Babymoon in Paradise

We just got back from the sweetest vacation to Cancun or as we like to call it Cunner. We went with our close friends Katie and Tim Johnson. It was so awesome going with a couple you get along with...sometimes hard to come by. We had such a fun time relaxing, exploring, getting tan, and eating amazing authentic Mexican foodThis is Katie and I at our amazing pool...yes those are built in lounge chairs in the pool. We spent the majority of our day there because though it looks windy it is bloody hot!
I had to take a picture of Ryan's shrimp cocktail because it looked so good and of course my doctor had to tell me I couldn't have any fish down there! Needless to say I was extremely jealous. This was at La Parrilla...so good but took walking through alleys and asking a lot of people (who thought we were crazy) to get there.Ryan made sure I put this picture because it clearly shows that he achieved "Total Domination" before this trip. Check out those love muscles. I look very similar don't you think? Not! At least I have an excuse. I think you can see my bump pretty good in this pic.
We drove these little speed boats in the ocean through small trees and bushes or as they like to call it "The Jungle." We cruised to a coral reef and got to do some awesome snorkeling. Awesome because 1.the water was so warm and clear 2. there were so many fish. We even saw a sting ray!This might have been my favorite part! We took a ferry over to Isla Mujeres and rented these little scooters. They went so fast! Unlike our broken speed boat.We rode around the tiny little island, had a much needed ice cream break and played at the beach. Are we tanner? Yeah and a little burned! We ate such good food that night at The Grill over looking the ocean at our hotel. Let's just say we had an ABSOLUTELY amazing time and we will always look back on this trip as our last one before we had kids! I highly recommend a Babymoon.(you can see more pics on Facebook)

I see a tummy! You both look great-nicely tan and relaxed. What a nice trip for you both!

Nikki, Cody, and Tessa said...

Yeah...I can see a very vague baby bump! Can't wait to see you guys in a week! Cody was saying how you two will be all tanned up, and we will be stark white! Actually, I've got a pretty sweet tan from walking every morning and playing at the park with Tessa but sweet tan lines too! You guys look nice and tan and relaxed...something that will never happen again with a child! ha.

Awesome trip! Looks like you got to do all the stuff in Cancun that we didn't get to do when we went forever ago. Well, we got to do the jungle but not Isla Mujeres and I really wanted to do that. Your bump is kinda non-existant, though. Can't wait to see you soon!

Love you!

I love the idea of the Babymoon! We did the Jungle cruise and it was way fun! Your hotel looks fabulous...and I could really go for those lounge chairs in the pool right now...our A/C went out and it's 100 degrees here in lovely Sac-town. So glad you had a great trip! Your bump is non existent for normal people...but I might detect something that's not normal for Kika:)

So sorry I was unable to get this done before your new post. Hopefully people will still check it out and comment about it. Tell me what you think and if you want more color. Feel free to change your font colors and all that. I just chose something I thought you would like. I can change whatever you want, no big deal!

So jealous of your Cancun trip! You both look tan and happy! I am ALL for a babymoon. Live it up while you can because vacations will never be the same! Can't wait to see you guys this summer.

Ryan and Erica said...

Yeah! Thanks for my new background and layout! I feel so hip! You are the best. I will have to take some more pics of my belly because since this trip it has grown even more.

Hello you two!! I am impressed by your blog. It kind of looks like fun. Maybe one day we will have to do the same. You two look great and we are soooooo excited for you to be parents. It is the greatest!! I am so jealous you got to go on a trip. I wish we could. Maybe one day when they make Mexico accesible :)

LOVE the blog. ryan looks like my brother dave in that picture- with his white shoes. i was about to say some racist comment here, but you get the point... welcome to blogging. you'll never leave your computer now. ;)
ps- PLEASE get rid of that horrid word verification for your comments. cant stand that.

Ryan and Erica said...

I didn't know you could. We are new to blogging...please fill us in.

Nikki said...

The word verification thing is horrid but I got my first "blogger spam" last week and so I went ahead and added the verification where before I didn't have it! I guess they can send out automatic stuff if you don't have the verification thing enabled. The verfication requires a human, I guess so that protects you from spam. So just wanted to let you know...you may want to keep it?

How's your adorable belly today? Love you muches!

Love the new background- I need to do something to mine but don't know how (atleast a cool new header). Anyways, looks like you guys had a blast and did a ton of fun things....things that will be difficult to do once you have a little one in the family. I can barely see a bump, but I'm sure it feels huge to you!
