Puerto Vallarta

Cori and I are home from Mexico and are both happy and sad that the summer is over and we're getting started on the very busy year ahead of us! Our vacation was absolutely perfect - we could not have asked for a more amazing trip... The weather was perfect, the resort and beach were beautiful, and the company was fantastic!

While we were in Puerto Vallarta, we spent most of our time by the pool, though we also spent plenty of time in the ocean. I learned how to boogie board, and Cori loved floating through the waves. We went into the city one day. And because the resort was all-inclusive, we had all authentic Mexican food that we could hold!

There was a different show at the resort each night - the Mexico show, the Latin Dance show, the Comedy show, the Circus show, etc. One night was a Karaoke Night... Cori and I both performed - Cori sang "Hopelessly Devoted to You" by Olivia Newton John and "Honey, I'm Home" by Shania Twain. I sang (appropriately) "Two of a Kind, Working on a Full House" by Garth Brooks. It was a lot of fun!

The best thing about the trip, though, was the view! We were surrounded on three sides (north, east, and south) by mountains, and the beautiful Pacific Ocean seemed endless to the west. We took a walk on the beach almost every night to watch the sunset.

Here are a few pictures from our trip:

I am so glad that you got to spend this time together before your own little Peanut arrives. You will always treasure this respite from the real world.

It was the Vallarta Palace in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico (just north of Puerto Vallarta). The website is
