Two nights after we got our kids back home,
was searching all over the Internet,
trying to book another trip!
That's when I had to remind him that we won't be doing it for at least another 5 yrs.
but not really!
We stayed at the Mayan Palace. When you walked in there was this Mayan rock,
which was converted into a fountain.
We mostly stayed at the resort, and just swam and read our books.
I love that Tom likes to read as much as me.
We both polished off 4 books on this trip.
This is where we had some really good Japanese food.
The irony isn't lost on us, but you can't get Tom to pass up
his favourite cuisine. Even if you're in Mexico, with great Mexican food,
Japanese is his first choice!
This was our fave local spot. It was good, but the service was "maso menos"!
Hence our anxious face expressions... I think I'm actually telling Tom to hurry up and take the picture!
He likes to wait till I've been smiling f-o-r-e-v-e-r before he will snap it,
and I don't really find the humor in it,
but he sure seems too!
We did spend one day doing lots of stuff.
We took a boat trip to a Tamazingly fancy beach side snorkeling cove called
It was so much fun!
The boat sailed past the city of Puerto Vallarta
The water right here is too murky, but in the cove that we went too it was perfect!
Don't you just love nerdy snorkeling pics?
This is my absolute favourite thing to do!
And it is one of the only times I don't mind being alone,
but I'm glad Tom was there too! He is pretty fun to have around.
We got to have lunch on the beach.
I didn't think too much of it when we booked the trip.
I thought, "why would that be so cool?"
"I could do without it if it made the trip cost less!"
But I was wrong...
the island breeze,
the delicious food,
the great service!
I loved it all!
The entire day was extremely beautiful, and incredibly relaxing!
I put this pic on so you can laugh at my snorkel line that stayed on my face the rest of the trip!
The kayak was fun, but I just wanted to snorkel all day.
The guide let me hold a sea anemone.
I wish I was there right now,
instead of blogging in the middle of the day in my p.j.'s!
I don't see Tom smile like this enough anymore!
Our grown up life is stressful,
but it's nice to know that he can still pull his smiley face out.
But who wouldn't when you have zero responsibility,
and get to hang out at the beach/pool all day long?
I guess we did spend one day doing touristy stuff,
but it was still fun, and not too stressful.
And here are our "oh shoot we have to go home" faces.
They didn't last too long cause this guy was funny,
and we got to see our kids when we got off the plane.
