BELIZE! Spring break with Moms and teenagers! Day One

Well the countdown has ended and we are finally here in my favorite paradise Belize! I plan to blog our adventures every day of the trip so come back and check out what we are up to!

Day one started with a 3:45am wake up call to head to the airport. 3 Moms (including me) and 4 teens starting with Jenny and Molly both on their senior spring break trip and Drew and Jen my two, 16 and 13. Poor Drew, he's the solo guy on the trip. Although I think he can handle us just fine!

Day one has us flying to Belize City with a van pickup and 2 hour drive north to a fabulous eco lodge near San Ignacio called The Lodge at Chaa Creek. Beautiful resort in the jungle but pretty much you, a few other guests and the howler monkeys and wildlife.

made it to Chaa Creek and this tired, hot and sweaty entourage made an immediate beeline to the beautiful salt water pool!

then we headed to our fabulous cottage to unwind

the outdoor palapa covered bar and restaurant was a beautiful place to relax!
Drew and Jenny chillin out

The restaurant here is fantastic! They have a fixed price menu for dinner and you can choose from several fabulous entrees. Shrimp risotto was outstanding!

Awesome outdoor bar with beautiful lights at night

Gotta figure some of these out for the Zen Garden!!

DAY TWO: Off Cave tubing and Ziplining through the jungle!
Fabulous fun adventure!

We are all geared up and ready to go!

Hiking up the platform for the first zip

Ziplining in the jungle is pretty much just amazing!

It's too late to run Molly - you're boarded now!!

Good Lord look who's flying the plane! Hope we don't end up like Malaysia 370!!
OK - maybe it's too soon for that tasteless joke...
