What a GREAt way to start off the Holidays !! Our trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico December 7-14th, 2008 !!!!

All the kids !! On our vacation's with the Rhodes family, it's a tradition for us to take a picture of the kids together oldest to youngest ! I love that we have (between us that is) ages : 11,10,9,8,7,5 and 2 !! So from oldest to youngest it goes... Mckenna, Kiana, Cason, Mila, Brevin, K.j. and Sela !!!
I LOVE the sun and being in the warmth !!! What a great trip !
Kenna and me in our coordinating suits !! (not planned but cute) :)

I had to tackle Cason down to take a picture this was our last day in Cabo and he was definitely pictured out !

Here is my other BESTEST friend in the whole wide world !!! We are sharing the greatest tamales ever !!! We bought them from a vendor on the beach !!! I often wonder how we don't get sick !! I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD !!! (let me say Mexican food that is authentic) Kenna, Cason and Brevin sharing a brief moment of getting along and playing in the Sea of Cortez ! Lovers beach is in the background !
We were told to eat at the "Original"trailer park restaurant and we did. It was great food and my Mole was the best mole...except for the mole that we get from Rudy's mother when we go to Mazatlan!! Still looking for good mole in Utah ?!

Need I say more !!!! I just love Janie to pieces !!!
Thanks Janie for being such a GREAT friend and "sister" to me !!! We have had some AMAZING trips together and unforgettable memories and I know there are MANY more to come ! I am looking forward to it !!! LOVES !!!
How cute is jane's suit !!! Love it !
Yes this took us a few tries !! Hay what can we say... we are a little rusty, well ok so I TOTALLY speak for myself ! I'm jumping with a used to be dancer !! :)

Love the kids fort !! This is the making of Cason, Mila and Brevin !!! They would make one of these every day by the pool and would play all day ! They also loved to eat their lunch in their forts ! Good thing there was an unlimited supply of towels !! Scotty and I soaking up the sun !!!
The kids playing in the sand! Brevin is always the one to volunteer to be burried ! He LOVES being in the sand !!!

All the kids getting ready to jump off the sand "cliff"

Brevin , Mila and Cason swimming in the scuba pool !!! they loved this more than the regular pool !!

Kenna and Jordan hanging out in the scuba pool ! It's 8 feet 6 inches and it is used to certify people. It is at the Pueblo Bonito Rosa which is another Pueblo located Right in down town Cabo. We spent a day here because this is one of only a few beaches you can actually swim in ! But to all that may stay here it was the worst Mexican food that I have EVER had in Mexico !! Of course we gave in to the vendors that roam the beach ! Kenna had some of these bracelets made for her friends and each of the boys got one! We had a total of nine made, BUT Jane is really the one that kept them busy for mist of the day by having him personalize 30 bracelets for her !!!! YOU GO GIRL !!
The boys got there traditional henna tattoo's !! They have to get them every time we go to Mexico !!! It's scary to see how proud they are of their new tattoo's. Should I be worried ? I figure that if they can get fake ones they will never want a real one ? ... well lets hope !! Kenna also got a little heart on the top of her foot way cute !

What a cute litte boy ! "I LOVE YOU TOO "One night Jane, dusty Scotty and I went to the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica (It's an adults only resort) and had dinner ! It was Amazing food and we had a GREAT time ! We always have a great time with the Rhodes !!!

Scotty and I on lovers beach ! Cason wanted to take a picture of us infront of this "almost" cave in the rocks. We made it a quick picture cause the closer we got to the cave the more we realized it was used more at a potty stop for many I'm sure !!!
Pee-U !!!! many of you looking at this picture noticed Brevin tucked in the rocks ? He was trying to get out of the picture !! CUTE !! :)

Cason and Mila playing a GIANT game of checkers !!

Us in Cabo !!!! Where do I start ??? I have almost 300 pictures and so much to say but I will try to condense it as much as "I" possibly can !!! :) big grin !Jordan came with us to watch the kids when we went out at night to dinner and to be an extra set of eyes !! It was great to have her and the kids...especially kenna loved it !!
Jordan, Kenna and myself !

At the Pueblo Bonito Sunset resort you are not allowed to swim or for that matter touch the water, due to the extreme currents . So we just played in the sand instead !
