Cabo 2015

 Sun and Fun!  That is how we wanted to end summer so we decided to book a trip to Cabo before summer came to an end and the craziness of school begins.

CAB-OOOOO here we come!!!


Each day of our trip was spend the same way.  Swimming all day, dinner, and some cruising around the resorts until 9:30 bed time.  We were always by the pool bright and early.  



The best part of the pool was the huge pirate ship in the middle of it.  The kids would swim around the pirate ship all day long.  We would put on pretend treasure hunts and adventures for them, which they just loved!

Madden was a little fish the whole trip.  We just need to work on using two arms.

The sister resort had a whale water slide that the kids saw on the first night we were there.  They begged to ride it, but the pool there wasn't as good as our resorts so Jake and I tried to get them to forget about it.  After a full day of begging for the water slide we took them over to the resort to ride it.  They both took turns riding it with Jake and got really scared how fast it went after just one ride and demanded we go back to our pool.  We didn't hear one more thing about the water slide until we were on our way to the airport and we asked Skylar and Madden their favorite part of the trip.  To which Madden proclaimed the water slide!!  I don't get that kid sometimes.  


Cannonball!  Madden was shouting cannonball all trip.






 The beautiful blue, warm ocean water is what I was the most excited about.  I could of been in the ocean for hours.  Even though the water was deemed swimable, it was still way too rough for the kids so we were only able to go down for short periods of time because they preferred the pool.  We would take turns during nap time to take dips in the ocean and Jake even fit in some paddle boarding.






With all the swimming and sun the kids would pass out every day in their lounge chairs for afternoon naps by the pool.  When they would wake up it was either smoothie or ice cream time.  I was addicted to the Bob Marley's.  




After being in the pool since 9:00 AM we would end our pool days around 4:00 PM to get some down time before heading to dinner. The hotel has a trolley that takes you to and from the two other sister resorts.  We would take the trolley a ton during our trip.  Madden absolutely loved riding it.  


We ate most of our dinners at the hotel buffet.  It wasn't a typical meal if Madden didn't have 4-5 plates in front of him.  


Every evening a theme dance show was put on.


Skylar loved watching the shows each evening!


 Skylar when asked what her favorite part of the trip was she simply said "Just spending time with my family."

  1. I just loved Skylar"s favorite part of "spending time with my family." And Madden surrounded by buffet plates was a riot! Brother, can those 2 kids swim! What a wonderful AND relaxing trip for you all. The trolley is right up Madden's alley, too.
    Love,
