This year for Christmas we decided to head down to Mexico. It would be myself, Mom, Tanya and Casey.
They came to Omaha on Christmas eve. We made a nice dinner in which we had the other Troy (Splichal) join us. He was suppose to be in Brazil but due to all the snow storms in Denver he didn’t make it out so he drove to Omaha and flew out from there.
Out flight was schedule to leave a 6:00 am on Christmas morning. We left for the airport at 5:00 am. We arrived to the airport in Omaha after parking the car there was a line at the United counter that was 200 people deep. We thought oh great we are going to miss our flight to Chicago. How ever after standing in the long line for a few minutes a worker announced that if you were flying international you could get in the line that had only 2 other people in it. So after checking out luggage we headed up to the gate to fly to Chicago where we had a 2 hour layover before departing for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
We landed in Puerto Vallarta around 2:00 pm. We waited for our taxi to take us to our all inclusive resort. We were standing in the sun and 85 degree weather which was a slight change from the 20 degree weather we left in Omaha. It took a while for our taxi to get there and take us to the resort. Our resort “The Royal Decameron Costa Flamingos” was about 20 miles north of the airport. After arriving at the resort we checked in got our wrist bands and headed to the rooms to drop off our luggage and then headed down to the bar to get a nice ice cold beverage.
For the rest of the day we just sat around the beach and bar areas enjoying and relaxing in the nice warm weather. We also did enjoy some of the food while we sat around.
That evening we went to the ocean front patio bar and join others in a music trivia game. After the trivia game we headed over to the theatre for a interesting dance and singing show. The show included a lot of audience participation. Casey had a guys dress in drag setting on his lap for part of the show. Then for another part of the show I was dragged up on stage along with another guy to participate in the game that included the host putting his hand on our leg and then we had to try to hit it with one of our shoes. The outcome was we both ended up with nice red spots on our legs.
After that Mom headed to be and the three of us headed over to the disco to listen to some of the music and have a few more drinks.
I think we finally called it a night about 1:30 am.
