In May we went to Rocky Point Mexico with friends. The trip came together pretty last minute, which is unusual for me. I am not spontaneous. It was such a memorable trip. We were able to reunite with Joey's college roommates, Aaron Wright, Jeff Burke, Shane Vancott, and their families. My sister Ash and her group came too. I knew it would be wonderful, but wow, that ended up being an understatement. I was blown away by the beauty of the deserted beach, and how much fun we had with these old friends!!! It was a while ago, so I am just going to post a bunch of pictures which is the best part anyway. The good quality ones I stole off my sister's blog. The blurry low-quality ones were taken with my camera. Sometimes I don't even know why I bother.
I will start off with my very favorite picture. This is the whole group on our way home. We stopped at thrifty for ice cream and a final goodbye. I love these people! (not sure where Joey is??? Jeff Burke took the picture)
Okay, in no particular order:
We went to a rather sad aquarium. The kids ADORED it though. I love Jeff Burke in this picture. The kids still talk about this place and beg to go back.
Me, diligently sun screening!
The first day we got there, the kids got out of the car and high-tailed it straight down to the beach.
Ash and I cooking.
Look at this pristine beach with only us on it!
Joey and Fi looking at the sea lion, Arthur.
Ty getting his fanta on. I love this.
Good friends, good food.
Rocky Point was pretty deserted.
Here is our set up on the beach. Of course I require shade so I brought this tent.
Fiona cried when I took off this dress. She is such a fashionista.
Joey, walking down the beach trying to get better Internet. He had some important things happening at work. This picture makes my blood boil...and makes me laugh at the same time. He has assured me if we go again, he will take the time off work and truly NOT WORK!
I love this picture I took of Ash and Cort.
On the drive home we stopped at a park to eat our subway sandwiches. It was so fun and reminded me of road trips when I was little. Dad was always looks for somewhere for us to get our wiggles out.
Ashley always does my motherly playground duties. I don't like to slide!
Beebs and Henners.
Wow, what a group.
It was a great trip. I will end with another of my favorite pictures. This is the kids in the car plus Shane. We had a full van. It was funny listening to Shane boss the kids around. They still talk about how much fun his car games were.
