Isla Mujeres

There is an island across from our resort called Isla Mujeres and the ferry dock was right by our resort, so on Sunday we got on the ferry and rode over to the island.  It was about a 40 minute ferry ride and while we were walking on the dock to board the ferry we saw a barracuda in the water.  It was kind of freaky thinking we weren't swimming that far away from were we saw it.  The water was so gorgeous and blue you could see all kinds of fish.  When we got on the island we rented two golf carts and spent the day driving all around the island.  All you saw was golf carts and scooters and a few cars here and there.  The beaches were pretty, but you also saw a lot of trash and poor circumstances.  It's kind of sad to see how so many people live and we have such a good life.  We also saw iguana's every where.  We walked down the main strip and stopped in several stores to find all the things the people sale.  There is everything from jewelry to hats, to sunglasses to clothing and much more.  It was a fun, relaxing day and we got back just as the sun was setting around 8 o'clock..

Such beautiful water!

It was a little windy up on the cliffside.

Our Resort In Cancun

We arrived in Cancun at 4 a.m. Saturday morning after a long night of flying from Las Vegas to Mexico City, a 3 hour lay over and into Cancun.  When we got to Cancun we found a taxi and it was about a 20 minute drive to our resort from the airport.  We didn't stay on the main hotel strip where it was crazy because of spring break.  We stayed clear out in a resort that was by it's self and it was really beautiful and private.  The beach wasn't quite as pretty and clean as downtown, but it was nice being away from all the craziness and we had our own restaurants to choose from.

The beach had a lot of seaweed and the water wasn't as clear right
in front of our resort, but I love the beach and the ocean no
matter what and I was able to see other areas where it was
so clean and gorgeous and our resort was beautiful and I
was just happy to be in paradise!

This was our view from the top of our resort.

This kitchen is as nicer or nicer than mine.

I have wanted to go to Cancun for about 6 years and have heard how beautiful the ocean is there.  About two months ago I was thinking we probably wouldn't be doing anything for spring break because we are trying to save money to build a house.  Then Tianna started saying we should go somewhere and before I knew it she had found plane tickets to Cancun for $213 round trip.  We couldn't pass that up, so we booked our tickets and found a place to stay and booked 8 nights.

Our Favorite Time Of Year

We love the parade of homes in St. George.  It's become an annual event that we all look forward to in February.  This year was a little more crazy than last year with me doing nails and school, so I planned to take the whole day Friday and Saturday to spend looking with Jayson and ended up working until 2.  We headed out and were still able to see quite a few homes and were back at it Saturday.  Jayson's school friend's daughter and her family were passing through town so we took them to dinner.  Lacey Schwope and her husband and 3 darling little girls.  I got to hold the brand new baby the whole time.  It was hard to find a place to eat in this town between parade of homes and soccer tournaments, it was horrible.  We finally settled for Chili's.  Jayson and I saw a few more homes on Sunday and then Monday I had school off for President's day and Teisha hadn't seen any homes yet.  I didn't want her to go alone, so I bought me and Tianna another ticket and we spent all of Monday going with Teisha.  We even dragged Jayden along for part of the day and then came home and ordered pizza.  What a fun weekend.  I love spending time with my family.  Sorry for the picture overload, but you gotta love beautiful new homes.
This is a cool coper tub!

Old people master suite with separate beds.  I'll never
sleep in separate beds.  No way!

This house had a huge trophy room and a huge room
for all the animals this professional hunter hilled.  It was unreal.

Monkeys on the wall.

Had to have an armed cop on duty so that people didn't get
to mad at the guy for killing all these.

He has hunted and fished everywhere.

See the animal heads in the corner of his living room?

This backyard was my favorite.  This is my dream
sanctuary.  I live for the outdoors in St. George.

Love this rock and brick.


This would be hard to keep clean, but so beautiful.

I love fireplaces in bathrooms and master suites.

Cute bunkbeds.  What a fun grandkid hangout.

More fun.

Pretty master.

Love this cozy kitchen.

This was the coolest playhouse built in the basement with a slide,
ladder, and lots of little hiding places inside.

Jayden tried to act like he wasn't having fun,
but he loves us girls.

My kind of dining room.

All the trophies from the hunter.


Love these cute girls of mine.

The biggest parade home this year with over 7,000 square feet.
