Vacation, all I ever wanted....Vacation, happy to get away.....

Ahhh, Viva Mexico! It has been one full week since we came home from Cancun, but it flew by. It seems as though we were just stepping excitedly onto the plane to leave, with heavy hearts (because of our girl), yet giddy at the thought of some SLEEP and alone time.

I found out on vacation that yes, indeed, I have turned into "That mom". You know, the one who NEVER. STOPS. TALKING. ABOUT. THEIR. CHILD. I'm sure CJ's brother Corey and SIL Jill were ready to strangle me. But I couldn't help it. I missed my girl so fiercely, it literally hurt. There were many couples with babies at the resort, and CJ and found ourselves going "honey, look....the baby!", whenever we saw them. There was one little girl who we found out was right about K's age, which made us miss her all the more, and another little 9 month old girl ( I asked! LOL), who had her swimsuit! *sigh*. Talk about heartsick.

We called home just about once a day to find out about her adventures with Nana and Papa. Of course, Keifer was fine and so loved and busy, but still....it was very hard to not see her and kiss her. And the fur kids, of course! I miss my Sassy Sager not cuddling up against my back or legs every night in bed.

Anyhoo....here are some pics of our awesome time in Cancun Riviera Maya. We stayed at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya (not to be confused with the 4 other Riu properties on the same street as us). It was heaven on earth. Food galore. There were the restaurants that you had to make reservations for, and the buffet place to eat for all three meals of the day. We ate and ate and ate. I literally gained about 8 pounds just being down there eating. I love the fresh juices and fresh guacamole! Ugg...I miss it! We had dinner 2 nights at the "reservation" places: the Steak house and the Japanese (sushi, anyone?). This place had a wonderful entertainment staff that worked their arses off day and night, and a beautiful central courtyard with live entertainment every night. However, our rooms faced the courtyard, and that was the one downside to our stay. We could hear EVERYTHING entertainment wise in our rooms at night; not so nice if you want to get to bed early, as I did 2 of the 5 nights. The beds were hard as rocks, but some people don't' mind that. How can you not like your fridge being restocked every day with soda, beer, and waters, and being able to eat and drink WHENEVER you want? Ahh, heaven on earth. I hope we get to see Mexico again.

Here are some pics:
