On our first morning in Cabo, after breakfast Orelia wanted to sit on the edge of the pool and dangle her toes in the water. I had to laugh, as it was pretty much the exact same thing I wanted to be doing.
Last year we spent a great vacation in Cabo as a family of four, and when we got home John immediately started researching our next Cabo vacation.
The weather is fabulous, it's close to California, and it's only one time zone away. It's perfect for families, so John decided to recruit some of our family friends to join us for our next Cabo adventure.
John found the perfect house complete with three bedrooms packed with bunk beds and a pool with a shallow area the babies could play in.
It had tons of space for the kids to play when we weren't in the pool or at the beach.
There were four families and a total of seven kids. Orelia was the oldest at the ripe age of three and a half. (It was a madhouse.)
Orelia especially loved vacationing with her best friends and thrived on the craziness. Bennett liked all the activity too, thankfully.
By the end of the week Bennett was saying the names of his two buddies there (one boy is three months older and the other is a week older). He's not knitting friendship bracelets for them yet, but our forced friendships seem to be working okay so far.
Orelia got to spend the week sleeping on the top bunk of a bunk bed and having a "sleepover" with her friend.
Half the time she complained to us that her friend talked to much in bed, but I know she would much rather lose a little sleep to chatting than sleep by herself.
We are so lucky to get to vacation in such a beautiful place with such wonderful friends.
