Waiting to welcome us.
We had a suite and a normal room which was really nice,
they were adjoining. First there was Dad's room.....
and my room.
In case you are wondering where Los Cabos is, it is on the tip of the Mexican peninsula that is beneath California. Los Cabos is between the towns Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos is also where Gretchen and Kyle went for their Honeymoon.
On the second day there, we went site
seeing, first we went to San Jose del Cabo, which
is the older and quieter town.
The yellow van in the foreground is a taxi,
most of their taxi's are that size.
After seeing nothing but brown at home it was refreshing to see vibrant
colors and plants that did not look like they were dead. :-D
On one of our free nights Dad and I enjoyed dinner here.
An electrician's nightmare.
Then it was on the Cabo San Lucas the " wild" town,
and the Glass blowing place.
so it was a fun treat for me.
When they were done, they took a piece of paper and
touched it to the hot glass and it went up in flames.
Then we went to the flee market. I do not have any good pictures of it. If you picture to yourself a room crammed full of bright colorful tickets, so many that you do not know where to look first, plus getting turned around all the time because it is practically a labyrinthine maze. Then add the noise of people talking in both Spanish and English. Then you will have a pretty good idea of what it was like.
I will be posting more pictures later.

He had a blast. Nothing like a knowledgeable and wonderful older brother to explore museums with!

At first she was a little overwhelmed with the new surroundings and many happily staring relatives. Here I actually got her to laugh. I think that it was because she wasn't looking at me. You know. . . . . . . . . . . scary grandmas! "smile"
Mom and Dad joined us for a little Memorial Day cookout.
Dad's the best baby holder. He always sings/hums/whistles/mumbles these wonderful tuneless songs. He's done it with all the kids. I loved it! So sweet and comforting.
Oooo look at those kissable cheeks.
Sorry everyone, I'm a new Grandma.
We decided Alaina needed a new "Do". (observe previous pictures) So out came the baby barrettes and-- ta da -- "Whale Spout"!!
Alaina saves her biggest smiles for Kyle. She loves her daddy!
Once she's safe in Daddy's arms she can look around at everything and everyone new!
