Mexico - Day One

After being in California for 4 days, we headed off to Mexico with my best good friend and her hubby. We left Julianne in the loving care of my parents and headed out for 5 glorious nights south of the border! We went to Puerto Vallarta and we had a wonderful time. I'm not going to lie, I missed our girl and it was hard being away from her for that many nights. Up until this, I had only done 2 nights. I'm with her 99% of the time so it's weird being away. It was a good way for me to get rested and revitalized though as well as spend some much needed time with the hubby and our best good friends. I have way to many pictures for one post so I'm going to break it down into a few because I don't have 3 hours to sit here while blogger uploads my photos. I'll start with Day one.
We had a great flight from LA to Puerto Vallarta (Randi and I watched Sex and the City the movie and the guys watched one of those Bond movies). We got through customs relatively quickly and a short van ride later, we were at our resort (which was about 15 miles outside the city). We spent some time getting checked in and then A LOT of time doing this:

That's Randi and I sitting at the tours table where you book all the stuff you want to do while you are there. To say this took a long time is an understatement (I wish you could see Randi's face in this picture). It was o.k. though because we had our boys to go and fetch us drinks while we were waiting. We booked a lot of fun stuff which you will see in coming posts. After that, we went to check out our rooms which were really nice and the view from them which was even better: We showered, got ready and walked to dinner:

We stopped to pose on the way to dinner:
We posed at dinner too. Check out the view from our table. It was a beautiful night and the food was good at the Italian place (good Italian food in Mexico - who knew?)


After dinner it was pretty late and we headed to the bar/club at our resort for a bit. It was karaoke night though so we didn't stay long. Seriously. BAD. We had an early night as we were all pretty tired from our journey. I'm glad we got a good night's sleep because the next day we did something that we needed a lot of energy for - one of the most fun things I've ever done. More to come on that later!
