Last Stop: Cozumel, Mexico

I'm feeling sad and missing my family already looking at these last pictures. I was so sad to say goodbye to my family--especially knowing my sister and her hubby would be moving away with two real jobs to Oregon forever. Okay maybe not quite forever--but a long time. I loved waking up and knocking on everybody's door, going to work out with my mom & sister, having almost every meal with the entire family together, eating soft-serve ice cream cones one after another with Bryan. The list goes on and on.... Although we did miss Jason and hope his new job will let him come on the next one!

Anyways, Cozumel was another one of my favorites. Gorgeous beaches and it is MEXICO! I can't believe I didn't get a picture of our topless, red jeep we rented. It was so perfect for cruising the island. Here I am with the kiddos in the back. I put Heather up front with Jared so I could buckle the kids in with me.

We drove to the opposite side of the island to the "unspoiled beaches." They were unreal. We spent a few hours at this one that had rocks building almost a little cove for swimming. It was perfect for the kids.

After that beach, we hopped back in the jeep--and let Grey drive a bit. Yeah we are terrible parents like that. I did it through the desert in Egypt growing up and it was awesome. We went to eat some Mexican food at another beach and then hung out there until it was time to head back.

It was really hard to get back on that boat knowing we were heading back to cold New Orleans then back to real life. But another gorgeous sunset helped a little bit.
