Carson did great! He was such a great sport about not winning and then at the end, Billy put graphite on his wheels and he raced against 1st and 2nd place and beat both of them. He was still a great sport and had a great time. :)

I think one of my favorite things about our trip was riding cruiser bikes in Belize!! We would ride them on the beach in the morning and then again to go Scuba diving.

At the airport!
We knew our hotel was only a few miles away, so we skipped the $6 taxi and decided to throw on our back packs and walk. We asked someone where a bike rental shop was (our first mistake). We walked a mile north to the shop and decided maybe it would be better to just rent them at our hotel. Sooooooo we went to beach, had an amazing breakfast of fry jacks, eggs, and fresh grapefruit juice. By the time we got done eating it was about 10:00am. We were so excited to be on the beach that we decided to walk in the sand to our hotel. Whenever we would talk to someone, they would ask if we wanted them to get us a taxi. We kept saying, "we're fine, it's not that far". They would look at us like we were crazy. We only walked about 4 miles since leaving the airport, but with all we packed for 10 days on our backs and walking in the sand, it took us much longer than expected. By the time we finally got to our hotel, we were hot, sweaty, and tired. We changed right into our swim suits and jumped in the ocean!!

Billy in heaven!! He loves architecture, history, and traveling!!!
Juego de Pelota is the main ball court in Chitzen Itza. It is the largest and best preserved ball court it the world. This court really did amaze me. I would love to see how the game was played and see someone kick or throw a ball through the tiny holes.
After leaving Chitzen Itza, we drove though Valladolid, and decided to stop in Coba. We knew we didn't have much time, but it was fun to climb the tallest Mayan Temple in Southern Mexico.
There were locals at the trail head offering to pedal you to the ruins, but that's not how we roll. We ran/walked the 2 miles to the main temple. This was my favorite ruin. In Chitzen Itza, we weren't allowed to climb the large temples. In Coba, we climbed the eroding steps to the top. The view was incredible. It was hard to make out all the other ruins we passed along the way. The jungle goes on forever. I do wish that we would have rented some mountain bikes to zoom down the trail after climbing and sweating in the humid weather.

Panoramics from all sides of the point.
I am such a lucky girl!!
We did a lot of walking on the beach. We found some fun shells to take home to the boys. Here are some pics of our evening walk.
We woke up early most mornings, and the earliest reservation for the restaurants started at 6:30. We would be exhausted from a day of playing and go to bed right after we ate.
I love having a ocean view and listening to the waves roll in at night.
