Summer Means Taking Granddaughter on Vacation


We just came back from a cruise and I took this picture of the boat sailing right by us. I liked how its shadow was reflected on the water so I would like to link with Hey Harriet's Shadow Sunday at http://heyharriet.blogspot.com to share the photo with you.


I am also joining Summer Sunday.

Summer is children's vacation time from school so it means taking our oldest grandkid on a trip. We have done this since she was 5 when we took her on a 10 day trip to Hawaii and now she is 11. She has been to lots of states in America, Caribbean coasts, countries in Europe and we plan to start taking her to Asia next year. I still cannot forget when we went to Pompeii and she said that she could not wait to tell her teacher about it since they were just studying about the excavations in Social Studies in school. We are hoping these trips really expand her educational and geographical knowledge.


This time, we took her on a cruise to Cozumel and Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.




We showed her the Dzibilchaltun Mayan Ruins. I will show you more of it on Sightseeing Saturday.


Then we took her to Discover Mexico Park, to learn more about Mexican history and culture. We always try to mix education with fun everytime we take her on a trip.

Eeeek! I wouldn't touch that Boa constrictor for anything, but AJ is fearless.





The park had models of different Mayan structures to help us envision how they used to be.


We went to the Chankanaab Resort, which was recommended by my classmate from HS, and I am so glad she did because it was absolutely breathtaking and a lot of fun.






I will show you more of this resort in one of future Sightseeing Saturdays.




She watched the dolphins jump up and down.



and went snorkeling



Thanks to the Tablescaper for allowing us to share some summer pictures.
