Mexico: The Pool Edition

Our trip could have been divided into fours, A quater of the time is spent at the beach, quater at the pool, quater of it eating and a quater of it sleeping. Here is some pictures from the pool part. Becuase there wasn't a big beach at the resort they made the pools great. Plus there were great fun club and kids club staff who was lots of fun.

Lucas and Nathan in the kids pool.

Lucas became quite the fish on this trip. His record for holding his breath was 10 seconds and he would jump right under the water and swim. It's amazing how a week in the pool can improve someone's swimming skills.

One of our favorite things to do in the pool was use these intertubes and float around. Or push Lucas around.

In another one of the pools there were deep sections with seats. Kind of like hot tubs in the pool but they weren't any hotter then the other water. Lucas liked to slide down the poles of them like he was a fireman.

Mexico was also good for my parenting pysche. It was great to spend the whole week with the kids and although I enjoyed a many of mojitos, the trip was really focused on them. Darryl and I each slept with one of them and our schedules revolved around their schedules. But we also had a lot of fun playing with the kids. And people noticed and told us. It is always nice when a stranger goes out of their way to tell you what a great parent they think you are. One couple who was by the pool said I had "mother" written right across my forehead. It's so nice to know that people think I'm doing a good job, and good enough that they take time to tell me so.

Till Tomorrow
