As this was our final full day in Mexico...I feel like we made the most of it!
I had to get a picture of Jonah with his friends...he liked almost all the waiters. Probably because they really liked him. I couldn't believe that he went to them so easily. Ivan and Erik were are servers every morning...they were always very friendly and accommodating.
After breakfast, we went down to the beach and Dad, Christian and Noah got started on making the
mound mountain as the base for the last sand castle.
Tim & Carissa and family, Brent & Alyssa and family, and Ben & I walked down the beach to Playa del Carmen. We walked around to some of the shops for a short bit, and then walked back. There's nothing quite like going for a walk along the ocean...we certainly don't have a view of that back home.
When we got back to 'our' beach...Dad had stayed at building the sand castle base. It was HUGE!!!!!
For quite some time after that, many of us participated in shaping and forming the sand castle.
Brent and Ben create the animals. Dad is quite the sand castle go-to man....if you need something ie; water, leveling off, shovel he will get it done, as well as add his own creations and talk to the spectators as they come and go. Carissa, Alyssa, and I added the drizzle effect and the shape like/number additions to the castle. We each contribute...however, Brent & Ben should get a little extra credit for creativity and Dad for the brunt work.
All 19 of us by the sand castle...
We relaxed a bit in the pool, before getting ready for the next big thing...family pictures on the beach!!
