It's Official

We booked the tickets last night and I am SOOOOO excited.  We are going to Cancun in September!  (Actually our hotel is in Playa Del Carmen, not Cancun). I have been to Canada once and other than that have not been outside of the country, I have my little passport just waiting for a stamp and now I will finally get one (even if it only is Mexico).  We were on the phone with our friends Jim and Mel last night for quite some time picking the best price/best vacation combo and we finally settled  on where we are going and we can't wait!  Jim and Mel live in Oregon and we haven't seen them in quite awhile so we are really excited to go on a vacation with them.  It will be short, but we decided we will pack as much as we can into our 5 day, 4 night stay, we even have the same flight into and out of Cancun so it works out perfectly.  Lets all just hope that there aren't any hurricanes in the area while we are there!!!!  I have also never stayed all-inclusive which I am really excited about.  Oh, and did I mention, we are going without our kids...I love it!

This weekend we have our trip to Red River Gorge with Matt and Camie, and Rob and Holly and all of our respective children, we are really excited and I promise I will actually post some pictures!

Now that our vacations are beginning I promise I will get out of my blogging stupor and I will post some of the things that I am so far behind on, maybe tomorrow I will get the pictures up from my parents' trip here.

We are REALLY excited too.

Did you hear about the US State Department Travel Advisory for Americans in Mexico? That's exciting!

Ok, I was really excited for you until I saw the post by Jim and Mel. What is up with that?

You will have been to one more country than I have. More power to you. I am going to have to get on the passport thing just in case and opportunity arises!

WHOO HOOO!! How exciting. I would love to do something like that. I don't think anyone would be willing to watch my brood though for that long. How awesome!!

I am jealous. But I guess if you look at it we take "vacations" every four to six months we just drag all our stuff around with us. HE HE HE. we hope you have a lot of fun while you're there.
