A few weeks ago my twin sister and her family came to visit us. It was a great trip. It was the first time our 3 year old niece had been to Mexico. We had a fun time showing her the sights. The day after they arrived we left and went to the beach. It is only a few hours away so we left here in the morning and were there in time to eat a late lunch. Here are some pictures of the second day we were there. At night time they have a kids "disco". The kids exercise to a few songs and then have a competition. Each night its a different competition but this time it was hot potato. There were only two kids besides our four. Abigail ended up winning and she got a t-shirt which she is pretty proud of.

After the kids disco we headed up to the room. This is what Hannah looked like about 10 minutes after getting to the room. She was so tired, she fell asleep sitting up.
The resort has a really cool open air restaurant. The only problem is the birds! Josiah was feeling pretty big because we would let him get the food by himself (its a buffet style). One day he came to the table with his donuts that he had choosen for dessert. Well one of the donuts had a big hole on the side of it. We soon realized it had been made by a bird. So we put it on a tray and quickly another bird came to eat it.
We tried getting a picture of all four kids burried in the sand but the 3 year olds didn't really think it was a good idea so here are the two big kids.

Out with dad

Abigail so badly wanted to go out with dad on the kayak. The first day Cory went out with Josiah but by the time they got back to shore it was time for the pinata and Abigail decided she wanted to do the pinata and ride the kayak the next day. She was so excited, she kept talking about going out on the boat with dad. Well she finally got to and she had a great time as you can see from the pictures.


We went out to the beach at around 9 in the morning and this is what the beach looked like. We were the only people out. Its kinda sad because between the bad economy and the N1H1 flu tourism is really suffering in Mexico right now. With tourism down so much the hotels are running some amazing deals. The resort we always stay at (its actually where we honeymooned 10 year ago next month) is running some great deals right now. If you are interested in the resort please contact me, I can hook you up with some great deals. Right now I believe the hotel is charging $45 a night per adult all inclusive!!! Yes all inclusive that means your hotel room, all your food and beverages, non motorized sports (bikes, kayaks, tennis etc). Kids under 6 are free and 7-13 half price. Seriously its a great time to come because the resorts aren't packed and the prices are amazing!!

We would love for you to come visit!!!
