Last month, we decided to escape winter by taking a family vacation to the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico for a week. After only a three and a half hour direct flight from DC to Cancun, we then drove south to a beautiful resort in a tropical mangrove forest nestled along the beaches of the Caribbean Sea. We had so much fun! Our days were spent running back and forth with Maggie from the swimming pools to the ocean, while evenings allowed us to sample some tasty dishes made with fresh local ingredients. Maggie had a wonderful time splashing around in the pool with us and drinking out of coconuts. She also made friends with many of the other little boys and girls who happened to be staying at the resort as well. We love to travel and feel that it’s important to provide opportunities for our children to see the world and experience new cultures. But most of all, we want to do it together as a family. It was a lovely for us to have this time together as a family doing what we love the most - spending time laughing and having fun together. We look forward to many more trips like this in the future, hopefully someday soon as a family of four.
