Cabo Part One - The Resort

Our week in Mexico was awesome. Minus the frequent dates I had with the porcelain bowl, it was a super relaxing trip. Once I got past saying goodbye to my baby, it was actually very nice to not have to worry about naps and meals and diapers every day. We stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort in Cabo San Lucas. It was a gorgeous resort with breathtaking views. We woke up to this view every morning from the balcony of our room:

We spent a lot of time lounging by the pool, reading books and soaking up the sun. We only ended up visiting three of the resort's five pools, and they were all equally beautiful. We liked the main pool because it was close to the beach. However, I think my favorite pool was the Sky Pool, located on the very top of the resort's mountain. It overlooked miles and miles of the Pacific Ocean. This shot doesn't do justice to how beautiful it was.

It was so hot and humid that we spent most of our time in the pool.

That blue background? Nothing but ocean hundreds of feet below us.

The front porch of the lobby had a bunch of quaint rocking chairs where we sat to chat or wait for our car.

We found a cute little church to go to on Sunday that held an English-speaking meeting. Since Tricia is the only one of us that speaks fluent Spanish, we didn't really want to sit through a meeting in another language and not be able to understand anything. Only our family and another large family from Sandy, Utah were in attendance. So, we found a chorister, pianist, and speakers among us and held a little impromptu meeting. The whole Sacrament Meeting was less than 45 minutes. It's too bad that doesn't happen when we have Blake with us!

All of the grounds at the Pueblo Bonito were landscaped beautifully. Bright trees and tropical flowers covered every square inch of the resort. The Tanners brought some fun dresses for us to wear from previous trips they've taken to Mexico.
