Viva la Mexico...

Sorry this post has taken me so long to complete. First of all, we have a ton of pictures!! I didn't want to bore you with all of them, so I have picked a few of them. I was also very busy planning Lyllian's first birthday party. Anyway, my in-laws took us to Cozumel for 10 days! It was WONDERFUL!!!! We had a blast and I can't wait to go back. It was such a nice family atmosphere!

The pictures are out of order-sorry! I will tell y'all about each picture though ( I know that makes it all better :))

This is our resort from the pier area. It was beautiful! To the right of the beach is an infinity pool that Lyllian and I hung out a lot in while Daddy snorkel right off shore. She liked being able to see Daddy and he was able to see us.

Every night after dinner the resort put on a "show" in the open air theatre. Lyllian loved it, but usually fell asleep by the end-ha!
This is our little sun-kissed baby one day after hanging out at the beach and the pool!

During our break time from the sun, we took a little tme to read :)

Lyllian lurved playing peek-a-boo at the window to the balcony with Mommy.She got her first taste of Mango while in Mexico (in a popsicle form) and pineapple juice-she loved them both!
Kit and Stanton (Tim's brothers) became Mexican wrestlers while we were there! I never realized how popular wrestling was in Mexico-insane!

Tim and I got to hold some parrots! I actually let the parrot kiss me too-crazy! They are soooo soft!

This is our BEAUTIFUL beach baby!!

Again, with the mango popsicles, it actually had real pieces of mango and was a delish, all natural treat for the beach!

Kit and Stanton also loved the orange drinks at the authentic Mexican restuarant off the beaten path in town, we all did!
EVERYTHING is a jungle gym to Lyl, including the attached bench in the room!

This is my authentic Mexican food, best tacos I have every eaten hands down!!!! I LOVED IT! Our waiter spoke NO English and we really had to practice using our Spanish-- ah-mazing experience!

We had a jeep one day to go explore the island. This view is from Coconuts, the highest point on the island. They had wonderful guacamole and a breath taking view!!!

One of the many views from the road while driving down the coast in the jeep.

This is before we left, Lyllian was helping me pack. She really just wanted me to unpack so she could play in the suitcase-ha!

Lyllian did a great job on the plane. On the way from Dallas to Cozumel she ended up with her own seat. She took the opportunity to catch up on her reading-ha!

She and McGuire built sand castles together!And she crawled ALL over the beach-thank goodness there weren't very many people on the beach and they all thought she was too cute!

I will leave you with this-an AH-MAZING Mexican sunset!!!
