Back from vacation and let me just say that everyone should go hang out on the beach for 4 days... We had a little bit of a rough start due to airport drama, but I'm trying to block that part out of my memory! Other than that the trip was awesome. We did a lot of nothing! We walked the beach, laid out on the beach, swam in the pool, sat around and smoked Cubans (one night), played cards, shopped, and sat around some more! We actually got to rest alot! Blogger will only let me post a few pics at a time, so here is round one!

Here is the front of the resort where we stayed. It is the Viva Maya Wyndam and it was great. Everyone was quite polite and the food was pretty good too! It is an all inclusive resort, so all food and drinks were included and there were quite a few activities to keep us occupied during the day. We did a few of the activities and watched a few more, but we didn't rush around to participate... we wanted to relax! :)

This next picture is the view of the ocean when walking down the beach front! BEAUTIFUL! I had never seen water so blue before! It was great! It was a little too rough to do some of the kayaking and canoeing that the resort offered, but since that sounded like work to me and Amy we were good with that!

Here you have Robert, Me, Amy and Matt. The resort had restaurants that you could make reservations at, but the guys had to wear slacks! We went to a different restaurant each night! The food was a little weird for me, but I found stuff to eat at each place and the rest of the gang thought the food was awesome... I'm just a little weird about textures and particular about taste!

Here is a little of my hubby's personality! This is the Mexican restaurant on the resort and if you wanted to take pics you had to wear the hats! Fun stuff! And this pic was before the Mexican Coffee, which let me say is not your everyday coffee! :)

This final pic is right after we 'rededicated' our marriage to the Lord and recommitted to each other! For those of you who have been reading for a while, you know how our marriage almost ended last year... this trip was our first ever trip together in 12 yrs of marriage and it's purpose was to reconnect and to recommit. This was the final night at the resort... we went out to the beach and Matt and Amy each read some versus from Corinthians and Ephesians and said a prayer over our marriage and we recommitted to each other. It was amazing and quite beautiful!

As you can see we had a great time and I feel like it was worth the mucho money we spent! I'll post some of the wild animal pics we have tomorrow!
