This past weekend, several girls traveled down to Cancun for Tracey's Bachelorette Party! We had booked this trip back in August, so its been a long time coming. Also, I have to give a HUGE thanks to Ben who kept Wyatt by himself all weekend. (I'm pretty sure he was exhausted by the end)
Becky, Tracey, Erin, and I flew in from Atlanta and ended up meeting Mary Beth and Sarah at the airport in Cancun. Let me tell you something about customs at the Air Tran terminal in Mexico: they are efficient! Seriously! They have done extensive studies in queuing, and have found that the best approach to a mass of people is to let them stand in one big herd and fend for themselves. Mexican Queuing Theory - I remember reading all about it in my operations management books in grad school. Am I taking this too far? Probably so, but seriously, I believe we actually spent less time in the airplane than we did in that line. You can sorta see the herd of people in the background of this picture!
Once we met MB and Sarah, we got on our little shuttle bus and headed over to our resort!
Another thing about Customs/Immigration in Mexico? They don't feed you lunch while you're waiting in line! Therefore, once we got to the resort and checked in we literally threw our bags down in the room and went to have lunch by the pool.
After lunch it was a bit overcast, so we just wandered around the resort for a bit and took some pictures.
That evening, we all got gussied up for drinks and dinner. Hilariously enough, the beach side restaurant where we had afternoon snacks and drinks was called Pina Colada by day and La Deva by night. They did have a different menu and the most delicious fried ice cream that I've ever had!
After dinner, some went to bed (it had been a long day) while MB, Tracey and I went to the hotel lobby for drinks.
The afternoon turned out to be pretty rainy, so we just kinda hung out until it was time to get ready for Tracey's lingerie shower and dinner. We did make her dress up in silly bachelorette stuff, of course!
We took it back to the lobby bar after dinner and unfortunately the only picture I took was of this Mexican Wrestler. I wanted to get a picture of his face, but didn't want to be too obvious!
Sunday was a short day, as we had to leave around lunch time so we all got up ate a quick breakfast and went outside to enjoy the weather for a while before leaving. Oh! And we also met a new friend!! (thisiguanadontcare)
