We are back


Back to home sweet home. The trip exceeded our expectations. Not to say everything was 100% perfect, but certainly close enough for every person in the family to have a fantastic time. The kids were all in mourning about leaving the friends they made, which is something I didn't foresee happening. Here's what we discovered: in December, Mexican resorts are chock full of Canadians! Seriously, it's like the entire continent just tilts a bit like the sinking Titanic and spills some frostbitten refugees into the much warmer southern lands.

We made friends with one super nice family from Calgary with FIVE kids. Just like my family of origin. Guess how long they were staying? Fifteen days! What happened to camping in the rain? I wondered (knowing that's just what my dad would say).

More later.

Canadians are known as the snow birds in Mexico. Love the two pics--I have never seen photo opportunities with birds down there--very cool!

I got a big kick out of the photo of the girls with the birds on their heads! Especially the nonchalant expression on Caroline's face! Hilarious. Glad you guys had a great time!
