I made friends with an Iguana...

There haven't been any asthma attacks for a couple days now, so it has turned into a really great, relaxing vacation. The girls have been extremely well behaved, and basically have kept themselves occupied non-stop since we got here. I like that we are secluded enough that I can kind of let them do as they please and not worry too much. There are lots of little tide pools and fun things nearby, and it is nice to not have to watch them every minute to make sure they are OK.

Seriously...I got all kinds of comments the other day, and not one person said anything about The Brain Surgeon...Lol. He was easily the MVP of the day, and I feel like no one else was willing to give him his props:-) I guess he doesn't need any props since he gets to wake up with Big Sis every day for the rest of his life, but still... Show the guy some love, people!!!

We did a super fun thing today! If you are ever in this part of Mexico, take a day to go to Xel-ha and hang out...especially if you have kids you need to entertain. It is a really big, natural lagoon that has been turned into an "eco-water park". It is kind of like being at an amusement park, only instead of rides, there is a big inlet to snorkel in. It definitely has like a more interactive Sea World feel to it.

I don't know if all of the fish are naturally there, or if they feed them to get more of them in the lagoon, but it is really cool. The whole thing is probably like 10 feet deep or less, so if you just putter around, you can see TONS of really bright-colored, pretty fish. There are also like random iguanas walking around the on-land areas, which is kinda cool.

And there is some neat stuff like a waterfall you can jump off, some really beautiful caves, and an area where you can pet and ride dolphins (didn't do that.) There are also hiking and bike trails and you can rent kayaks, but we didn't do any of that stuff, either. Mostly, the girls swam and snorkeled a lot and chased fish around...Lol.

It was loads of fun...Smoking Hot Roommate and I took the three girls and everyone else stayed back at the house. The boys made dinner for all of us, because they are super nice and like us all so much:-) And because guys get really possessive if there is a grill involved. Munchkin and her friends all crashed right after dinner and went to bed almost an hour ago (it is like 8:30 now.)

I doubt I will be up real later, either. All that activity tires a girl out! And we have another early day tomorrow...we are going to see the Mayan Ruins inland, which I think is a longer drive. It is probably gonna be absurdly muggy and hot, but that will give me a great excuse to accost The Boy in the shower when we get back:-D

I doubt I will blog anymore from here, but you never know;-) I have to check emails, so I will check and post comments at least once a day, and I may write a quick note to shout out to whoever is my historic 5,000th visitor sometime tomorrow!!!

I love water parks! And one that is all natural and isn't gross and slimy sounds lovely. I'm glad you guys are having a fun vacation.

Aaron said...

If The Brain Surgeon was so talented, he'd be your 5000th visitor! :P

Iguanas scare the crap out of me.

DIMPLES said...

I"m the 5000th visitor!!! I rule

Tasha said...

Glad to hear you're having a great time and there are no more asthma attacks!

Yay for the Brain Surgeon! =)

Ally - I am not really sure what to call it...but I guess a "natural water park" is the best description. It's really neat!

Aaron - A fair point...

Ella - They are kinda scary...and sort mean, too! And you don't see them until you almost step on them!

Dimples - Really close, but you were #5001. #5000 is someone from Dayton Ohio who searched Google for "suing people in funny ways" and found me. Seriously...

But you still rule:-)

Tasha - Yea, one of those is plenty for one vacation.

On the bottom of the page is said 5000 to me. I should have saved it and emailed it to you.

Accidentally Me said...

Povosgirl - Yea, I think that means that there have been 5,000 before you and you are #5,001. It is kind of misleading...

Am!! I love Mexico. Well, I LOVE Cancun anyway. I went to Cancun last July / August and fell in love with the Yucatan. Have you seen my Meh-hee-coh pics? I can't wait to go back. I did not go to chichen itza because it was way too hot to climb that thing... so we opted for things to do on the water.

Omg, your vacation sounds amazing, I'm so jealous!
