WOW... What a trip! It was much needed and oh so rejuvenating! We had never been to the west side of Mexico and we loved it! The Puerto Vallarta area is beautiful. It is set on a bay and surrounded by mountains that meet up with the ocean. We went with Todd's brother Craig and his wife, Liz. We've been travel partners for the last few years and we've developed a system that seems to work! We love to get away with them to someplace tropical around February. It gives us something to look forward to in the last few awful winter months in Colorado and Utah.
We didn't really "go, see, do" a whole lot. We did manage to go sailing, horse back riding, and boogie boarding but the majority of our time was spent on the beach or by the pool having virgin pina colada's delivered to us. I have been forbidden to talk about the night that Todd was selected from the audience to perform in a "Mr. Palace competition." If you want the details on that you've got to ask him. All I can say is that I've never laughed so hard in my life! He's hoping that I'll just forget that it ever happened, but there is NO chance of that happening, ever! I think that the best part of the trip however, was the weather. It felt so good to be hot! It's amazing what a little sunshine can do for your psyche. I guess having someone wait on you hand and foot was pretty great too. I didn't lift a finger to make a bed, cook a meal, do a dish or vacuum a floor for over a week. Needless to say when we got home I had a rude awakening! It feels good to be home though. Todd and I really started missing the boys about day 4 and when we got home we found that little Sammy had grown up! He got his first tooth, he can (sort of) hold his own bottle and he is already on all fours rocking back and forth. I wouldn't be surprised if he started crawling within 2 weeks. They can change so fast when they're little!
Here's hoping spring comes with a vengeance!
