We're here.  So far, so good.  Activities to date include:
-Happy hour margaritas down at the beach.
-Swimming in the pool.
-Much quesadilla eating.
-The kids trying to figure out the concept of Mexico.  Is that store Mexico?  Is that tree Mexico? It's all Mexico, we say.  Mexico is all around us.  They look at us like were crazy and then take off running down the beach like they've been here all their lives.
-One big fight with mom followed by a trip to the fabric store.
-Twelve hours of sleep (for us and the kids).

Tomorrow we leave civilization for Yelapa.  I'll report back in a week.  I certainly hope our trip is better than Mighty Girl's. Yikes!
Have a good one.  And drink some tap water in our name.

A thing I like

Twelve hours of sleep.

Beach with kids is great. Now that you're there, isn't Mexico *way* better than Disneyland?
No money belt for you!

I'm glad you're having fun. Ahhh happy hour in the sand sounds lovely. The salad days... How do you say chillax and be safe in Spanish?

Come to think of it, I don't know what Mexico is either; it's been at least 40 years (could that be??). Guess I'll find out next month. No beach though, just a big lake (Patzcuaro) and plenty good restaurants I'm told. I'm nervous about the bugs (the invisible ones) and scorpions but otherwise almost excited. See you in SF!
