4th of July...in MEXICO!

What a better way to celebrate the 4th of July than taking a trip to Mexico?! We had 3 1/2 full days soaking up the sun at the beach, relaxing, eating, drinking, and just having a BLAST! There were 18 of us and never a dull moment. We stayed at the Iberostar Lindo in Playa Paraiso, halfway in between Cancun & Playa Del Carmen...my parents and I have stayed here twice before (in 2004 & 2006) and it did not disappoint! Justin brought up an interesting point...this is the first "relaxing" vacation we've really gone on (other than Caribbean cruises) so we decided another tropical relaxation vacation is in our near future!

Just a little glimpse of paradise
