*Postcards* From Mexico

We are finally back home~isn't it always great to sleep in your own bed after a trip?! Now I'm busy getting tons of laundry done (Vince has another trip at the end of this week!), grocery shopping, menu planning and catching up on house stuff in general. You know~all that back-at-home-from-a-trip stuff:) I wanted to share a few more pictures from our trip though. We had such a wonderful time!

In case you missed some of the other trip posts and want to catch up, you can read about our trip down and arrival here, the anniversary celebration for my parents here and our trip to the Mayan ruins here.
not our hotel, but one that I thought looked so charming

a countryside refreshment stop~Mexican Coke is so yummy!

Mexico is a beautiful country with warm and friendly people. It was so good to be back there again. If you've never visited there, I definitely recommend it!

What a beautiful trip!

My hubby has been to Mexico several times, but I have never. Even my parents have been twice since I got married. I am thinking I need to ask my hubby to take us sometime :)

Dad told me right before we left that he's stayed at that Hotel Alcatraz before.

How interesting! I'll have to ask him what it was like inside.
