Vamos, Let’s Go! – Round 2

Say hey, friends!   Well, I finally have something exciting to post about…we went on vacation last week!  In fact, we went back to the resort in that Jeremy and I honeymooned at, in Mexico and we went with Jeremy’s parents and younger sister.

Yay, for missing a week of work!

Our 8 day vacation was spent at the Aventura Spa Palace Resort which is an adults only all inclusive resort, located in the Riviera Maya area south of Cancun in Mexico. It is an all inclusive resort that included optional excursions, 24 hour room service, dining at any of the resorts  restaurants and unlimited food and drinks at the pool.

The resort was just like we remembered it and our week consisted of: laying out, going to Isla Mujeres, snorkeling, getting spa treatments (I love facials), eating mass amounts of chips and guacamole, taking a tour of the kitchen area of the resort, going to an adventure park and staying inside playing board games because it rained.  Well, it didn’t just rain, it poured actually.  As a matter of fact, I heard someone say that they usually get 2 inches of rain in the whole month of April, but in three of the days that we were there…they got 6 inches!

Hey, we look kinda tan!  What a fun vacation!

P.S.  For those of you wondering, Diesel had a little vacation of his own and he spent 9 glorious days at the Hassayampa Canine Spa!  He must have just run around the entire time he was there because he slept for about 1 1/2 when he got home.

He found a stick on our walk.

Ooooh this is exciting!

It looks like you guys all had a fun time on your vacation. Did you like snorkeling? I bet that would be so much fun.

Didn't you go to Vegas too?
