We went to Cabo the last week of October, and it was SUCH a fabulous trip. There were 2 other couples who we went with which made the trip even more fun. Vacations are all that more relaxing when you have a child because you can truly appreciate the time to just RELAX and not feel like there's something else that you should be doing, or a little one that needs your (constant) attention. While we were away, Reid had his own vacation because he got to spend the whole week with Granna and Granddaddy (the first half) and Mimi and Pop-Pop (the last half). He went to the zoo, the D/FW observation area, learned how to squash bugs, wanted to stop and pose at every pumpkin and scarecrow he saw on his daily walks, and just got to play, play, play! Thanks to the wonderful grandparents who made it such a fun week for Reid that I think he was disappointed when Matt and I returned!!!
The first night's dinner on the beach at the hotel

The hotel beach was very rocky, so we had to drive to another beach to hang out

Me, Erin, Lynette

We boogie boarded and surfed (well, the guys surfed)

Does it get classier than sitting outside the Mexican mall drinking beer?? :)

We went on an excursion to see the Cabo Rocks, and the Cabo arch

There were so many pelicans!

This was so cool! Where the seals like to chill!

The arch

We ate at some great local spots and drank some delicious fruity drinks!

If you're ever in Cabo, I recommend eating at "The Office," a place on the beach...we ate breakfast there and it was so yummy!

Another restaurant recommendation, "Mi Casa" - wonderful, authentic Mexican food!

Our last night in paradise :(
