Mexico

Last Thursday Shane and I snuck off to Mexico for our long awaited "we made it through law school trip". We went to Isla Mujeres, a little island that is about a 30 minute ferry ride from Cancun and far far away from the big spring break zone. It was the perfect place for us. A small, authentic, and sweet community, but with all the perks of a luxurious hotel.



We got upgraded to a suite with an ocean view...no arguments here!







Our first full day it was chilly and rainy, and we were told that we should expect more of the same for the rest of the week.



So, we spent that day trying to get over the disappointment and just appreciate a chilly week in Mexico. We contemplated buying matching bahas since swimsuits weren't gonna cut it. And then, praise the Lord, we woke up the next day and the sun came out. It was warm and sunny every day after. Perfect.



We went snorkeling, scuba diving, laid around and drank margaritas, walked around the cute town at night, laughed together, and discovered that we really do still like each other quite a bit. Not just love, like.



It was awesome.

More tomorrow, but for now I need to get back to miss Monkey Pants. I missed her like crazy. Nothing like a no-nap day to transition you right back to motherhood :).

If you are waiting for a call or email back from me I'll get to it as soon as I can. Adios!

I thought you went with Shane, why I am wondering is because I could have sworn in one of those pics, there was some guy taking a nap! I miss you friend, glad you all had time to "like" eachother!

That was one of my mom's favorite places in Mexico! Did you swim with dolphins there? That was her fave...

NO WAY! That is where we went on our honeymoon! You never really hear about this place but you described it perfectly-"a small, authentic, and sweet community"-that is EXACTLY how I would describe it. And funny Pat and I were just talking about how we need to go back in like 10 years-ha! Glad you made it there much sooner:)

Hey ladies! We didn't swim with the dolphins Julia. Sounded cool though! Can't believe you went there Lisa! What a great place to honeymoon. You've got to go back. Two kids in three years? I think its time for a Mexican getaway! Can't wait to see you too Amy!
