Well, we got SUPER lucky in the contest department this year! Scott won TWO trips from work. The first to San Fransisco, found by these links (Day One , Shark Fishing, Day Two, Day Three, Day Four, Botanical Garden).
Then next trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in November!
We hurried and rushed getting our Passports and prepped to go! I was a little nervous about leaving the kids again so soon. It takes a little more work leaving a nursing baby, but it all worked out great in the end! We are so lucky and blessed to have awesome grandma's and grandpa's to help us out.
Traveling is always a little crazy. This was our first time (other than our cruise to Mexico, which is a little different) flying out of the country. A little stressful at times, but thank goodness we weren't alone and had helped by the other coworkers on the trip!
We took it really easy once we got there because it was a Sunday. We read, took a nap and walked around. This was the view from our room!
We split up the cost with a few others from our group and took a taxi into town!
We took a tour on a glass bottom boat to go see a few of the famous spots. This was before we started moving...and before Scott got super sick!! It almost lost it halfway through. Poor guy gets so motion sick.
We originally went out because they were going to let us get in the water to snorkel. But in the end we couldn't because the waters were too rough. We were there when the moon was the biggest it has been in 60+ years, which threw off the tide and created crazy big waves in a normally calm area!
On the other side of this is another beach and a different ocean. We were right on the border of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
The famous Arch!
After the boat ride, we paid 50 cents to go the bathroom in the most disgusting restroom, then we walked through the tienditas (little shops) where we were BOMBARDED and practiced our bartering skills! We came out with a cute hand stitched dress for Laikyn, some maracas, and a fridge magnet. I really wanted one of those pretty hand painted bowls but I didn't end up getting one there. I caved at the end and bought one at the airport in Mexico! haha!
