the black family

At the beginning of August, Jason and I went to Cabo San Lucas for a week long vacation with my birth dad and his wife. What an amazing time we had! To make it even more special, Katey got to stay with Nana and Tata, good for her and good for us! Here are some pics from our little adventure!

Mama getting ready to miss Kate before we left! We sure did miss her but it was really nice to have some time away.

Here is the resort that we stayed at, called Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach. It's on the Pacific side of Cabo and is huge. This is only half of it. The rest goes around to the left of the picture.

Here we are with Dan and Sandy. It was so nice to get to spend more time with them. They are really special people to us. Their granddaugther also came with us. She's taking the picture.

Oh well, we have to have at least one sideways picture per entry. This is us waiting at McDonald's. We went on a bunch of time share presentations the first couple days we were there and wound up making more money from those then we took with us. Nice! Who knew that they give cash to go see their little presentation and also a free meal?! We were hooked when we heard the first one was going to pay us $300 plus breakfast. What's a couple of hours for $300?!

We went on a snorkeling Pirate ship too (compliments of one of the time shares Dan and Sandy went on). Right here it looks like we're having fun and that's because at this moment we were. However, just a few short minutes later, the fun dissipated. They took us on this long boat ride to get to this snorkeling area, all fine so far. Well, once we got to the snorkeling area and in the water, people started realizing that the water was pretty rough. Then not too long after we realized that we start hearing people yell. Turns out we swam right into a group of jelly fish, just waiting to sting all of us poor snorkelers. Jason got stung a couple of times, as did Dan. I, however, managed to escape being stung which is a good thing because I probably would have FREAKED out. I'm already afraid of the ocean because of sharks, so having other creatures coming to get us is NOT a good thing! Anyway, it turned out everyone was fine and made it "safely" back on board the pirate ship where they administered some cream to half the people to stop the stinging. Then we started our journey back. *sigh* And half of the people on the boat got sea sick, me and Jason included. Turns out it was a pretty rough day out on the water and they didn't let any more boats go out later that day. Too bad that hadn't happened BEFORE ours left! Needless to say, we've both decided we really don't like boats that much.

Wow, what a vacation! I'm glad you guys had that time and I can't believe how big Katey is! I really need to call you Amber, I have been meaning to, but school has been super busy. Not good to make excuses, I know, but I really miss you guys and want to know how you're doing.
