Cancun Part 1.......because I have too many pictures

I am going to enjoy reminiscing about our Mexico trip while writing this post.  Just this morning Nora asked if we can go back to "the hotel on the beach in Mexico".  Scott told her yes one day we can go back and she went to er closet and started packing:).

We all had a great time and enjoyed some time in the sun.
We stayed at the Beach Palace in Cancun and had a great experience at this resort.  
Of course the kids had to go for a night swim the day we got there.  We had a beautiful view from the 17th floor bar and pool.
Our first morning waking up with an ocean view.  Hannah and my mom shared a room and then the rest of us were in another room.
Our first day there was also Hannah's 8th birthday.  They decorated our room for her and brought a piece of chocolate cake
It was really windy most of the time and the flags by the ocean were red a lot, but the kids enjoyed the waves when they did change the flags to yellow.
These two loved the ocean and the waves.  Nora was not so sure and would have rather spent her time in the pool.
We quickly got used to the "all inclusive" lifestyle and spent lots of time at the bar, the restaurants, the coffee and ice cream shop ect......Hannah also enjoyed calling down for room service a little too much.  I think she ate a hamburger for every meal we were there.
Enjoying a Mojito on the beach.
The staff at the Beach Palace was incredible nice and attentive.
This was our hotel
Hannah and Evan really enjoyed the Playroom and all their activities.  They made every single craft possible and we almost needed another suitcase just to bring all of theirs crafts home.......oh and there was a lot of glitter involved.  We will be traveling with glitter in our suitcase for a long time to come.

Nora was not old enough to stay in the Playroom by herself, but she enjoyed a lot of their activities with one of us staying in there with her.
Here she is dancing with the "Entertainment Team"
And all three decorated cupcakes
And played "Space Ball".
If there was an activity by the Playroom or Entertainment Team our kids were the first ones in line. After a couple of days they were well known around the resort and everywhere we went we heard "Hi Hannah" or "Hi Evan and Nora" from the staff.

Some more beach time
The food at the restaurants was really good.  
Dinner time at "Wok"
Trying on sombreros at the gift shop while waiting for dinner.  
I have a couple of quotes from the kids that I don't want to forget.

Hannah asked if Carlos is the national name of Mexico.

Evan always says "tennis ball" when jumping in the pool instead of "cannon ball".  Makes me laugh every time.

Evan also asked "Can I marry you Hannah?"

Next up was our day trip to Isla Mujeres and swimming with the Dolphins.
