From AZ to RP The Final Chapter

I am finally getting around to posting my Final Chapter of Mexico. 
I can't believe my week there is over! 

Here was what the end of my week there looked like. 

Sunday:
Went to church with the Fam.
Got a heat rash {which totally ruined the rest of the the trip}
Had some delish Pasqua dinner. 
{Pasqua means Easter in Spanish}
Went to the Aquarium 
Spend time updating the blog
Watched the Fam play Kemps
Watched the sunset
Built a fire pit
and spent more time with the fam

Monday:
Woke up and sat out on the porch
wanted to tan but couldn't because my heat rash 
But still went out on the beach!
Went shopping!
Went to Mare Blue with the hubs! 
{this delish Italian restaurant}

Tuesday:
Woke up and sat out on the porch
{knowing it was my last morning on the beach for a while}
Went inside and wrote my BIL on DearElder! 
{love him and miss him!}
Spent time with the hubs
Packed up
Said good bye to Casa De La Buena Vida
Went to Super Ley
Thrifty
and Choya Mall 
to pick up some last minute things
and headed back home!

We had so much fun in Rocky Point! 
And cannot wait to go back!!

From AZ to RP Day Three and Four!

It is Sunday and I am a little bit behind with this blog!
I totally thought I would be able to do a post a day but it turns out that 
all I want to do is sit on the beach and TAN! 
Now I'm not as golden brown as I would like to be and I still have a couple more days to work 
on it but I am pretty happy so far!
I did get a sunburn on my feet 
{even though I put mounds of sunblock on them!}

It seems like the days have been rolling together and I don't remember what days I 
did what! We have done a lot of fun things this trip and we are really having fun!

Thursday I know we went to "Super Ley" 
{the local grocery store where my one year of Spanish really comes in handy!}
At the grocery story they sell fresh fish and boy is it nasty lookin'!


I was really grossed out and didn't want to take this picture! 
Doesn't this gross you out?!

We also went shopping!


We also ate Churros!




























Ate Tacos at the Malacon!



Saw a random castle house! 


























{Sunset as we were driving into town!}


And of Course...

























hung out on the beach!
I so don't want this relaxation to end!!

Happy Easter!

We were in Mexico this Easter!
We enjoyed going to church, being on the beach and being with family. 
I remember President Monson's closing remarks this past General Conference
when he was speaking of the Savior he said:
"I am grateful to Him. He taught us how to live. He taught us how to die. He secured our salvation."
Following he shared this beautiful poem by Emily Harris

"The linen which once held Him is empty.
It lies there,
Fresh and white and clean.
The door stands opened.
The stone is rolled away,
And I can almost hear the angels singing His praises.
Linen cannot hold Him.
Stone cannot hold Him.
The words echo through the empty limestone chamber,
“He is not here.”
The linen which once held Him is now empty.
It lies there,
Fresh and white and clean
And oh, hallelujah, it is empty." 

I too am grateful for the Savior and the many things He has given me. I know He lives and I know He will come again. I cannot wait to see his smiling face and hear the angles sing.

From AZ to RP Day Two!

What a relaxing week! It sure cannot get much better than this!
Sitting in the sun

Walking along the beach
Eating dinner at El Pollo Lucas
Having Thrifty
Realizing that this week is "Semana Santa"
{Holy Week}
And everyone and their cousin {literally}is here!


My "floppy" hat look


Relaxing in the sun 

 Low tide


Love this saying!


Soada in El Pollo Lucas

The moon came up at midnight and was so red! 
Here it is coming up with the reflection on the water!

From AZ to RP Day One!

You read that right!
My vacation has begun!
and lemme tell ya... it's amazin'!

I love the beach and I love hanging out with family and friends! 
Driving from our house in AZ to our other house in RP is a 3.5 hour trip.
Throughout the trip we see A LOT of cactus, dirt and mountains!
This trip we decided to stop by Organ Pipe National Monument.
This is a park that houses hundreds of Organ Pipe Cactus.


Not an Organ Pipe Cactus 
 The scene driving through AZ 

The scene driving through Mexico

 Looks like we made it! 

 

Now THIS is the scene I have been looking for!
