An Amazing vacation!

We took our annual family vacation! this time we went to Cancun!!

The kids found someone to do loom bands with at the airport!! :)

after a hard day of traveling we all crashed!!
(we did not get Danny's roll away bed till the next day )
 We rented a car and drove to Akumel and swam with the turtles!!! It was amazing! We hooked up with an amazing man, Guillermo, who invented ezsnorkel for people with disabilities so they can snorkel.
here are the kids with all the helpers!!

Gerri LOVED it!!!
We saw many many turtles, lots of fish and several old cannons. All of the kids did great! we swam for hours!
Then we had so much fun with Kat, who took us around Akumel:
swam in a Cenote!!

went into caves!

the boys eating SPICEY jabaneros!! :)

Got serenaded!

Had a delicious fruit flower for dessert!

We came out one day from breakfast and saw these beautiful hawks!

Waiting at the airport! Found someone to make bracelets with!

We rented a car to do some sightseeing :) so tiny!

First night and totally exhausted!! Danny had to sleep on cushions since the rollWay came the next day
We drove down to akumal and met up with an amazing group ezsnorkel, that helps people with special needs and disabilities. For the first time Gerri and Danny were able to snorkel!! We saw lots of fish, turtles, cannons. Loved it!! Thanks to Jeri Sayer for hooking us up!! Guillermo, you are amazing!!!!
We were treated like royalty! And as soon as I develop the underwater camera I will post the pics. Ezsnorkel posted some on their fb page :)

Then Kat drove us around their little neck of the woods, and we swam in Cenotes!! It was amazing!!

The girls swam and swam!

Then Kat took us to a cave with a Cenote and Bats!! So so cool!

There were a couple of boys splashing water at the bats and getting them to fly all over!

Then Kat took us for an authentic lunch!! Yummy!

She dared Dan and Danny to eat some habenero's! Danny refused to admit they were spicy! Even with his eyes watering :)

Danny loved being with Ms. Kat!

Dessert time!!

A papaya flower!!

And the ride home!

We only got stopped by the police twice :) luckily we had no idea they wanted bribes so we we're let off both times. And we were not speeding at all, but it was obviously a rental car.

Easter Sunday was amazing!
We got all dressed up and went to services at a beautiful open air church.
We thought it was going to be in English, but it was in Spanish and it was beautiful!

They had some hawks at the resort so the kids got some education!

The kids played some water volleyball!

We gave some grapes to this cutie!
The weather has been amazing!
