After a delicious dinner by the family that took us to Mexico, we took off for Rocky Point, Mexico! It was a little longer drive than I expected, but highly pleasant. We didn't get to the border until after dark, so I was naturally a littler nervous after all the stories I've heard about northern Mexico, but the family we went with go to Mexico all the time and thought we were safe so I trusted them. So with trust in hand the car ride was awesome. There was much laughter and silly things said. I was was loving it so much I took to being the family historian and recorded some of my favorite things said.
For your viewing pleasure, here are a couple quotes from the car ride. You may have had to be there, but regardless of that I'm posting them.
Michael – "Dad, did you know there are extended versions of Lord of the Rings? So instead of the trilogy being 9 hours, it’s like 14 hours!”
Dad – "Oh really!"
Michael –" I feel a father’s day gift coming on next February!"
Valerie – "Wait why February? Father’s Day is in June!"
Michael – "Oh right! I had no clue when Father's Day was so I just said February."
Dad – "This road keeps getting narrower and narrower."
(This was in Mexico.)
Michael – "Pretty soon it’s going to become one lane -"
Valerie – "With both lanes of traffic coming on each other."
Michael – "That’s an extreme version of chicken!"
Jen – "At 90 miles per hour!"
Michael and I were having a grand ol' time laughing and come to find out we might have annoyed the wee one in our family just a bit (and normally she's the one laughing hysterically!). Whoops!
When we finally reached the house, this is what greeted us:
(Though these pictures were taken after we arrived).
|The sinks were painted so beautifully.|
|This was in my shower. It was awesome.|
|I fell in love with all the beautiful mosaics. It makes me want some in my home someday.|
And you just stepped outside and there was the beach. They were on a beautiful private beach that was nicknamed, "Shell Beach," which is no exaggeration as you'll see from the pictures. Both the house and the beach were absolutely beautiful.
|And to end today's post. Michael on the computer, in Mexico, somehow managing to look grumpy.|
More to come!
P.S. I was trying to figure out how to format pictures on this thing so they weren't all in a straight line, but I didn't succeed. If anyone knows how to, you should let me know!
