Last Thursday we loaded up and headed to beautiful Cancun, Mexico for my cousin's wedding. This was the first time my WHOLE family has vacationed together and it did not disappoint. Five days of family fun is just what the heart needed.
The wedding was at the Finest Playa Mujeres resort. The whole resort is absolutely breathtaking. We booked a swim-up room which I highly recommend. Being able to walk out the door and hop in the pool is exactly what vacation is all about.
The food was okay. I'm not going to lie and say there weren't some meals that we didn't like, but I'll also say that none of us went hungry :) Their ice cream is to die for!
Chris and I had the best time unplugging from technology and spending quality time with our family. My brother and Chris are two peas in a pod and broke the rules just about everyday. From not wearing the appropriate clothes to making a pillow wall on the hammock to jump over, they were constantly being told to stop doing something. At one point there were about five men with ear pieces staring at us while we were in our swim-up pool because they were preparing to tell the boys to stop jumping over the hammock. It was quite hilarious!
We spent our days lounging at the beach and pool, burning at the beach and pool, playing beach volleyball, playing tennis, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, maneuvering our own catamaran, snorkeling, napping, ordering room service, and ordering fruity drink after fruity drink.
I'm not sure when our next vacation is, but I'll be dreaming about the clear waters of Cancun for weeks to come!
