Cancun – Travel Day and First Full Day

Story told by: Mommy

We recently had an amazing kid-free trip to Cancun, Mexico to celebrate Matt and Courtney’s wedding! (ONE MILLION thanks to Kylan’s parents for watching the kids while we were gone.)

Turns out the flying without kids is AMAZING. You can travel with ONE bag! We constantly felt like we were forgetting something (like diapers, wipes, bottles, car seats, strollers, etc.). Then you get on the plane, sleep, eat, and you’re there. That’s it.

When we arrived in Cancun, my bag ended up in another airline’s office (not even in another baggage claim). Weird. Due to the language barrier, we couldn’t figure out where we were going, but it involved trekking through the jungle, dodging traffic, and going into some shady parts of the airport. After a two-hour delay at the airport, we found my bag and made it to the resort!

We got there around 8 pm., and immediately had a delicious dinner, and a fun night with friends.

The lovebirds!

We also made some new Canadian friends.

On Thursday morning, we woke up at 9 a.m. and SIPPED (not chugged or guzzled) HOT (not cold or lukewarm) coffee in bed.

For the rest of the day, there was lots of relaxing and time to enjoy the beautiful weather.

College friends!

We had a brief (but beautiful rain shower that afternoon), but that’s the only rain we had the entire trip.

We went to a Brazilian restaurant at the resort, and our waiter was hilarious. He requested that we take this picture.

The resort was all-inclusive, which means it was fun to try lots of different drinks!

A Bob Marley drink!

A welcome reception for all of the wedding guests happened on Thursday night.

Love this girl.
