We returned last night from a lovely babymoon in San Jose del Cabo, refreshed and relaxed and in a minor panic about everything that needs to be done in the next 8 weeks before the bean gets here!!
|Morning capp with a view...|
We departed Friday morning, leaving the boys in our nanny Lolo's capable hands (first time they've ever spent the night with anyone who isn't family! Nini and Pa took over on Saturday am). Flight was quick and uneventful and after an annoyingly long trek through customs (apparently I wasn't quite pregnant enough for the customs official to take pity on us and pluck us from the long line of travelers excited to get their vacations started!), we arrived at Cabo Azul just in time to throw down some poolside tacos and enjoy the last few minutes of sunshine.
The hotel we stayed at is great - highly, highly recommend. This was our second time back (we stayed here for Greyson's babymoon in August 2013) and I cannot say enough good things. Service is attentive, everything is brand new (they had to close for a year thanks to Odile and just recently re-opened in September 2014) and the decor is how I wish my house could look. Every room is a suite, complete with a separate sitting area that has a pull-out couch so although we opted to leave the kiddos behind this time, it would be a great place to travel as a family if you didn't want to spring for a whole house rental. There are swimming pools everywhere, plush lounge chairs and the location can't be beat, so long as you're planning on spending most of your time in San Jose del Cabo vs. the rowdier Cabo San Lucas. We didn't even venture into Cabo San Lucas this time, instead opting to explore the adorable little town of San Jose and hit up some of our favorite spots for lunches and dinners. Last time I was in Cabo, I departed on the afternoon of Hurricane Odile, which absolutely raged the entire city, so I was happy to see that mostly everything seemed to be restored/rebuilt and tourism was back to normal. It really is one of my favorite places (and so darn convenient from LA!).
|I woke up one morning recently and all of a sudden was HUGE! 32 weeks bump shot - can't beat the backdrop!|
Besides logging a whole lot of pool time, we indulged in some fine dining (Javiers at the hotel the first night, Lolitas for lunch in San Jose on Saturday, our absolute fave, Flora Farms Saturday night and La Forchetta on Sunday to finish off the trip), Grant kicked my ass in some games of Gin Rummy and I got lost in a new book, All the Light We Cannot See.
|Poolside lunch - fresh shrimp and white fish cevice in a coconut water marinade with sliced cucumbers and a grilled romaine salad with chicken - YUM.|
We've got a lot on the horizon with the big move coming up and the new family member joining our crew shortly thereafter and Grant and I are well aware that each of us is going to unfortunately get the brunt of stress taken out on each other, so this was a welcomed getaway, just the two of us that I think we'll fondly look back on in the months to come.
