It was definitely out of our “family comfort zone” as a vacation destination, but we ended up having a blast. Georgetown Boy and his family had gone over Christmas break and we were completely inspired by the pictures we saw on Facebook. And we signed right on up for spring break! (How lucky that Sporty Sister and I had the same week off?)
[warning: picture overload!!!]
It was overcast, a little chilly, and super windy on the day we arrived. I was a little worried I was going to have to wear the chambray popover and white jeans the whole trip! (I didn’t pack any long sleeved shirts or pants.)
Mojitos on the deck.
We took a little excursion to the jungle!!!
We went snorkeling in the cenote. It was freezing (hence Soccer Mom’s face….), but so much fun!
The whole family underwater.
Ready to zip line!!!
so much fun.
Still trying to figure out how I am the shortest in the family and also the palest…. doesn’t seem quite fair.
Then we went off to Tulum, the Mayan city on the Caribbean. Super pretty.
Head to toe classics thanks to @jcrew! I am always hunting for perfect pieces to create a timeless wardrobe I can wear for years to come. (This blazer is 100% going to be in heavy rotation from here on out– I love!!!!) Shop my outfit with @shop.ltk #liketkit #injcrew #ad
Cannot resist a chic, coordinating outfit with Jack! Obsessed with @bananarepublicfactory’s line for babies and toddlers (comfortable, neutral basics) and, of course, had to pick out a look for myself too. Check out the new arrivals at Banana Republic Factory! #BRFactorypartner #BRFBaby
Excuse me while I get a little emo for a minute 😮💨 When I was trying to convince Mike to move to the suburbs, @motherhoodlesstraveled drove me through all the different towns to get a feel for the downtowns and the neighborhoods. I fell in LOVE with Madison. Like it’s right out of central casting. That one day we drove down was a beautiful day- the street was lined with flags, kids were going up and down the sidewalk on scooters and bikes, women walked out of a yoga studio with rolled up mats under the arms. And people were spilling out of the ice shop. I just remember thinking, “okay this is it.” When we bought our house in this dreamy town, I so vividly could picture us walking to the ice cream shop with our kids….. and five years later, here we are. It’s everything I dreamed of, and more.
Just wait until…. they start slipping on their own shoes and sing their favorite songs out of the blue and Run to the window to watch the garbage truck come by and Figure out how to get the fridge to spit out ice which is soooo funny and Hug their friends and Help you sweep the floor and wipe down the tables and Make a fishy face and rawr like a dinosaur and neighhhh like a horse and choooo choooo as the train goes by.
Oh my gosh! this is so cool. I love all the pictures with you and your family. It looks like y'all had an amazing time in Mexico. I'm so jealous of you and cannot wait for my spring break! Only about a month more!
Looks like so much fun! And I'm so jealous of your last picture.
I would be too scared to hold the baby tiger but the zip lining looks like so much fun.
This looks AMAZING! Where in Mexico did you guys head to? I'm dying to zipline in a jungle 🙂
looks like so much fun!!!
This looks like a complete blast!!! Your sister gets SO tan!! My middle sister Nora is like that too, where as my youngest sister Charlotte and I do not 🙁 I went to NYC (http://www.hathawayhannum.com/2012/03/my-weekend-in-manhattan.html) and Nantucket (http://www.hathawayhannum.com/2012/03/few-days-on-nantucket.html) over my break!
The last picture makes my heart melt!!! I would have tried to bring him back home with me 🙂
I love seeing vacation pictures from anyone! Getting super excited to go on my cruise next month. I am also the shortest and palest in my family too! IT ISN'T FAIR AT ALL! So glad you had so much fun!
what an adventure! i am insanely jealous, though, my vacation to paris is coming up very, very soon, so i cannot complain! love the underwater pictures!
I'm so jealous! But I'm glad you had a ton of fun and got to be with your family. Zip-lining looks amazing…I definitely want to try that out someday!
awesome time!!! Where did you guys stay!! Mexico is on my to go list!
o my god that baby tiger..I'm dying! looks like such an awesome time!
Looks like you had tons of fun! I hope my spring break goes as well as yours did!
Looks like a blast! That baby tiger is too precious!
OH MY GOSH THAT BABY TIGER IS SOOOOO AMAZINGLY ADORABLE!! I want him.
I love all of your swimsuit picks, and completely understand being the palest one! I figure we won't wrinkle because our skin never let us enjoy a tan. Hopefully!
