Spring Break in Cancun

We headed South for Spring Break this year...not much further South, but just enough to get fabulous, white, sandy beaches! We met up with some of Blake's family and stayed at an all-inclusive family resort. We spent loads of time at the pool. There was a pirate ship pool with slides and a ship...the main reason we picked this hotel...the kids wanted nothing to do with it!The kids wanted to paint ceramics...every afternoon! A private LDS tour of Chitchen-Itza. Temple of the Bearded White God. Cousins, Cousins, Cousins! Swimming hole outside after the tour.This was a beautiful spot. We were literally in a deep hole with water at the bottom and vines climbing all the walls. The guys went deep sea fishing for sail fish. Everyone caught one, including Blake...but he didn't get his photo op because he pulled his fish in by the head and it was dead, so they would pull it up...this is the only shot of his catch. Shoulda, coulda had a shot like this!
Lots of lounging around, swimming, eating candy, reading, massages, and sipping fruity drink after fruity drink. Deesh even snuck into our room for a couple of nights...but somehow snuck out of every photo! Time to start planning for next year! Maybe we can get all of the Holidays to join us!

Houston Rodeo

This is the first year ever that we went to the Houston Rodeo, and didn't go to the rodeo or show! Blake wasn't about to miss out on the carnival food and Sam wanted to see the animals, so we spent a Saturday afternoon playing and eating.
These two get into more trouble together...
Ferris Wheel! This girl just loved this one! I am a bit surprised that she didn't get scared.
This is Sam pretending to be upset.
The best part of feeding the animals was the hand sanitizer afterwards. Sam spent a lot of time washing her cute little hands.
