We got home on Monday to a very cold and windy Kansas. It was a damp cold with a strong wind that cut right through you. The weather forecast for later this week is single digits.
Why is this all relevant? If you were interested you'd just go to weather.com and get all you need for anywhere. It matters to us because we just got back from 85 degrees in Puerto Morales, Mexico, just south of Cancun. 7 beautiful days with sun, sand, beach, pool and service fit for a king. But we do not just stay on the resort, we also love going to the local towns and eating and shopping with the local merchants. A trip to Puerto Morales and Playa De Carmen were great adventures and I will tell you the best local food must be eaten at local restaurants. It is so different to eat the local mexican fare from that area compared to the mexican food in KC. This is the first time we took a winter vacation to a resort where the climate was so opposite from what we left.
The main purpose of this trip was our daughters wedding. She got married on the beach and there were 21 of us there to celebrate the occasion. We now have 2 wonderful honorable and loving son-in-laws that treat our daughters as queens. What more could parents want.
We don't have wedding pictures, a friend went with us to take pictures of the wedding and we have not downloaded them from his camera. However we have posted our general vacation pictures on Flickr and if you want to see them they can be found at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/15120866@N05/sets/ If you want to see what we left look at Snow 2010 and then it was straight to Mexico 2010. As you can see, quite a shock to the system. All of that snow was still on the ground when we left.
The vacation was relaxing and our son did well. It is hard for dad at times to practice what I preach about his life is his responsibility but I am aware so it is a process of change.
I am still not caught up on all the blogs but I have scanned a few and I see the normal good news from some and bad news for others. I see my Blog Birthday wish I made before leaving is not working for all.
Trying to catch up so I am not going into a lot of other stuff. It is now vacation catch up time. Plus on Saturday we have a wedding reception planned for 200. It is for all of those not able to go to Mexico with up last week. We have a big family on both sides and we all love get together's and celebrations.
