Our Mazatlan Christmas

Yes, I do know that it is now March but better late than never!

We had a great Mexican Christmas with the Hunzeker family. Ellie was just getting over her first ear infection so the flight out was a bit rough at times. Once we got into Mexico she perked right up and we had a lot of firsts!

Elisabeth experienced sand for the first time:

And of course after a few minutes the sun hat was ripped off and her mouth was full of sand. We spent a lot of time trying to keep that sand out of her mouth! And out of her eyes, and her nose, and her ears... we had to plaster her in sunscreen every time we went out and the sand loved to stick ALL over. Lots of fun!

Some other firsts:
First time sitting under an umbrella tree on the beach with Grandma

First time exploring the beach and feeling the waves with Grandpa

First time eating Mexican cuisine... and apparently she liked it!

And it was the first time meeting Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Call!

It was great to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa. Ellie especially loved Grandma's dangly earrings. We also got to see cousin Natalie and it was fun for the girls to play together.

There was a lot to do on the beach and we spent quite a bit of time playing beach volleyball. Here you can see Dan executing a great spike. Ellie and I were up on the grass cheering him on!

After a long day of swimming I liked to lounge out on the balcony with a delicious pineapple smoothie and my kindle. It's a rough life.

Here is the Hunzeker family on Christmas morning:

Our little family after a great Christmas breakfast.
I guess the breakfast wasn't that great for little Ellie.

We had a wonderful time swimming,

enjoying beautiful sunsets

and relaxing.

It was a great family vacation!
