Family trip to Mexico

So behind on posts. Geez. How about a few photos from Mexico? I’m thinking I will catch up and then I will totally be back in the routine of regular posting. Yes, quite sure that’s how it will work.

Funny story about this trip… we were supposed to go with 12 other friends. We were the only people flying out of LA, since tickets were expensive and seats were scarce, so everyone else bought tickets to fly out of Tijuana. No problem! Until the airline canceled all flights to Loreto from TJ, and we were the only ones left with tickets. We decided to go anyway and just enjoy the time as a family before we’re on house arrest this summer after the new bebe comes. Super glad we did.

Highlights: Dashiell at the beach, Dashiell at the pool, the local farmer’s market, horchata, charred jalapeños with salsa and chips, a Cirque du Soleil style performance on a sailboat by a French family, making simple food with simple ingredients, warm tortillas, clear water, no plans.

Not quite as warm as we’d hoped for, but still a really nice time together as a family. We love going to Mexico.

    @Allison – We are planning to get the double BOB. But we use it for running (or at least my husband does) every day and we definitely want to be able to take both kids at the same time. I assume we’ll need some other double stroller situation too because it’s so big? Dashiell still really likes riding along. We have a Bugaboo too, and you can buy a little platform for the older kid to stand on, but I’m not convinced he’s old enough. We’ll see!

    @sara – totally responded to this comment on the bday party post. Farther south = even better, I think!
