It's hard to believe we've been home for 12 days...
Grace and Will keep asking when we're going back.
We swam every single day and they miss that very much.
These are from when we went into the nearby town of Playa del Carmen
one afternoon for some shopping, a long walk and lunch.
I captured things that caught my eye whether it was colors or patterns or just something that spoke to me of Mexico.

Every year at the beginning of Summer
I think we have so much time ahead of us and it always flies by!
It's been a fun one.
Can't believe school will start for us soon. (Sept.1)
 I think we're about ready. :)

Looks like such a wonderful vacation. I was there a few years back and had a blast. These pics could have been in a travel brochure. They made me want to go back.

Gail I'm ready to hop on a cruise ship and sail right over to Mexico right about now. Your pictures are gorgeous and so bright with color. It's amazing how different the scenery is there. You can tell exactly where you were visiting with these photos without even telling us.

Yes, summer has flown by here too. As you already know, I'm ready for summer to come to an end. I think the kids are too. Next week is the start of school for us. We have all our school supplies ready and will be going to sleep extra early this weekend in preparation. Enjoy your last days of summer....

Gail, I love the way you really captured the flavour of Mexico and your fun time there. Memories - fun making them and we can re-live them anytime we want.

Enjoy the last litle scrappings of our summer. I know we're trying to.
