!
