Sneaking to the internet cafe

This getaway had been planned last February, and am so glad we made it here. It's our little vacation for our anniversary/early thanksgiving break/flying south for warmth like the birds...

Landed safely yesterday and drove to a fun seaside resort and spa down in Mexico with friends. Now I am taking a mini break at the internet cafe before heading out for dinner. Though we are still coughing away and bumped with meds, we are definitely feeling better here with the warmer temperatures. It was 15 degrees back home compared to 80 degrees down here. It was a soothing night in our 7th floor room overlooking the pool and the ocean and we were lucky to get the same view as the picture above (the ocean starts where the pool ends). Listening to the ocean waves crashing on the beach was also calming and a much needed break for me.

Today, I spent the morning at the local Super Walmart, picking up some essential items for breakfasts and snacks for our 2-bedroom apartment that came with 2 kitchenettes. Also, being the worrying mom that I am, I have been busy re-washing all the cutery and tableware in the dishwasher before using anything. Will try making some french toast and fruit salad tomorrow for breakfast. Can't wait to mess up this kitchen area!

I want to thank you all again for your concern and kind comments. The kids are slowly but surely recovering, and we are only spending 1/2 at the time at the swimming pool. Needed to include this info for grandma who will be reading this. Unfortunately I forgot the cable for my camera, so will only be uploading more pictures when I get back home next week. The above picture was taken from the resort's website.

Cheers everyone, and have a good weekend!
