But getting there, well that was a whole other story. We almost didn't make it. While we were waiting at the Toronto Airport, we got called to the front desk and they informed us that the flight we thought we were taking home from Mexico had been cancelled, but yet no one had informed us, by phone or email. How does that happen right??
At first it seemed that we might not be going to Mexico since they didn't have any available flights going back home on that day, its a good thing we had a 3 hour wait until boarding to Mexico since we spent 2.5hr talking to all kinds of people, no lie I swear we walked a 10km in that airport, back and forth talking to different people. Finally after forever, it seemed we had a flight back, I was overjoyed! Being 6 months pregnant, flying the red eye the night before with literally 1/2hr of sleep and some tears added to the frustration and exhaustion. So they told us when we landed in Mexico to make sure that our tickets were there and everything was good to go.. well you can imagine how Upset we were when we found out that yes, Jeremy had a ticket but I didn't.. seriously?? They told us maybe it hadn't gone through the computer system yet and to check back in a few days.. REALLY so I again spent hours on the phone over the next few days talking to yes, different people every time I called and no one ever knowing what the heck was going on.. but finally 3 days before departure I had my ticket. Yea!!
So after all that, we settled into enjoying our vacation. I really missed the boys the first 3 days and worried if they were behaving, but after talking to Shirley and the boys and finding out they were being very good, I decided I better soak it all in and stop worrying because I wasn't going to be going anywhere without kids again for a long time, especially with the baby arriving in August.
So picture this, lounging by the cool blue water in the fabulous sunshine enjoying a pina colada or ice cold lemonade while reading a good book without interruption from children and hearing the waves roll in off the ocean.. nice, right? no AWESOME!! yup it sure was everyday. Besides lounging around, there was activities going on at the resort, water and beach volleyball were a lot of fun, everyone loved the boogie boarding and Jeremy enjoyed some beach soccer too. It was fun having some of my Aunts and Uncles and cousins there, (they have a timeshare with my parents as well) we just happened to all plan our vacations around the same time and so there was never ending entertainment.
The guys were doing synchronized swimming, it was hilarious!
Aren't they so cute!
oh those "not so sweet" bus rides
enjoying the last of the sun, we did this every night, relaxing, talking and playing games.
