Mexico 2008

We started our vacation at Rial and Emily's house (Blaine's brother) in Tucson. Bella thinks he is the coolest because he is a fire fighter. Then that night, one of Blaine's other brothers, Wade, flew in on his way back from visiting Steve and Kelli (yet another brother of Blaine's) in Georgia. Wade was flying stand by and decided to break it up by coming through Tucson. It was fun to hang with both Rial and Wade.

The next day, we drove the rental car to Rocky Point, Mexico, which is about 3-4 hours south of Tucson. It was my side of the family's reunion and we had a great time.

All of the grandkids.

Yeah, we got used to this view pretty easily! We spent so much time at the pool and beach every day. Bella got a little sun burned and Ez tanned right up.

Aaaaw...this is the life...

After a few days, Bella was becoming more daring and quite the little fish.

Ez LOVED splashing in the pool.

Wedgie bum and saggy bum cousins.

We went out to dinner one of the nights to a restaurant with a killer view. The Mariachi band provided fun entertainment and the food was pretty good, too.

The best part of the vacation was seeing how much fun the kids were having. Bella keeps saying that she wants to go back to Mexico. I do, too. Anyone want to come with???
