Mexico Trip 2015

Summer is almost over, and we've been crazy busy with vacations and visiting family! A long long time ago...back in May...We took our yearly trip down to Rocky Point, Mexico! It was such a fun trip, we all had a great time!

We left early in the morning, got half way there, and Abigail got car sick. It was awful! All she had for breakfast was a McDonald's hash brown and her cup of milk. I'll just let you imagine the mess that we had to clean up. And we were in the middle of nowhere, the nearest gas station was 20 minutes away, we didn't have direct access to an extra pair of clothes or diapers, and her car seat was COVERED. She wasn't phased by it at all thank goodness, so we had her in her diaper standing on the side of the road (as far away from traffic as we could without venturing into the desert) while we cleaned her car seat the best we could. I think we went through half a pack of wipes!

Thankfully my in laws were staying at one of the nice resorts for a few days so we got to put the car seat straps and cover in the washing machine. I can't even imagine how bad it would smell if we didn't wash it, since there's no washing machine at the cabin. I'm sure we would have found a way to get it clean, but modern technology is so much easier and a great blessing!

It's an anemone! I saw a sea cucumber too, but I guess I didn't get a picture... :(

When we took our trek out to the tide to fine sand dollars, we met this nice couple walking their dog. Abigail, having grown up with 3 big dogs, starts running up to him. We have no idea if it's a friendly dog, or not. Obviously from this picture, he was super friendly and loved Abigail. 

At the "mall" aka local street market a little old lady was selling these ADORABLE hand made minion hats! We had to get it, and it was fairly cheap. She also sold shell creatures for really cheap so we got a few. She even threw in some extras for free! She was so sweet. 

Abigail LOVED the ocean! The tide would go out about a mile and a half, and the whole family would venture out there and collect sand dollars and shells.

I have no idea why their hair looks SO red in this picture. It's really not that red...

The sunset is just breathtaking here in Mexico. While we were there, I took a time lapse video of the sunset. If you haven't seen it, it's on my Instagram! Be sure to check it out, it's pretty cool!

It was such a great family trip before the craziness of the summer, with hubby taking a summer class and the girls' trip to OHIO for a month!
