The Christmas holiday seems to get better and better as the kids get older. I’m sure that will change at some point, but for now we love to sneak away and spend a week with our little crew where we all have plenty of activities we love. Our favorite part is how we open a few small presents on Christmas morning and by 9:00 am they’re all forgotten and we’re on the beach.
This year was about building sand creatures, jumping off paddle boards, snorkeling, shell hunting, and pretty much anything else you can do in an ocean.
We visited Tulum to take in a little history and culture. Charlotte was intrigued. Johnny spotted every iguana.
My personal highlight of the trip was our catamaran trip. We got lucky with the weather and upgrade on our boat due to mechanical issues. It was a beautiful day on the crystal clear water as we sailed with our music jamming. When we anchored, we snorkeled to see all of the bright happy fish and even found a few starfishes. It was calm and so beautiful. To top it off, the kids decided to jump off the boat into the perfect ocean like it was a swimming pool. John and I followed suit. Video below. Dreamy times.
Thank you, Santa, for another amazing Christmas in paradise! I’ll keep hiding our Park City address from you for now. Xoxo
