Cabo Baby

Our family took a last minute trip last week to Cabo. We had an opportunity to use a timeshare down there and took advantage to celebrate my birthday and our upcoming anniversary. So the three of us packed up and flew down to Mexico.
Some memorable moments of the trip
(good, ba
d, embarrassing):
* Going on a timeshare presentation to save $$$ on our car rental. We got a free breakfast too! We're so cheap...
* Taking out wave runners in the Sea of Cortez with the CUTE sea lions.
* Watching some weird boat parade or protest from our hotel balcony. I'm not really sure what was happening here.
* Taking pictures of a man at the pool thinking he was Paul Teutul Sr. from the Orange County Choppers TV show. But he wasn't. Just some guy with a big mustache drinking beer at the pool. Jared had me get in the pool in front of him to take the pictures without him knowing. Check it out though... Left: Man at Pool, Right: Paul Teutul Sr.

*Getting taken out by a big wave and then looking around to make sure no one saw. I'm sure they were all laughing on the inside. It was hilarious and embarrassing at the same time.
*Spending $22 on a nasty burrito (this is pretty much how every meal went... the food was terrible and outrageously expensive). I'm pretty much turned off of Mexican food for a while now.
*Teaching Greyden how to kick & splash in the pool!
*Driving up north to a charming town, Todos Santos, behind a very Mexican truck (see below) and buying a cool piece of art for our home.

*Attempting to take a family picture at beautiful, empty beach on the Pacific side of the Baja. It didn't work out very well.
*Last but definitely not least... sleeping & lounging by the pool & beach with Pina Coladas & Strawberry Daquiris


Aaaaaah....

OK, I HAVE to comment on this one ;). I totally feel your pain on the plane ride - can you believe how rude some people are? As though you want your child to scream at the top of his lungs for one straight hour. As if you enjoy the noise and the looks and the embarrassment. As if you haven't thought of anything you can do to calm him down. I despise nothing more than people with a lot of complaints and no solutions.

And I had to laugh about the whole Jared/Mother's Day conversation. I felt your pain ;).

I'M SO JEALOUS! It looks like a fabulous trip. Dave is so funny - he got home last night and I asked "so how was Cabo?" He said "Oh...I forgot to ask them about it." HELLO!

I love the family picture where the 3 of you can barely be seen. You should have told the Lady on the plane your plan for calming Grey down was to give him to her for the rest of the flight. SO LAME!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has had a screaming child. I'm surprised people aren't more understanding/sympathetic about it. They'll get it someday!!!

That looks like so much fun! I am sure it was a nice break for you guys. Oh and about the screaming baby, Blake did that for 1.5 hours while I was flying by myself with him, so I didn't have Chad to pass him off to. It was a red eye flight and everyone was tired. Blake was 18 months old so he just kept hitting and kicking me because he wanted off the plane! And the lady next to me kept plugging her ears then finally slammed her fist into the chair and said she couldn't take it anymore and got up and found a new seat. I just sat there and cried with Blake and looked like a total fool. So I know how you feel, it sucks!
