Almost there!!

Our Resort

They had decorated our room with rose petals and had fresh fruit and champagne to welcome us and to celebrate our belated 20th anniversary!  Such a nice touch.  Our room looked out at 1 of the 7 pools at the resort and we also had a slight glimpse of the ocean, Steve and Jenny were on the 4th floor so had a great view of the ocean.

Jennie was sweet and was our personal photographer on the 2nd night we were there.

Such beautiful sunsets!  Steve and Jennie shared the exciting news on the way down to Cancun that they are expecting the newest member of the Plummer family in July!!  We are so excited to be getting a new nephew or niece!! What a special beginning to a great trip!!
