The long awaited Royal Palms
So the night of the wedding we stayed at this sweet resort in Scottsdale called The Royal Palms and its too bad we couldn't spend more time there cause it was amazing. You have an individual villa complete with courtyard and everything. It was sad we only spent a whole 8 hours there...They made a killing off us haaa, but all worth it considering it was for our wedding.
From there we took off from Phoenix to Cancun! The flight wasn't too bad and the only thing that went wrong was when I was playin with my wedding ring and flipped it back a few aisles. I found it. So we get to Meh-he-ko and it was seriously better than we even expected. The people were right there to pick us up and we got to the hotel in no time. We even had this flippin weird couple there that we could talk about...I mean talk to. Seriously the dude looked like Leonardo DiCaprio off of Catch Me If You Can and his girlfriend was a beast. You had to be there to really enjoy the sight of these guys...I'm not even tryin to be mean. It was all entertainment to us!
So our hotel was tight! It was the Sun Palace and it was all-inclusive... so from the moment we got there the eating began...and it never freakin stopped, I kid you not. They had 5 really good restaurants there, a 24-hour buffet, and 24-hour room service...ALL INCLUDED!!! Not to mention the fridge in your room all stocked with Mexican Coke, bottled water and even my favorite... Jose Cuervo, XX and Corona baby! OK so the 'hard stuff' we didn't touch. People couldn't believe we wouldn't drink there, they kept sayin, "You know it’s free right?!?" But so was the Mexican Coke and they kept that comin so we were happy. Lauren even got a little crazy and ordered a Banana Monkey cause she heard someone else order it haha. "Do you think it has alcohol?", she asked me. Um... Any drink that has a name will light you up... so she yelled "Virgin!" and I think the waiter must have thought she was havin a rough honeymoon cause she yelled that so loud around all the other honeymooners around the pool... but he got the drink right so maybe not. But for real, there was never a time when we were 'not full'. Right when we felt like we weren't sick from eating we ate some more... it was the best. And by the way, I'm still down 5 pounds from the wedding, yep. IAFA. I could drop another ten.
Snorkling like champs
The next day we went to Chichen Itza and it was so dang cool. We read in Mormon and Moroni about the culture the Nephites and Lamanites, so when we got off the bus and checked out all the sights and temples it was so easy to see that that was where they lived. There was Mormon stuff everywhere in the design of the buildings. I even bought a Kishkumen obsidian dagger! And while we were there it was the only time it rained our whole trip! We had the best weather ever...and in the middle of hurricain season. But the rain came at a good time, it was getting hot and the rain came down like a full-blast shower. Drenched. That bus smelled amazing on the three hour ride home...especially from a couple rows back where Capitan BackHair was sitting.
The rest of the time in Cancun we spent on the beach drinkin virgin pina coladas and banana monkies, watching the Olympics screamin our faces off for Michael Phelps, cruisin around downtown Cancun, and we even went Parasailing on Saturday which was so dang fun. Its the coolest feeling being so high up there with just the two of us lookin out on everything and seeing the fish swimming beneath us.
The whole trip was better than we could’ve hoped for. We had a blast together, saw so many cool things, relaxed on amazing beaches in perfect weather, ate our weight in free food, and just had a great time. I think we spent a total of $50 the whole trip! And that was cause we went to Planet Holleywood downtown for lunch. The room was sweet and the hotel and beach were so nice. I know I didn't post any beach pictures...I was forbidden. Lauren shouldn't have worried cause she looks amazing in a swimsuit, but I guess at the same time it saved me from showing the results an "all-you-can-eat" resort had on my body too, so thanks hun. Although we were sad to come home it was kinda time, ya know. It was nice to have that time just to ourselves, but it was exciting to see family and friends again and start our life together. I think we need to do a honeymoon every year!...Well at least until little rugrats get in our way!
