Last year at this time we were in sunny delicious Cancun for 2 whole weeks.


We are not usually “go the same place over and over” people.  But Cancun captured our hearts years back.  And we find we keep returning.

But, alas, not this year.

That trip last year (with our friends Jordie and Katrina) was while we were making preparations for moving our family to Mexico.

Austin, India and Selena are fun to travel with and they know how to have a great time just “kicking back” together.  Jordie and his “kitchen crew” treated us to some fantastic breakfasts.  Always outside, because it would just be silly to waste such gorgeous weather by being inside.  Katrina is one of India’s BFFs and they would just hang out and chat for hours.

After 2 weeks you might think that everyone was ready to come home.  No way!  The kiddos were ready to just stay forever.  (me too!)

Now we are actually down in Mexico to live.  Although where we live is very pretty, it’s not Cancun.  Just to clarify -we are a 22 hour drive away from Cancun.

It was a blast with Shannon & SueAnn, a fun adventure with Mike, Rhonda & Carly, relaxing with Jared, Alison & Baby Hailey, great catching up with Tom & Tamar.  We count it a blessing to have been able to share these memories with some very special people.

***this was when we came home and they were showing off their backpacks.  (oh, and i do miss my house)

***everyone showing off their cool souvenir outfits from Jordie & Katrina

It took me several shots to get the photo I used in the opening of our little video.

And here are a couple of my all time fav shots from previous trips…

from my very first "stone age" digital camera -best shot ever!!!

carly's famous pose -often imitated, never duplicated

they really love each other

pure joy

I just love these faces forever!

    Oh the memories of Cancun… the best vacation ever. Hard to believe when we went with you it was just Austin with India on the way.
