Holiday Part 1 - Mexico

We had an amazing holiday over Easter, and I'm so glad we decided to do it. We'd always said we would go and visit our friends in Houston before they came back to the UK & suddenly, nearly 3 years had slipped by and it looked like they would be coming back this summer. So we asked if we could come and visit over Easter. Then I found out I was pregnant...

But as my previous 2 pregnancies were both super-healthy right to the very end, I decided we should still go, despite me being 30 weeks pregnant on the way out, and 32 weeks by the time we flew back! Instead of doing lots of sight-seeing & travelling about, we thought it better to spend a week in Mexico at a luxury all-inclusive type hotel & have a bit of relaxing family time & then a week with our friends in Houston.

It worked out perfectly, and we all had a wonderful holiday :)
Here are some pics of our holiday in Mexico:

The walk from our room to the rest of the hotel facilities - reminded us of our honeymoon in the Maldives...

The walk to breakfast

Lots of wildlife to see on the walk to breakfast

The pool area

Pool area

Lots of fun in the pool every day

Littlest could be found like this most days by the pool - he does enjoy an afternoon nap still, despite being 4!

The beach, right next to the pool area - amazingly blue water and white silky sand

Our view from the sun loungers one day - the boys preferred to sit by the pool

Our view from breakfast one day from the beach terrace restaurant

Towel sculptures left by the cleaners - a different one every day which the boys loved!

A family pose!

Happy Days!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Caz! Yes, it was a fantastic holiday. Not the sort of holiday we will be able to do for a few years now, until our imminent arrival is much older anyway!

  2. What a wonderful family holiday! Love the photos of the beach&blue skies and your boys playing in the pool--they had fun! x
