san jose del cabo

Me and Collin (with the kiddos) just returned from a week long trip to Mexico, it was amazing! But just so you know if your planning a trip there a week is not enough time (a month just might do it in my opinion).  
  This was our first time taking the kids with us. I had a few reservations about being able to relax in Mexico with a 2 1/2 year old and a 11 month old (not to mention flying with them) but it was so worth the extra effort to take them! I loved seeing my kids explore somewhere new, with awe and wonder at every little thing. Kasen loved the pool and would've swam all day if he could, He chatted with the locals (kinda) and loved riding the "elegator" (elevator) at the condo. Sylvie was just happy to have the attention of her Grandma and Grandpa. Oh yeah did I mention Grandma and Grandpa where there? It made the trip so much easier to have that extra help and for some reason my kids are always so much more well behaved with their grandparents around...I wonder why? ;)

We flew stand by so we had a overnight layover in San Diego. We got to our hotel room at night so I didn't see the amazing view we had until morning. I woke up and stepped out onto the balcony to see the morning sun shining over the bay and immediately regretted not taking my SLR camera. This was just one of the many camera worthy moments.
The deck of the Lloyd and Debbie's condo...can't you just imagine eating dinner out there, listening to the sound of the sea, feeling the warm ocean breezes? The rest of the Condo is equally as stunning. It is located in San Jose Del Cabo which is about 20 minutes from downtown Cabo. I love the historic little town of San Jose. It is perfect for a family trip, as there are excellent restaurants and shopping in town and Cabo is just a short drive if you want to check out a few of the tourist activities. I didn't even attempt to take photos of the rest of the condo with  my little point and shoot as I knew it would not do it justice.
