Update from the beach

Hola, amigos!! I have a little secret---Steve and I are in Puerto Vallarta!! That's right, JUST Steve and I. Incredible, no?

This is the view from our hotel balcony. Aaaaaah.

We're here for a grand total of 4 days, so we've tried to make them all full of fun. Today was the best yet. We took a dune buggy tour through the jungly mountains. Steve doesn't hold back when it comes to the gas pedal, and we got soaked! So incredibly filthy by the end, but it was great.

After the buggy tour, we came back to the hotel, cleaned up, and headed to the pool for a while. Then, I went to a cabana over the ocean and got a massage. A massage! On the beach with the sound of the waves and the sun and ohhhhh, it was beautiful.

Back to my babies in the morning, and I can hardly wait. It's been hard to leave them this time. I know they're in wonderful hands, and we talk to them a couple of times a day, but there's something just not right about being away from them. Don't get me wrong, this has been amazing and restorative and so dang fun to spend the time with my darling husband, but oh, my heart just wants to hold my kids again!

So real life starts again tomorrow, and the fun of vacation is over. We've had lots of baby name conversations, and the list is now expanded from just Buster and Gomez to include Francisco, Cosmo, Desmond, and Sidney. Slight progress in the right direction, but I don't think we're there yet! I actually really really like Sidney, but I do know a lot of little girls named Sydney. Opinions, anyone??

I know a lot of girl Sydneys too.
It looks like you are having a lot of fun - how nice to get away in the middle of winter.

How fabulous! I especially like the dune buggy adventure...way to be, guys. Hooray for restorative vacations. Cosmo? Like the BYU mascot? You know, Jevan might not talk to you again if you choose that one :)
