Ek Balam

We had a long day our second day, we signed up for a tour through Almas Lds Tours.  Our tour guide Miguel was amazing and pretty much had the entire Book of Mormon memorized.  He took us to Ek Balam, Chichen Itza, and to a senote for some swimming.  I highly recommend him if you are in the area wanting to take a tour!  I learned so much and it was all fascinating.
First stop was Ek balam.   The was the oldest ruins we went to dating back to 100 bc. 
There are three walls dividing the city into 3 seperate parts......the temple is on the inside

Cancun day 1

 Just after arriving. 
 Mike's amazing parents watched our kids for us for a week so we could go to Cancun with the Batemans.  We had a blast...he first day was kinda rainy so we headed to Playa del Carmen to hit the town and beach.

 Mike was thrilled upon arrival to find our fridge fully stocked with glass bottle Cokes.  He insists they taste WAY better because of the pure cane sugar instead of corn syrup.

Family Disney day

 I couldn't help it after such an amazing disney day last week thought we would try again this week.  It was quite a bit busier but still not horrible.  We spent the whole day and got to go on almost every ride...

 Hanging out in the tiki room so we didn't have to wait in line to get Dole Pinnaple whip

 Savvy got SOAKING wet on splash mountain and it was pretty cold so she was glad to find one of my sweaters at the bottom of the stroller....

Disney for Sara's Birthday!

 We got to spend the day at Disneyland for Sara's Birthday.  Mike was off so I just took Coley and we had a blast.  We stayed all day and basically walked onto every ride.

 Eating our monte cristo sandwich and pomme frittes.....I don't care what anyone says Disneyland has amazing food!!  This is one of my favorite meals ever
 Waiting for the train....

 Meeting Mickey!
 Getting a better view of the parade
Walked straight onto dumbo.  First time that has ever happened...
Love spending quality time with this big guy!  He is so funny and smart he has me laughing non stop...
 Merry go round vision
