Our home away from home

Danny and I spent the weekend at our favorite vacation spot. It did take me a little longer to get adjusted since I was without my sweet Ellie for the first time. But there's nothing better for home sickness than a warm ocean breeze. (Yes, I did mean warm) Maybe I was meant to live on a coast.

Ahhh... Rocky Point

I love it for its way better that California beaches,

yummy fruit Popsicles
(and taco stands-not photographed),

nice, yet (occasionally) affordable condos

swimably, warm ocean
(I'd say April to November)

cheap beach attire

and hot surfer dudes.

I love just packing up our beach gear (chairs, towels, blanket, umbrella, smashball, frizbee, football, skim boards, water, snacks, sunscreen-we like to be prepared), heading down to the beach, and then enjoying hours of fun and relaxation.

I can't help but smile and want to be back just thinking about it. We've noticed that every time we go down, we spend the entire trip back trying to plan out our next trip. Do you blame us?

And I am not, by the way, trying to convince anyone to make a trip down. No offense, but we would be just as happy if we were the only ones there with the beach all to ourself.

I sure wish we could have gone to Rocky Point. It sounds like so much fun. I need a vacation!!!

So was it just the two of you? FUN FUN FUN! And good job for taking a getaway without kids - or kid in your case :). I wonder if we'll ever go to the beach... Jared HATES crowds of people and would much rather be in the mountains fishing. Looks like you had a great time!

Okay, so I hope you guys were as serious about going as we are. Like honestly, now that is all Philip and I can think about! So I just looked at the calendar to verify, and my last day for the semester is Thursday the 11th, and then I don't go back until Monday the 29th. Sooo, anytime in there we would totally be available. So let us know what is good for you and we will get this thing planned so that we all have something super fun and exciting to look forward to! Viva la Mexico!
