Puerto Vallarta and more

So, as you can all well imagine, we are enjoying having our children home for the holidays.  They arrived on December 13th, in Puerta Vallarta, so we spent the first week at the beach.  It was gloriously wonderful to just be together.  Having never been to Vallarta for a vacation before, I'm not gonna lie, it was wonderful.  I can see why people do that yearly.  

We left Vallarta on Saturday, the 20th at 8 a.m. as we had a 'posada' (Christmas party) to attend at 2 p.m. in Guadalajara. It was a little rushed but we arrived in true Canadian fashion, on time.  It was with our 'family' from the gym.  The kids were tired but did their best to interact with our friends, but as you can well imagine, it was somewhat tiring.  Several speak various amounts of English but still someone stiltedly.  Mike can understand a fair amount but the other 2 found it tough.  All that said, they still enjoyed the experience and made some new friends. 

So here are some of the pics from our time together so far... ...

They were very creative
And a Christmas piñata

So, as you can see, they are not getting to sit around much.  I think they are having fun. We are certainly enjoying each activity with them.


  1. So much fun and so many memories made!

    1. Yes Betty, so many memories. Three weeks sounded like lots but now with their departure pending, it seems so short. But it was a gift and I am thankful.
