On a Mission....AF 2011

At the end of June, Blake and I flew to Mexico with 2 other couples.  We dub these trips "Adult Formals" in honor of the weekly trips we took in college for Pike Formal.  We spent 7 days and 6 nights at The Royal in Playa Del Carmen!  It was an amazing resort!!  We have done several all inclusive trips before, but this one was one of the best.  It was HUGE, had a great staff, the food was amazing, and the drinks equally as good :)
Picture of our room (yes, that is a huge hot tub in the middle of the room. crazy); view from our room; the maids must have thought it was our honeymoon because they decorated the bed every night!  It was cute!

We did a lot of lounging...and eating.  We took advantage of all the great restaurants on our resort.  We did venture out a time or two to see the local scene!  Everyone was so friendly (well, except when we went down a road with several clubs.  The guys on the street that were trying to get you to come to their club were a bit pushy, but I guess that is just the name of the game).  
A few snap shots from our first night there!

To sum up our trip: 
lots of eating
a drink or 2
lots of rain (sadly)
water volleyball
lounging on the 'stage'
lots of laughs
celebrating Blake's birthday 3 months late OR 8 months early (however you want to look at it)

Here are a few more pictures.  I didn't take nearly as many as I normally do!

This is what happens when you are the last person to show up to dinner!  We enjoyed a 'free' cake with our already 'free' meal :)  Thanks Kyle! 

Because the weather was not cooperating, we opted to go on an Excursion on Wednesday.  It was so fun.  We did 14 zip lines, swam in a cave, paddled through a cave, and rode 2 different ATV trails!  These are things I've never done proud that I did any of it!  It was a blast!
Tequila Time!

There were these 8 circles around part of the pool.  Perfect for all 8 of us.  So sad this picture did not come out clearer...we were heading to dinner on our last night!

Had a great time!  Already looking forward to doing it again in 2013 :)
