Riviera Maya

So most of you know that we took our first-ever family vacation to Riviera Maya in Mexico in August. Yes, I know I say Cancun when I talk about it- it's much easier to type and say than Riviera Maya, and it's only about 20 minutes away, so quit your bitching.

Anywho, 2008 has been one of the most difficult years we've ever had (more on that later) and we decided to take a break. And it was amazing. But before we chat, let me give you a little tip- DON'T GO TO CANCUN IN MID-AUGUST.

It's hot. Really, really hot. And humid. Really, really humid. Like, there's no point in showering humid. Like, bring a headband because your head turns into a Q-tip humid. Seriously.

But, once you get used to sweat dripping down your butt crack, and once you realize you're never going to look like the 20-somethings boozing it up in the pool, it's so incredible. We did the all-inclusive thing and stayed at the Iberostar Del Mar and we couldn't have been any happier. Underground snorkeling in a cave, ATV rides through the jungle, a pirate battle on the Caribbean- your favorite family did it all. And, as a bonus, we got tan. Well, they got tan- I just got darker freckles. At this point, I'll take what I can get.

It was awesome, and we'd be thrilled to go back. Just not in mid-August.
