We had about an hour drive from the airport to the hotel. Harvey fell asleep about 10 minutes into the drive which was nice. He had a second wind by the time we showed up. Everyone was waiting for us at one of the restaurants, The Seaside Grill. We were starving. They had amazing bread and a yummy pesto-like dipping sauce. Harvey got whisked away by cousins and he discovered the mini golf course, the highlight of the whole vacation for him. We spent the majority of our resort time there!
|I don't think they quite had our room all finished because I'm pretty sure those pillows weren't supposed to be stacked on the couch...|

|One of my personal favs|
|Bartering for Rolex's|
|They had free short little SCUBA lessons in the pool. Need to get T certified now :)|
|Harv had a blast sitting/playing on this mat. Also he really enjoyed watching the dancers :)|
The next day we hired a Mormon tour guide that does tours to Mayan ruins. We had a private bus for all 19 of us and headed out for Tulum in the morning. He was awesome. During the drive he did lots of explanations about culture and the architecture and had a lot of scriptural references for it. I really thought it was fascinating. I have a million pictures so I'm just going to throw them in here.
|Man he cracks me up. He loved having the goggles on his head!|
Thursday was Tanner's birthday! Woo hoo! We had room service breakfast (a little late and not quite the surprise I was hoping for, but we got cake too!)
Friday we spent most of our time at the pool. Harvey actually hung out in the pool for a LONG time - doing his belly flops and playing with the ball. We took a good nap that day and then ate at the only restaurant we hadn't ate at, El Patio. That was our last night (Clare and Berrie had left a day early for the funeral). Here's the rest of some random, but necessary (haha) photos...
Although it was kind of an exhausting vacation with a busy toddler, it was so much fun to spend time with family, eat good food, be in the warm weather and make some amazing memories! And congratulations for getting to the end of this :)
