We got Maggie’s passport taken care of earlier this spring so that we could take her on a trip to Mexico this summer. She loved swimming in the pool more than anything. She enjoyed playing in the sand but didn’t care for the ocean. She loved the food, especially things like papaya, queso cheese, french fries, chocolate milk, guacamole, and tomato soup.
Her least favorite experience was visiting the Mayan ruins at Tulum. Maggie doesn’t do well in the heat, and that may have been the hottest day any of us have ever experienced.
She gets super red in the face any time she is hot, and I ended up having to take the girls back to the air conditioned shops at the entrance to the ruins as neither of them could handle finishing the tour. Hopefully someday they will be glad to say they were there.
I got terribly, terribly sick while we were in Mexico. It costs me two days of our vacation and I was very weak afterward. I ended up needing to get a shot from the hotel doctor to avoid going to a Mexican ER. That was a huge disappointment as I really was looking forward to a relaxing vacation with my husband and our little girls–but it didn’t turn out quite as I expected. Thankfully, no one else got sick and I was recovered in time to celebrate my birthday with them in Mexico before flying home.
