Sunny Cabo

This past week was spent in the beautiful, glorious, warm sunshine of Cabo San Lucas. Even though I questioned our sanity at trying to travel to Mexico with two kids, three suitcases, a pack & play, two car seats, a stroller, two backpacks and an overflowing diaper bag, we survived the "travelling" part and had the BEST vacation. The flights were surprisingly smooth, both kids slept fairly well and the weather could not have been any more perfect. It was a much needed break for everyone and we had so much fun with Kyle's parents, Stacy, Justin and Bennett. Some of the highlights were: 11:00 happy hour by the pool, Carter's endless squeals as he splashed and enjoyed the pool, dinner at Poncho's (twice, none the less), celebrating Kyle's 30th birthday with a little serenade from three Mexican musicians, morning walks to see the turtles and flamingos and lots of quality time with family. We could not have asked for anything more and are so thankful that Kyle's parents allow us to invade their otherwise peaceful vacation! Here are some pics from our wonderful week!

Carter was swimming less than an hour after we arrived...no nap, no problem! He was just so happy to finally be in that pool!

Grandma and Papa with the three kiddos. So long to rest and relaxation on vacation! They were amazingly helpful and hopefully enjoyed having us as much as we enjoyed being there.

Off for our morning stroll

Dinner out at Ponchos. We had to laugh at our early dining hour (5:30 most nights), but with three wee ones to consider we were just lucky to make it through a meal!

The view from our balcony

Our happy kiddos. Love them.

Little Bennett, happy as a clam!

Carter's favorite mode of transportation - Uncle Justin's shoulders!

Too cool. Please notice I'm having to restrain her arms, because she did not enjoy the sunglasses. They were off and into her mouth in mere seconds.

Beautiful beach. Unfortunately, we didn't spend much time in the sand, because Carter was kind of afraid of the ocean. He didn't like the waves and was worried that there would be whales. (He just learned about the story of Jonah and the whale the Sunday before we left - not the best timing for that bible lesson)

Our one attempt at ocean time. I think Kyle's back is still recovering from the indentations of Carter's fingers!

Kennedy seemed to enjoy it - her first dip into the ocean


  1. I was hoping that there would be a post with photos from Cabo. How wonderful. You all look so happy to be in the sun. I can not wait to hear about your trip. Love the sunglasses on Kennedy. Chat with you soon.

  2. Oohh! That looks so fun! I need a fun trip so bad (hopefully Ryan will get a new job soon!) I loved Kennedy's little sunglasses! The beach and pool look so wonderful. I'm glad is was a great vacation!
