Vacation day two & three: more from mexico

On our second morning in Mexico we were reminded that the sun is much hotter than it is at home.   It was so cool on our first day that sunscreen somehow slipped my mind. 



We spent the day at the casa.



In the afternoon we decided to walk down to the beach. 

And if by walk you think I mean hike down a mountain on a at times very steep and narrow trail dug out by a 90 year old resident you’d be correct.

I didn’t take any pictures on the way down as I was too busy holding on to Hannah for dear life while also keeping out a close eye for any snakes that wanted to attack me. 

You never know.

The beach was beautiful and we had it all to ourselves.  Eli was a little unsure about the water but Hannah and daddy had a great time playing!





The surf was bringing in thousands of little baby animals of some kind (maybe lobster or crab).  Hard to tell but every little shiny dot in the below picture was one of those animals. 


After playing for a while it was time to venture back up the mountain.  The kids were going to need some bribes encouragement to hike that trail again.


And finally – a picture with Grampy’s right hand woman Judy at the base of the trail.  


Up was easier to trek than down.

We made it back with Oreo’s to spare. 

On our last day in Mexico I only took a few pictures.


One of which was from the car on our way out.


Thankfully it didn’t attack me.

This is probably the scariest blog post I've seen all day. First you had my skin hurting from looking at Hannah's picture but then you had me jumping up in my chair from fright with that snake picture. Sheesh! Thanks a lot.

BTW, it does look like you guys had a great time. The smiles say it all.

They don't look to be in any pain so I'm guessing they survived.

Eek, snakes!
