This past week we were actually able to get away for a much needed Spring Break. Knowing that local thieves are now Internet savvy, we made sure to keep our "blog on" as well the lights in our condo so people wouldn't realize we were gone. We made our way down to Tulum, Mexico, a small, remote beach town far from the bustle and shenanigans of Cancun.
The town is filled with cabanas where the beach is a mere 15 yards from your hut. You get your own private, secluded beach, and we got to see a lot of this:Meanwhile, the pooches were having their own vacation in the "Chicago Countryside" aka: northern Chicago suburbs. We were lucky enough to have E's mother offer to watch the dogs where they lived like they were at their own bed and breakfast. In the suburbs, they were able to have their very own lawn to roll around in:Far from the city lights they were able to gaze at the stars:And best of all, they got couch privileges, something we struggle with at home:We all had a great time, but it was also nice to return back to the city to surprise 70 degree temperatures in Chicago. And in April! The hardest part of our trip were the airports. I guess we're not the only ones on Spring Break or traveling for holiday; the lines were so outrageous we almost missed our connecting flights. Anyone else planning any fun trips soon?
