We returned from Cabo last night with sun-kissed skin and well-rested minds. The vacation was seriously the perfect mix of fun with friends and relaxation, with plenty of those aforementioned margaritas and more guacamole than one usually consumes in an entire year!
The house we stayed at, Cielos 74, was amazing (thanks to el Daddio, as he's now aptly called!). Four bedrooms, a great kitchen for cooking, private pool, spa and lots of outdoor sitting areas surrounding fire pits. Our beach club, Club Ninety Six was accessible via the two golf carts that were at our disposal all weekend long and our host, Silvana, really went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our stay.

We went to some great restaurants (Flora Farms, which we visited the first night, was really a stand out), spent an unforgettable afternoon on our own private 50 foot catamaran, indulged in lots of poolside relaxation, complete with foot massages (which I imbibed in about an hour before my scheduled swedish for an afternoon of serious bliss!) and we even made it into town one night to partake in some immature vacation partying at El Squid Roe!

And although the trip was incredible and we had so much fun celebrating our big milestone with friends, we were quite anxious to get home last night to the little man (who I'm pretty sure 99% forgot us while we were gone!). I thought having 4th of July on a Wednesday was really going to suck, but being able to spend some QT with Hayes today and tomorrow vs. being at work and back to reality has been very nice ;-)
Here are a few vacation snaps. I'll also post Hayzey's 16 month pictures this week (kodak is migrating over to shutterfly so I'm not sure if they're accessible right now).

|Happy birthday to us!|
We're keeping it super casual for the 4th, heading to our friend's casa in Venice for a beach day and perhaps doing a mini BBQ of our own tomorrow evening. With Hayes' bedtime occurring before the sun even goes down these days (and we put him to sleep at 8!!), not sure if fireworks are in the cards this year, but hopefully we'll be able to see some overhead from our backyard.
In any case, have a happy 4th, wherever you may be!
