Our trip to Cancun 2014

We just returned yesterday from Cancun, Mexico. We were fortunate enough to go with my in laws and brother in law's family. So in total, it was 6 adults and 3 children under the age of 8. 

Jeff and I were in Cancun in 2010 for a honeymoon. We loved it and always wanted to return. We thought it would be in ten years from now and renew our vows. But we went this year.

Jeff and Laura were so excited that they packed two weeks in advance.  I packed a little less than a week before.  Jeff packed Jason and I made sure Laura had enough. I tend to overpack but I don't care. I rather have too much than too little. On this trip, I felt we all had just enough.

Taking two kids are a lot different than just us. Making sure everyone had all needs met, enough diapers, enough toys, enough snacks, enough extra what if clothes...just enough. When we went, I just wanted to pack the most attractive clothes that I had. 

Flying with a disability isn't as crazy as some might think.  It takes some thought, some patience and a lot of deep breaths.  I have a travel motorized wheelchair which was perfect.  It closes easily and much, much lighter than my quantum.

The night before we left, I could hardly sleep. It felt like Christmas Eve. If you know me, you know I do not like flying. I was more excited than anxious so that was good.  We woke up at 6 and got ready. Then we got the kids ready, ate some breakfast and waited for his parents. They were coming with us to the airport.

The temperature felt like two degrees. We were all excited to get out of the obnoxious cold.  It's been the coldest winter in such a long time. 

Stay tuned for more.
