Mexico for Spring Break!

We just returned from an amazing 10 days in Puerto Vallarta.  Mike’s parents hosted a birthday bash for their 65th birthdays and the entire Wittman-Oliver-Hamlyn clan descended upon paradise.  This trip was 13 months in the making and it was every bit of fun as we imagined it would be!

After two long flights from DC to Dallas and then to PV, we finally arrived at Casa Macumba!

We had 10 days together and each day was better than the previous one in terms of sun, warmth and relaxation. We spent our mornings at the beach, making sandcastles and splashing in the waves.

And our afternoons at the pool having epic cannon ball and diving contests.

During Norah and Kenzie’s afternoon naps, we would boogie board and walk on the beach, and play volleyball and badminton.

We took family pictures on the beach:

And took breaks from the sun by playing ping pong, relaxing in hammocks and reading with the cousins.

Casa Macumba came with a chef and assistant chef, and we were spoiled each day with lunch poolside and a formal sit-down meal each night for dinner.  We quickly got used to our daily margarita and guacamole fixes!

We watched the sunset every night before playing games and doing puzzles in the evening.

Before we knew it, it was time to fly back east and our perfect spring break was over!
