A little bit of sunshine

Last week, Denver and I had a great opportunity to vacation to Cancun, Mexico for a pre-graduation present (thanks Teresa and Dan!). It was such a relaxing, incredible week for us. No distractions, no work, no annoying people. We soon settled into a comfortable routine of getting up around 9:00, and then we would head to the beach. We wanted to avoid the hottest parts of the day so we wouldn't get too sunburned. We would stay in the resort room for a couple of hours in the afternoon, and then go to dinner. Most of the resturaunts were American, but I didn't mind. I'm kind of a sissy and like to know what I'm eating. Denver and I had two major events we got to do. We went snorkeling on a Jungle Tour. In our group we got into boats and drove to a reef in the ocean to snorkel. Denver loved driving the boat, and I was happy to go along for the ride! We also went to the ancient Mayan ruins of Chicen-Iza. Take a look!

I loved seeing the ruins. It really was mind boggling to get a glimpse into the lives of these ancient people. Fascinating. This was my favorite part of the trip, although the humidity did hit me pretty hard, and I became cranky for a while. Poor Denver did his best to put up with me though. 

The trip was so much fun. It was great to spend quality time with Denver. Kind of like a second honeymoon. Actually, people kept asking us if we were on our honeymoon, and I shocked them when I said we've been married almost three years. :) We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and loved the Westin resort we were able to stay at. Even though we were in Cancun over Spring Break, our place was classy and the people were mainly older or with families, so no crazy party people for us. Whew! 
Guess it's time for me to go back to the real world. I hate that expression. :) Because what is real life anyway? It's with Denver. Duh.
