Cabo San Lucas...yes again!

Last week we took the kids (and my mom and step-dad) back to Cabo San Lucas, MX.  We just love it there and since we finally broke down and bought a timeshare there we thought we'd escape the cold temps and snow for a little while.  Plus, with purchasing the timeshare we also received some bonus points so it allowed us to stay in one of their penthouse rooms.  It was HUGE with great views of the ocean and pool.

The kids had a blast playing in the pool as well as the beach.  It was Curren's first time at the beach as well as playing in "real" sand and he couldn't get enough of it.  The water...not so much.

Most of the time was spent at our resort, but we did take everyone out to some great local taquerias, down in to Cabo San Lucas (we now stay just north in San Jose del Cabo) to Pedregal to see some whales on the Pacific side as well as a local beach Chilleno where we usually go snorkeling.

It was a great trip!  Nice and relaxing and a good amount of time for the kids.  By Friday (the day we left) they were ready to head home to their normal surroundings.  We did have a snafu with our flight, which could've been least from a mom perscpective, but thankfully turned out well.  As the flight was taxiing on the runway the pilot told us they were having problems with their electrical system.  Of course Curren was napping at that time and I was hoping he's sleep a good portion of the flight.  (It's only 3 hours.)  To make a long story short, we sat on the tarmac for 3 hours while they tried to fix the problem and ended up taking off from MX when we were supposed to land in Denver.  UGH!  But the kids were troopers and behaved well.  Thankfully it wasn't a full flight so it was easy for them to get up and move around.  The pilot made up some time, thankfully and we got to Denver in 2 1/2 hours.

Can't wait to go back again!  It's nice going to a place we love and a place we're familiar with too.  It's easy for us to navigate through town and we know some great, but inexpensive places to eat.  Plus it doesn't hurt that Rick's BFF lives down there with his family too.

Snow, snow, snow

It took a long time for us to really get some snow, but over the last few days and weeks we've been hit with some good storms as well as some REALLY, REALLY cold temperatures.  (Thankfully we were in Cabo San Lucas for the cold temps.)  Anyway, here are some pictures of the boys playing in the snow a few weeks ago when we didn't have school.

BTW, it's so bright outside that I make them wear their goggles/sunglasses. Learned a couple years back when the older boys eyeballs, yes their eyeballs got sunburned while sledding.
