Vacaciones- Mexico 2016

Friday favourites is about Mexico today!

I’m back… from an awesome, super relaxing vacation with our family of four in beautiful Mexico…. I booked this vacay exactly one week before we came to see our new house--- otherwise, let me tell you, our little family would have been home all winter long!

But this vacation was much appreciated after all the stuff going on with our new home. Things just were taking so long to get done and we weren't finding solutions to some of our issues. Up to the day before we left, contractors were around doing stuff!  One night, our painter left at 10 pm! That coupled with Darin’s foot seriously acting up up until we were on vacation (wheel chair travel and crutches in Mexico for a part of our stay) had us seriously grateful for the week away.

So vacay (in the verb form), we did and it was simply lovely. We stayed at the Paradisus Cancun which was very kid friendly and spent most of our days at the pool and at the beach. We didn’t do much more than sit around, swim, lay in the sun, read, play with the kids, nap, go to some shows (with questionable content for the young minds but they loved it anyway), have our fair share of margaritas  and eat…

Oh the food! I thought I loved Mexican food before but I’ve come back home with a whole new appreciation for it. I’m slightly obsessed with  ceviche and there was this breakfast dish (chilaquiles verde) that I had after I discovered it.

A video is here--- don't know if it will work!

Here are just a few shots from last week. 


PS. I've also been very scarce as 1997 called asking back for its internet connection. Seriously, the internet in the new house is sooooo slow. I begin writing something- or commenting on the blogs of one of my lovely friends and it takes forever or totally drops the connection. We've had multiple technicians come out to try to fix it and after the last one it seems to be better so here's hoping it's fixed.

Have a fun weekend, friends. Mine involves a whole lot of nothing as I finally emerge from the pile of vacation laundry and next week is March break with the kids at home.

  6. Cancun looks amazing! What a great get away. Yes, the food is always sooo good. It seems like the memory does no justice for the food until you get to experience it again.

    Bummer about your husband's foot and having to use crutches or a wheel chair.
