The kids stayed with my parents for 2 1/2 days and Tim's mom for another 2 1/2 days. From my understanding Josh was excellent. Owen decided to get double ear infections while we were gone so he definitely kept the grandparents on their toes! Tim and I are VERY appreciative for having such wonderful parents that will watch our children and let us have some much needed time away.
Tim and I got to Dallas on Saturday and had dinner with some friends, Chris & Jane and their children, Marshall and Chloe. It was wonderful to see everyone again. It had been right at 10 yrs. since I last saw Chris and Jane at Texas A&M. Tim and I enjoyed seeing their precious children as well. Little Chloe was 2 weeks old and such and angel. Marshall reminds me a lot of Josh - both in looks and personality. They are a great family!
We flew to Mexico on Sunday afternoon and had a wonderful time. Everyone keeps asking ... "so, what did you guys do?" and really, for the most part, we RELAXED! We spent most of our time at the swim-up bar and sitting in the sun reading. We did one excursion, we went on a Jungle Tour and that was a lot of fun! We rented a speed boat and went through the "jungle" and then to a coral reef in the middle of the ocean for snorkeling. Tim had a shark swim 3 ft. underneath him and he about jumped out of the water. Our guide, simply said "no worries, no worries" .... hmmmm ..... really?
Other than that, we enjoyed just being "us" again and our time at the all-inclusive resort.
