Older, But With a Tan

Hello, all! Remember me? I've returned from the most wonderful vacation to Cancun another year older. I don't feel like I am 27.

Anyway, we had a great time. Here are just a few of the pictures we took:

Hammocks over the pool

Hot tub in our roomOur room
Bed on our balcony
My favorite statue

Pool view from our room

Another statue
The infamous feet and the beach picture
My wonderful dad, mom, and husband
I loved the poinsettias
And the Christmas trees were beautiful
My hubby and I on my birthday!
My family at Chichen Itza (a must see)

We have SOOOOO many others, but it would take to long to post and I don't want to bore you. We went on a bike tour, toured the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, Fred and my dad played basketball, archery and horse shoes, and we relaxed mainly. My mom and I enjoyed a massage at the spa. They actually used hydrotherapy on you before your massage leaving you completely relaxed. Our hotel was AMAZING! If you're ever considering going to Cancun, but you don't want the "party-animal" Cancun, I suggest you look at Excellence Playa Mujeres. It was located 25 miles north of Cancun. It's an adults only, all-inclusive with great food and a super friendly staff. I was very impressed and would definitely visit there again (soon, I hope).

We missed Knox dearly. He would have loved the beach and the sun. We left him at home with our good friend, Mason. Knox was super excited to see us when we got home last night. It even looked like he grew. I missed him.

So, how have you all been? I've missed blogging, but it was a nice break.

Some of you would be proud of me, I started reading the "Twilight series. I'm enjoying them. I am already on "Breaking Dawn". They are easy to read especially when you're relaxing on the beach all day. I am now actually excited for the "Eclipse" movie to come out. :)

Now that the "Twelve Days of Caroline" and the trip are over, I need to get my booty in gear and finish Christmas shopping. Can you believe Christmas is one week from today? Where did the time go?

So, tell me, what did I miss?
