Cancun part 2

One of the neat things about the resort was the art they had everywhere.   The walls were covered with enormous tapestries and sculptures were tucked here and there in hedges and on lawns.   

This was in front of one of the restaurants we went to for breakfast.  



and these two were in the foyer.



when we were leaving, a little boy of about 2 had wedged himself into the textile sculpture and his mother was taking photos of him....it was so cute!

The kids ready to go out for evening, waiting on us......before.....

  after........

They were the only kids on the trip and everyone complimented them.  They are such great kids, we are truly blessed.

One night we went to a Fire show and to kick things off, the MC sent a cute girl off into the audience to bring back 3 male "volunteers" to go on stage.    As it turned out, they had to try and do the dance moves he did.
OH.MY.GOSH.  It was very funny!   One guy was terrified and the other guy just couldn't get it together.

Matt was the best of the 3 on stage and he won a spa package.  (He gave it away since we were going to the ruins the next day.)  
He enjoyed being a celebrity the rest of the trip with people coming up and talking to him, asking him to dance, telling him what a good sport he was and how funny he was on stage.  (He was the only one not intimidated by the MC.)   He kept saying he could "get used to this" and maybe he should go in to acting!




Then the show began, and it was so neat!  They used all sorts of props, one guy sat in a chair upside down and rolled the fire with his feet.  The girls used hula hoops....we kept waiting for their hair to catch on fire.



They had 4 guys in the back with percussion instruments and 1 of them chanted throughout the show.  It was really a wonderful show.

Looks like a lot of fun! I don't think I would have gotten on stage.
