Their first look...


We arrived at our resort on the Mexican Riviera a week ago Sunday and these 2 couldn't wait to get to the beach....these were taken about 30 minutes before sundown.


This was Will's first time coming to the ocean with us...you can tell by the image below he was pretty happy to be there! The picture really sums up his larger than life personality. :)




He was testing the water here...

A thoughtful Grace taking it all in...



And my sandy girl with the ocean breeze in her hair...



Fortunately my kids love the beach as much as I do, my Summers were spent growing up literally on and in the water most of the time. Either at my Grandmother's cottage in Wisconsin or many Summers spent on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. To me there's nothing better than swimming, listening to the sound of the waves, and taking in the colors of the water and sand. We all had an amazing time in Mexico...Grace swam like a fish and William can now hold his breath under water, kick and swim a little to us. What was great about this trip was there was very little structure to the day, we pretty much went to the beach, swam a lot, the kids played in the sand, we had great Mexican food and drinks and went to the local town for some shopping. One day we did take the ferry over to Cozumel, rented a jeep(Will loved that jeep as you can imagine!), drove around the island and had dinner there. It was a relaxing week and the Mexican people are so gracious and kind....Grace and William made many friends. I've got more pics to post in the next week, so I hope you don't get tired of them. :)
