Last Family Fling - Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!

      For our last trip before David left on his mission, we decided to go to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!  We had never been there, before, but had heard good things about it and it looked beautiful in the pictures.  We flew out super early on a Saturday morning, stopped in Denver and then got there around three in the afternoon.  The resort we stayed at was right on the beach, with two pools, three restaurants and a little market.  The people at the resort and everywhere we went were incredibly friendly and helpful!  The scenery was spectacular and it was pretty much paradise for a week!  We ate soup at the Mexican restaurant at our resort almost everyday and the food was really good.  We took a tour of the city, which included tequila tasting and lunch on Monday.  Then David and Dave went snorkeling for about half a day and had a lot of fun.  Then the next day we went on eleven zip lines up in the mountains which included riding a burro up a mountainside at the end!  We had plenty of time to enjoy the beach and just relax, read and nap. It was a bit strange being on a family trip without Tom, and David seemed a little distracted with his impending mission on his mind.  I am glad we went, though and we will definitely go back when we can all be together again!
