Spring Break 09

Spring Break 09 was a blast, for the most part.  We went clear to freakin the end of the world to get there.  I don't think I have spent that much time in a car since my dad would make us drive everywhere on our family vacations when I was a kid.  We drove to mexico.  That's right, we drove to Mexico.  Three and a half hours south of Phoenix is a little town called Puerto Penasco, right on the beach in the Sea of Cortez.  Some friends of ours go there every year and absolutely love it so we decided to go with them this year.
The trip started out awesome, pretty nice weather, the kids had a blast and the hotel was much nicer than we anticipated.  We spent every second of every day on the beach and by the pool eating junk food the whole time.  
The "excitement" came Tuesday night.  Lets just say there was a Mexican hospital involved, a few catheters, a 10 hour drive with said catheter, a 2 hour hospital stay in Phoenix and a 5 hour hospital stay in Vegas and 2 nights of no sleep.  The trip could have ended better.  Everything is fine now but those two days were hell and the most pain I have ever been in in my life.
So here are some pics of the fun we had.

Well, it has been awhile since I have posted. I haven't been feeling very well lately but I will try to make up for it.

A few weeks ago we had a "stay"cation. That's a vacation when you don't actually leave town. We went with some good friends of ours to Lake Las Vegas and spent the weekend in the sun. Good times.
We spent the whole day at the pool and spent the whole night making ourselves sick on candy and playing cards. then our kids ruined the next day by waking up at 6 am. Not cool. We were all sharing a suite too, so our friends got a good dose of
Cole that morning. Needless to say, they probably won't ever share a room with us again.

Sorry my finger got in the way of the picture of Willow and Shane. They really are an attractive couple when my finger isn't in the way.
