The end of April we went on a 7 night Mexican Riviera cruise to celebrate Todd almost being done with his MBA program and also as a last hoorah before Todd sells his soul to his job. I think it was the perfect vacation for us, mainly because of the kids camp. It was REALLY nice being able to drop Evee and Owen off for a few hours every day and have some one else entertain them plus Evee and Owen both LOVED the camp. I got to read/lay out, and Todd and I were even able to eat dinner a few nights without them, which is my definition of an awesome vacation.
When we were booking our cruise it wasn't much more to upgrade to a balcony room and I am so glad that we did. It was fun sitting out on the balcony in the mornings as the boat was coming into the ports and we also ended up spending a lot of time in our room since Owen still takes pretty long naps.
One of the formal nights Owen ended up coming with us because he had just woken up and was grumpy and didn't want to go to the kids camp.
We ate breakfast in our room most mornings cause it was just easier with Evee and Owen and they loved eating their froot loops and watching toons.
Our first day in Cabo San Lucas we had no idea what to do. We hadn't booked any excursions or really even looked into anything, so we talked to a few people trying to sell excursions but we still couldn't decide what we wanted to do so Todd and I took turns getting a massage and then we walked around some of the shops. The second day we were in Cabo I didn't bring my camera because Todd had convinced me that it was going get stolen. Which looking back I kind of think is funny because Cabo is probably more safe that Los Angeles. Anyways, we ended up going to a timeshare presentation because we wanted to use the resort's pool and private beach, which was a HUGE mistake, it was probably one of the nicest resorts that I have ever been to and the Evee and Owen had so much fun at the pool, but the timeshare presentation was beyond frustrating. They were dead set on selling us a timeshare and they were not taking no for an answer. We learned out lesson and we will never got to a time share presentation EVER again.
