A bit about Vacation

Vacation was so much fun!! We started out in Texas first visiting my favorite Aunt. I had not seen her in 3 years and so it was great to get time with her. I was able to spend time with a cousin and his wife that I had not seen in about 10 years.
Next it was off to San Antonio to visit friends and some sightseeing. We of course had to do the River walk filled with shops and restaurants. Of course we had to visit the Alamo as well. We also visited a few of the other San Antonio missions which were my favorites. There is so much history there

The Alamo

These were paintings discovered under years of dust and grime
After a week of visiting family, friends and sight seeing it was off to Cancun for a week
All I can say about that was AHHH! Hubby and I have never had a two week vacation and never in all of our married life, 2 weeks away just the 2 of us. We have had many vacations over the years but always with children or friends. This time it was just us two and  It was A-MA-ZING
A peek at the resort we stayed at

Hubby enjoying a mango margarita (gotta love happy hour)

Yes that's a crocodile  on the way to the pool

A beautiful view of the caribbean sea

We had all these plans before we got there, to do so many things, but the resort was so beautiful and the water breathtaking, as you can see. We ended up mainly spending the time on the beach in the warmth of the sun and the joy of each others company.  We ate wonderful food, did a bit of  shopping in Playa Del Carmen, laughed , rested and relaxed, oh and did I mention the Mango Margaritas : )
One of our best Vacations by far.


  1. Sounds like the two of you had an awesome time:)


  2. Looks wonderful Debbie! I've always wanted to go to San Antonio and see Riverwalk because photos of it always look so beautiful! So glad you were able to have such a wonderful vacation!

  3. It sounds like you had a great time, Debbie! The resort looks wonderful; I'm sure all of us who were left behind in the snow are jealous! {Well, I am}!

  4. FUN, FUN, FUN! I love spending time away with my honey too! Sounds like you had lots of fun with the family, sightseeing and relaxing in Cancun!

    Have a blessed day, thanks for sharing your vacation with me! HUGS!

  5. How exciting it is to just get away just the two of you. Was so glad to hear that your Cancun trip was great. We cancelled ours for January, we were taking our daughter but I just wasn't sure about saftey this time. We are to go back this fall. Last time there we stayed at the Gran Principle in Tulum, we loved it. Can I ask where you both stayed, it's always good to know what places are good and what isn't. Have a wonderful rest of the week. Hugs, Jolyn
