Alright, so apparently I only update this thing when we go on a trip! Anyway, we just got back from an amazing trip to Riviera Maya in Cancun. It was a blast and I'm still slightly fighting post-vacation blues.
Ever since we got back from our last trip to the Dominican Republic, we decided we needed to do as many of these trips as we can before we start having kids. Levi wasn't working last winter/spring semester, so I told him as soon as he was working again, we could book a trip. The week after he started back a MarketStar, this trip was booked! We invited Levi's mom and stepdad, Lisa and Mike. A few weeks before the trip we decided "the more the merrier" so we invited my dad, and stepmom, Deanne. They of course brought my younger sister, Danica.
We flew with Mike and Lisa out of Vegas, where they live. We met up with my family on Wednesday night after we all arrived at the resort.
We stayed at the Catalonia Riviera Maya. It is in this gated community called Puerto Adventure. It was GORGEOUS!
We spent Thursday just relaxing by the pool and checking out all that the resort had to offer. We ate whenever we wanted and always had a cold delicious drink in hand. Even though we were combining two families that hadn't spent a ton of time together (except for our wedding), everyone clicked really quickly.
Friday we all went on an incredible excursion to Chichen Itza. We boarded the bus early in the morning and they took us to an underground sink hole. We swam in the water that legend tells will make you 10 years younger!
We are in cave about 50 Ft. under ground
We got back on the bus and they took us to lunch. After that we headed to the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. It was incredible. And HOT!
We got back on the bus and they took us to a city (I can't remember what it was called). Apparently it used to be ruins, like Chichen Itza, but settlers came and tore it down to build a city. We had about twenty minutes to explore.
So a little back story... When we were in the DR, they had the most delicious churros I've ever had. I always said I wish I had eaten more while we were there! So leading up to this trip, all I could talk about to Levi was how much I hope they had good churros at our resort. Well, our resort had churros, but they were not very good. I was so disappointed.
So fast forward to our excursion... While we were waiting to get off the bus at this city, we saw people with churros! So we ran around this little park looking for them.
Levi found his favorite mayonnaise covered corn...
And we found the churros!!! I have the crazy look I get when I'm really happy! They were filled with chocolate and caramel. The caramel ones are now the most delicious churros I've ever had! We also got ice cream... I have the diet of a 5 year old...
On Saturday night, we made friends with one of the entertainment staff. His name is Javier and he was OBSESSED with Deanne and making her feel embarrassed. He was so cute and fun!
He liked Danica, too. But who doesn't?!
She's one of my faves :)
Saturday and Sunday we spent at the pool.
We could not have asked for better weather. Both days were more over cast, so it helped with the heat. Have I mentioned it was HOT?!
I love this guy and the fun things we get to do!
Our last night at dinner
On Sunday night they had a beach party. It was a lot of fun!
Danica and I were the only ones who danced. We only danced for 2 songs... it was getting too sweaty for me!
Then Javier spotted us and pulled Danica and Deanne each up to dance. He tried to get me, but didn't put up a fight when I said no... probably cause he was scared of Levi... :)
It was so sad to leave. We always have so much fun on these trips. We've already started talking about where we want to go next!
