1/6/09 Cancun - Day 1

We landed last night at 8:45 - then we had to do customs, catch our ride to the hotel, check-in, and get to our room. We didn't finally make it to the room until 11:30. None of us had had dinner and Chris and I were starving, so Chris went out to find us some food, and I worked on putting the kids to bed. Surprisingly, it was extremely difficult to get them to sleep. They were all wound up, and sleep was the furthest thing from their minds. Finally, around midnight, they both drifted off to sleep, and Chris came back with a yummy panini for me to munch on before I drifted off to sleep myself. Ahhh...a bed is a wonderful thing!
Sadly, the next morning, because of excitement, I surmise, both boys were awake by 5:30. That's not much sleep for two little guys! Or for me, either. I took Grant outside on our balcony and we watched the sun rise for a while. Chris had Mason in the bed with him and was not happy to be awake. I opened the suitcases and was not pleased to find that our sealed Sam's Size container of formula had burst open during flight and all over one of the suitcases. So we spent the morning trying to clean up the sticky formula mess all over everything. Ugh. After breakfast, Chris and I met with the travel services to plan our excursions for the week. We were so excited about everything and were looking forward to our trips.
We took the kids to Wet and Wild this afternoon for some fun at the water park. They both LOVED the water and were having the time of their lives. Grant, however, had trouble listening. He would run off to the water all by himself without any warning, so we found ourselves having to keep an extra close eye on him. He got in trouble many times for running away, but it didn't seem to deter him. In fact, it only seemed to get worse during the week. He was so excited and wanted to see everything...still, that's no excuse. The listening proved to be a problem throughout the week. All in all, however, we had a great day. It was nice to be back in Cancun.

I love it when you wear skirts. You always look so pretty. I liked the red outfit you wore in Tulum too.
