Mexico Trip

Last week, we went on a vacation to Mexico with Tim and Jen. We had a great, relaxing time... it seems like a dream now. I was, of course, a little nervous about leaving Taylor for the first time, but once we got there, I thoroughly enjoyed the break. Plus, Taylor was in extremely wonderful hands (Mom and Mike came down to Memphis for their spring break), so I knew I had nothing to worry about.

So we went to an all-inclusive resort south of Cancun called NH Riviera. It is brand-new, so we got an incredible deal on it... overall we loved it. They still have a few kinks to work out and need to hire a few more people, but it definitely exceeded our expectations. The facilities were beautiful...

During the day, we did nothing but sit by the pool, read, and eat. Brett and Tim couldn't sleep past 6, so needless to say, we got prime seats by the pool. Jen and I both have a love for hot dogs, so we'd usually get them from the pool grill and eat a huge pile of guacamole and pico with it for lunch. Classy, I know.

Brett should have given cheerleading a chance...

At night, we went to dinner, watched movies, and were usually in bed by 10. We tried the Asian, Mexican, International, and Italian restaurants.

We had a great time!!

6 Years!

We had our 6 year anniversary last week... it's hard to believe! Taylor spent the night away for the first time with Brett's parents. We had a great time... Brett was in charge of appetizers and I just had to take a picture of it, because he did such a good job on the presentation...

Afterward, we went to Fleming's Steakhouse for a yummy dinner and then went to the Orpheum downtown to see Legally Blonde, the musical.

Here are some updated pics of Taylor at 7 months... she got her bottom two teeth, can hold her own bottle, and is very close to crawling.

And here's a pic of the finished built-in TV/fireplace/desk/entertainment center that Brett built in our den. He finished most of it before Christmas, but just put the finishing touches on it this week. Project time is over in our house...yay!!
