Change of Plans

I should be sitting on the beach in Cancun at this very moment. We had planned to go with some really great friends from our med school days. Back in the days of student housing, dumpster diving and debt beyond our comprehension - we would promise each other- someday we have to go on a fabulous vacation together!
Well, 7 years later the time had come! It was booked, babysitting scheduled, days taken off of work, a new swimsuit ready - and then it hit. The swine flu. We ignored it at first because we are not alarmists and there is nothing I hate more than media hype. But after much discussion it became clear over time that it wasn't going to happen. We discussed other options and in fact one couple decided to go to Hawaii anyway. As for us? It was four days in St. George.
But I really shouldn't complain. We had a very relaxing, enjoyable time. We ate out, went swimming, played tennis, read, shopped, went to a movie, hiked Angels Landing in Zion, and met the other couple that was planning on going to Cancun in Vegas for dinner and Cirque du Soleil. And it was great fun to just be with Wes. Rejuvenating! And Southern Utah is one of our favorite places.
So it's all good. I will try to post some pictures of our hike when I get home. I am really excited to see my kids!

Sorry the vaycay didn't happen. I guess you weren't meant to go without us. You'll just have to wait until we're complete and then we should plan it.

Lemons. Lemonade. What will be will be. Didn't Doris Day sing a song about that?

Wow, huge bummer. I'm glad you were still able to have a nice time!

Glad you had fun anyway. I think you need to go to Hawaii someday too. With us.

Oh, what a bummer! At least you didn't just stay home and mope as I would have done.
