beach..family photos..japanese [mexico day 4]

We were down a few family members for most of the day today. Tim and Carissa flew home last morning...and Dad and Mitch went to a place that had zip lines and water stuff. The rest of us managed just fine on the beach!!


The girls


The next two are some of my favorites...



Christian loves the water!! He didn't mind getting in the ocean with me to go swimming..when he would get splashed in the face with a wave, he wasn't very pleased. Either way, he likes to be in the water.


The food was really good. I'm not a huge fan of buffets usually..but here its different. There is a variety of things I like. I usually ended up getting the same thing at lunch time though...some kind of rice with steamed vegetables...it was SO good. Ben would always get a big plate of guacamole and fresh salsa to have with chips or whatever else was on his plate. Christian..well, his pickiness didn't stop just because we were on vacation..he did alright though. His favorite part was of course dessert...ice cream (which he didn't wait for a spoon for apparently)!


Nap time on the beach. Had we been here for many more days, I would've joined him instead of playing in the sand :)


This is the final sand castle #3...an octopus with a volcano on top...I didn't get a picture of my side..it was stairs and I don't know other castle-y type things.



I wanted some pictures of our family.
The last ones we have, were from 4 years ago when Ben and I got engaged.


(Mom was our photographer...thank you!)

Then we stayed down by the beach since we were already dressed for supper and took a few many more pictures. Here are a few of them...




That evening we went to the Japanese restaurant...who knew it was SO good. Ben was surprised that I liked it so much!! I'm telling you...I loved the sushi..but maybe its because I didn't know what was in there..it's all about the texture..and these weren't squishy and squirmy. Anytime we were eating, both Brent and Mitch decided they needed to pretend they knew more Spanish than what they really did...of course they are both ridiculous and they use Ben as their go to translator. A lot of phrases were overused..it was a bit amusing, and I'm sure the workers were at least slightly amused :)


Thanks to these lovely people we had a WONDERFUL family vacation :) 
Thank you thank you thank you!
