This is a quick note to say "Adios!" for a few days. Our family has been generously invited by our friends the Martins to stay with them in their off-the-hook Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point) Mexico home for a few days over Spring Break. We are heading down there with four families for some serious fun. Get this, we've got seven adults, three five-year old boys, and five girls ranging in age from eight weeks to nine years. How can that not be crazy fantastic? I'm told we have plenty of room for everyone, an expansive private beach where the kids can be wild and free, and all we really have to worry about is our next meal, or cocktail. Nick and I are in charge of the bloody mary supplies and the vacation soundtrack. I think we can handle that.
And no, we are not worried about driving into Mexico. This is not Juarez, and there is very little, if any, drug cartel activity in this sleepy gringo vacation spot just three and a half hours from Phoenix.
I think my oncologist would agree that my limited alcohol consumption mandate doesn't really hold up when I am out of the country, and that Mexican beer doesn't count anyway, right?
I'll be back to my blog in about a week with plenty of photos and stories from this wild getaway. In the meantime, I want to say how beyond grateful I am to our friends who are making this trip possible. I hope to repay a fraction of the generosity that we have been shown over the past year. Truly, we are humbled.
