Back to Life...

back to reality.

why is it so hard to get back into the swing of things after a vacation?

this past week has been a whirlwind. i have wanted to blog since our return, but there has been no time. between catching up on the piles of laundry, cleaning my house, restocking my fridge, and catching up on lost sleep i have been so crazy busy!

we arrived home two weeks ago, Sunday evening from a quick get-a-way trip to Puerta Vallarta. the kids had a little vacation of their own at Nani and Papa's house. when we walked through the door that night, i asked cade how his vacation went and he said, "great mommy!" guess a little get-a-way was just what the doctor order for all of us.

i had a wonderful time with steve, his brother phil, my s.i.l. cindy, and my in-laws inelda & orlando. we stayed right on the beach at the club regina resort.

here are a few of my favorite things that we did:

- zip line course in the mountains

- dinner at senor frogs

- sweeping up in pool volleyball against a crew from Michigan

- reading by the pool

- bargaining on the beach with the locals for stellar silver/red coral earrings

- sleeping in

- ordering a gourmet breakfast every day

- lounging

- eating fresh guacamole daily

it was the perfect balance of relaxation & activity...i savored every moment!!!
Dinner at Beer & Tacos

Breakfast al fresco

Senor Frogs here we come! You order guacamole, you make it!!!

Fun, fun! I guess I would've known you were going if I ever called you. :) I'm calling you one day next week...somehow my life is absorbed by swim lessons this week.
