Mexico - Part II

My days all kind of run together as I'm looking back on the trip, but on this night there was a Disney show. 

At the resort, they had a kids club where they could play indoors in a daycare environment.  At the kids club, you could sign them up to participate in the nightly shows. Ava was in the Disney show. At the end of the show, you could go on stage and get your picture with the characters. When I asked Miles who he wanted his picture with, he said, "only Ava".

She even had rehearsal and hair & make up. She knew all her moves and rocked them on stage.

At the end of the show, they dropped balloons down from the ceiling. Such a little thing brought such happiness.

We played in the gift shop on the way back to our room.

The next day we decided to go into Playa Del Carmen for the day.

I was super happy to find a Mt. Dew.

Miles had $8 burning a hole in his Spiderman Duct tape wallet.  

After much deliberation, he landed with this, which closely resembles Sparkles and Little Penguin McClure. Both of them made the trip to Mexico in case you are wondering.  We now have a little penguin/raccoon family of three.  He named the new one Squirts, which is prophetic considering we bought him in Mexico.

We have visited Cozumel, and several Caribbean cities such as Belize, Dominica, Barbados, St. Thomas, Jamaica, etc.  I have to say that Playa Del Carmen was probably my favorite town. 

It was cleaner than most and had a nice mix of old and new.    

Aunt Crystal hooked the kids up with tattoos. 

As soon as he finished getting it he said, "I want another one."  And so it begins.

Miles broke out in some crazy dancing while we were walking around.  He said, "my moves are full uploaded."  Then he stopped and said, "Now they are downloaded."  We were cracking up.  Usually he gets embarrassed, but he was pretty confident in his moves.


Darrin, Miles, and I came back early afternoon to get in some pool time.

Miles developed a strong love for Shirley Temples on the trip.  I loved them at his age too.

The resort was really big...not sure if I mentioned that in my last post.  It was quite a walk between our rooms, the restaurants, the beach, and the pools.  We were able to catch a ride on a golf cart some times. 

Dinner that night was a Japanese restaurant.  It was our second favorite meal of the trip.

Miles tried sushi for the first time.  There were several different kinds and he seemed to like about half of them.  

We all skipped the show that night and just went back to the room for some much needed sleep.  That gets me thru the first 365 pictures.  I'll try to make it back one more time before our move.  Good night all!
