Viva Mexico! Playa del Carmen

A great thing about living in Texas is that you can fly to Mexico and be on the beach by noon. Hence our glorious trip to Playa del Carmen. The weather was fantastic, the beach was beautiful, and the resort spoiled us with three full meals a day. We (meaning "I") had dessert with every meal. The Hip Chicks had tons-a-fun and had definitely earned their fins by the last day.
Natalya said that one of her favorite things about the trip was getting to run in the sand.

Vienne said that one of her favorite things about the trip was "eating Goldfish [crackers]".

To see the full set of photos from our trip, click here.

Some observations of life in our Mexican resort:
1. She (or he) with the darkest tan wins.
2. Sunbathing topless seemed to be more popular with women above the age of 60.
3. That the adult pool with the swim up bar probably had more pee in it than the kiddie pool.
4. That a liquor dispenser is more desirable in a hotel room than a coffee maker.
5. Saving your pool chairs in the morning was much like the Oklahoma Land Rush.
6. So nice you won't want to come back home.

these are SO GOOD Melody! I love the one of Natalya running...and the angle of the shot of Vienne. Fiesta looks fun! We missed it this year, except for one night at NIOSA for girls night out.

Hi there! I found the link finally!! It didn't quite come out on your comment so I did a bit of skimming and scanning :-)
Natalya's braids suit her a lot better than the Baby Angel's do her. Has she just had the front done? There's something about BA's hairline and pink scalp that just doesn't do it for me. (silly Mum)
I laughed at your observations. My comment re No 2 is that they only LOOK like they're over 60 because they've been sunbathing (with or with out their tops) for TOO LONG!!! No 3 CRACKED ME UP!!
