Summer Trips- Cancun, Mexico

Back in May Sean and I got to meet up with our friends, the Mitchells, down in Cancun. It was so fun to see them, and also to get away from work and school. Our trip was filled, and thankfully we had our very own translator (Sean).

We took the bus to church, and without Sean here to correct me, I think it cost us maybe ten cents.

After sitting through the first two hours, I grew restless. It's hard to sit for two hours when you understand 3% of what is said. It was fun to be amongst such loving people.

We put in our applications to work at the fine, street side, barber shop.

Crystal's true colors came out when she found a bottle of spray paint on the side of the road.

We didn't even have to search for wildlife-- we practically tripped on it.

We went boating

When the music started, so did Crystal's dance moves-- our tour guide didn't wait too long to join her booty shakin moves.

We took a late night dip in the pool.

Sean and Scott learned how to sail.

We went snorkeling

There may or may not have been some smoochin....

We got some sun while eating ice cream in the sand.

We tried bartering, but may have paid more than we should have for these maracas.

We tried to set a new trend in the styling of hair with three lovely orange clips.

But Crystal soon changed her mind and got some braids.

So I copied her

We both agreed that my Medusa's needed shortened.

So we sat on the porch and burned my snakes down a bit.

We posed in the jungle

We posed in the waves

We posed in the sand

We wandered through Tulum before the rain came down in sheets

Did I mention that we posed in the sand?

We had girl talk

We peppered

We got beaten up by the waves

Buried by the sand

We may have flirted a bit with our spouses

I think our favorite part was posing in the sand

Our swimsuits tried to take most of the sand home

Scott won the sand contest, but in all fairness, his shorts had hidden pockets.

We ordered drinks from the pool bar.

We watched as they made Caesar salad dressing with raw egg- yuck!

We got tattoos, sunburns, and ruined our pedicures

Crystal is still trying to convince Scott that a tattoo wedding band goes much better with the hair profession.

We were able to do hair for a wedding party in Playa Del Carmen. It was a lovely wedding, and wonderful trip. If only we lived a little closer to these guys....

Oh, P.S. We took out our weaves

I tried to sleep carefully on my hair so that I could wear it to work the next day-- I must have slept soundly, cause it was not a pretty sight in the morning.
