Mexico Vacations! Is a carefree vacation….



The Barcelo in the Riviera Maya is a Beautiful Resort if you are looking for a place to take your family.  The staff was friendly and the food was great not to mention the rooms were clean and the maintenance staff was always grooming the landscape.  We have been twice to this resort, once with our boys and once without and I would recommend it to anyone with children.  We packed our own snorkel gear because the ones that the resort offers complimentary to you, you only get to use them for 1 hour a day per guest and that was not enough time for our family.  However, it was plenty of time for me!  My husband and boys love to snorkel and the fish here at this resort are quite colorful and the they have a dock that you can walk out further on to snorkel where more fish are located.  It is an all-inclusive resort so no need to worry about food when the little ones get hungry- all the food is included.  You will need a passport for each family member so make sure you plan a month ahead.

If you have any questions please ask 🙂

Signal Mountain Lodge, a very serene peace. If you are visiting the Grand Tetons you need to stop at this place and take in the views.

Have a great Thursday!!

This Fort is located on Mobile Point, at the end of the Fort Morgan Peninsula.

Fort Morgan, Alabama

A great place to rent a beach house if you have young ones or even older ones and just relax on the beach! Take a drive to the USS Alabama and tour an actual battleship or just take in the sights. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Flip_Flop_Traveler now on Instagram

Today I created an Instagram page called flip_flop_traveler of vacations pictures. It is an idea I have been tossing around for awhile and I love my personal family Instagram page so I thought I would make a public one and just post random vacation pictures. For my steady followers you know I am a huge fan of traveling in general, from local destinations, to state parks like Yellowstone and Estes Park, all things Mexico, Bahamas (Not so much a fan of the cruise we took), Savannah, Wyoming, Kentucky, Tennessee, Fort Morgan, Chicago, St. Louis, Florida, Colorado, Wisconsin Dells and too many more to mention. This is where my Instagram comes in at! We have been blessed to have been able to visit some spectacular places and I wanted another venue to share some of my favorite pictures on. If you want to follow me you can go to your Instagram account and search flip_flop_traveler, my profile picture is me sitting on a huge rock somewhere in Colorado.

We have always traveled with our children so if you have any questions about traveling with your kids to any of these places, please ask.

This picture below is my oldest son fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.
