We spent an amazing week in Cancun, stuffing our faces with all types of food, swimming in the ocean, getting free drinks, (also pizza, sushi, bbq pork nachos, you name it) on the beach along with the classic sunburn and a few minor jellyfish stings. Luckily, a nice man from Australia was there to help me out when I didn't know why there was a squiggly mark on my wrist and back :(
The nice place where we stayed
The ruins of Chicen Itza (or as I liked to call it, Chicken Pizza)
Viva La Mexico!!
El Enojado Medusa! (Kyle had to draw a picture to the health people at the resort because they didn't understand 'Jellyfish' or 'Medusa'...or just didn't know what we were talking about)
After that, we had a fun month and a half before leaving to cross the country. I'm so glad we had this time to be with each other's families more than we had been before and to get in one last good Utah summer, not knowing when we would be back.
It's What Fun Is - With Art and Becca at Lagoon on the eve of our departure.
At companion Gravy's wedding - and married one month!
The next morning we set sail for our cross country trip including a few selfish stops in the Missouri Independence Mission.
Our sad car....I'm so surprised we fit what we did. Every time we would stop to stay for the night, we'd pull out our bags and a perfect indentation of where they had been stayed there. Packed. To. The Brim.
Beginning a 7 day trek with our car scrapping up the highway.
On a beautiful spot of land in Lees Summit, Missouri. I would not mind living here some day. This was visiting one of the best families in the world, the Laudies! They let us take their four wheeler our for a spin.
A piece of my heart still lives in this place. Liberty Jail.
The beautiful Nauvoo temple.
After seven long days of travel, we finally made it to Washington, D.C.!
