We got up really early like 6:30 am, got ready, and left for Chichen Itza.
The doors opened at 8 am.
We arrived at 8:30 am and took the free road instead of the toll road.
|Kukulcan (Mayan) or El Castillo (Spaniards)|
The boys have talked about going to Chitzen Itza
since they found out we were going to Mexico.
We saw all of it.
|The Ball Court|
Hurricane had an almost accident in his pants,
but pooped in the jungle with Sweetheart's assistance.
We walked to all parts.
|A posed picture|
The boys saw an iguana that we named Dinner and took many pictures of it.
The public baths didn't have toilet paper so glad I brought wipes.
We got 2 great pictures taken in front of the Observatory and El Castillo (top picture.)
The boys wanted a chess set and jaguar whistle.
Sweetheart negotiated for them and was happy about the price.
|Next to the Sacred Cenote|
We were leaving when most of the crowds started to arrive at 12:30 pm.
We drove back to Valladolid.
We hung out at the chapel for 2+ hours
while missionaries talked with President Kirkham.
|Dinner is sitting on the snake's head.|
We returned to shop at the plaza where
my Mom bought me a fabulous shirt of sunflowers.
She bought hand stitched handkerchiefs from Antonia.
|When I was about 10 or so, our family visited. I stood on the edge of the rim of the cenote. It is now fenced off.|
We ate at a buffet and returned to Cancun.
On the way we talked about branding our family
and decided in part on a poem from Great-Grandpa Kirkham.
|They fell asleep from Valladolid to Cancun.|
We had trouble getting
through the gate at the community where my parents live.
Sweetheart and my Dad resolved it.
After arriving, Hurricane swam and Underfoot played chess.
I got laundry done and watched the LDS Women's Meeting with my mom.
