I am at the Mexican Riviera...Riviera Maya, which is south of Cancun about 45 minutes...the whole family is here, or will be when Jeff arrives tonight...we are staying at the Rosewood Mayakoba hotel...it is gorgeous...so beautiful...there is a lagoon that winds through the property...it has all sorts of fish, even has alligators in it....it's not too crowded because it's the off season...of course with that comes a few storms...i was worried that we wouldn't be able to go, because hurricane ernesto hit south of here on wednesday...but, it cleared up and we've been fine...every night it's rained...we'ved had some gorgeous days...some partly cloudy ones...but, it's been great so far...kelly, her kids and i arrived on thursday...kerry and austin on friday...willie and kelly, their kids...russell and kristen arrived on saturday...and jeff tonight...the little kids have had a great time playing with the cousins...they look like they could all be 3 sets of twins...they've played in the pool alot...we had a treasure hunt yesterday where they found pirates treasure...it's been fun and relaxing...of course, russ had to go to the hospital...we can't go on a trip that he doesn't go to a doctor or something! he got an infect that was making his leg swell up...who knows what...but, the doctor at home told him to go and have an iv......so, that' where they spent the day on sunday! hope it's better now....
