Puerto Vallarta with BFFs

Joe and I just returned from an amazing 5 day, 4 night trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with our best friends (and fellow quad parents)~ the McNultys! We were both celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversaries.

 

It was absolutely PERFECT! and I have a billion pics, so I decided to break them up and post about each day.

 

Day 1.

Mom and Dad eagerly head to the airport while Auntie Liz begins her week long adventure of taking care of SIX KIDS! Amazing. Love her. ROCKSTAR! Aunt Ashley, and Papa & Granna also took turns with “the watching of the kids”. God bless. Couldn’t do it without them. Beyond blessed to have such incredible family and friends who made this trip possible.

 

Despite a super long delay (and plane malfunction), we were SO EXCITED to be starting our vacay! ~ especially since the DFW temps were in the 30’s and raining…

…the traditional pic on the plane before the flight (Joe is always thrilled about these, heh heh. Hey, when you are married to Suz Steece, you have to put up with a TON of pictures! ha)

After an easy 2 hr 15 min flight, we arrived at our gorgeous Westin hotel. (The same place Joe and I honeymooned 10 years ago!)

Then we strolled along the marina and ended up at the lighthouse for sunset. Perfection.

Inside, looking up at the lighthouse….yep, that’s a lot of rickety steps to climb to the top! ~but SO worth it…

Its funny, because as the pictures progress, we get darker and plumper. (or, at least I do!) haha. ~ signs of an awesome trip!

Winking smile
