What am I still doing in Cancun?

The adventures of an American single mommy working and playing in paradise.

Our Weekend at the Cancun Cup 2012


Last weekend I had to cover a beach soccer tournament, the Cancun Cup 2012 for work. I wasn’t really that excited about it, except for the fact that it would mean getting out of the office for a few hours on Friday afternoon, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was a total blast and I loved it. I took Bebé on Saturday and went with Papi, Bebé and a bunch of friends on Sunday.

I won’t bore you with the game details. You can see that here.

Here they are again. They would pose for me which is more than I can say for the soccer players.

My bubba and the goalie from the US team.

He did well in the bleachers because Mommy brought popcorn. Smart Mommy.

Bebé gets popcorn, Mommy gets beer.


The third day was the most fun, although it was the hardest day to actually get my work done because my family and friends where there. Plus I drank a lot more beer that day. The crowd was larger than it had been the two previous days which made it louder and more exciting. The final game was Mexico vs. USA. My friend brought paint for the boys faces and Bebé had a Mexico shirt on. Photographers came over to take pictures of them and my boss saw Bebé on TV!
