Easy peasy.

Riviera Maya

 I mentioned this last week, but we packed our bags and flew to the Riviera Maya for the kids spring break.  For the first time in AGES, we totally “unplugged” and enjoyed a week of sun, food and swimming, minus electronics.  It was really, really nice.

I have so many pictures that you’ll be sick of hearing about our trip.  And seeing it.  TRUST me.

We knew from past experience that the kids would want blended drinks poolside so we decided to go for an all inclusive resort.  It was the best choice because I swear to you, those 5 kids drank more blended drinks each day than I would have ever thought possible.


The boys would crowd around Jeff when he would get a drink like it was the first time they’d ever tasted a blended fruity drink.  It was insane.  Let’s just call it the vacation of the Mud Slide (this was basically a blended chocolate milk), the Mango Tango and the Good Boy, shall we?

The Beach

The sand on the beach was amazingly soft and totally made up for the fact that there was a ton of seaweed in the ocean.  I know that sounds strange to say.  There’s always seaweed in the ocean, but this was in inordinate amount. Like, it was floating around everywhere.  The water was so blue and warm though, there was no deterring us from swimming in it!

{See the seaweed hanging out in the water?}


Do you kids guzzle blended drinks while on vacation, too?
