Family Vacation in Mexico :: Our Trip in 47 Photos

We just got back from a week long family vacation in Mexico. In that time, we somehow managed to snap over 1,300 photos. Since we returned, I edited them down to less than 600. And from that batch, I’ve decided to pick my 47 absolute favorites to share with you (although there are MANY others I love as well!!!).

These photos represent so much of our time and help tell the story of our trip. To say we had a great time would be an understatement. We had our fair share of meltdowns, terrible flights, and kids missing their “normal food,” but those moments already feel like distant memories.

Those stressful times are so short lived relative the the memories we’ll have forever.

So without further ado, here is our trip in 47 pictures (chronologically).

1. Our new high flyer coming out strong on her first day in the pool

Girls in Mexico_May 2015

We had such a blast!

And for those of you who have asked me, we stayed at Velas Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It’s super kid friendly, super fun, and the staff is super duper friendly.  🙂

That’s all for now!
