la segunda parte

Going anywhere with all of us definitely turns heads- you can hear us coming before you see us and then there are a LOT of us, and we are outnumbered by children 2:1. We really like this resort but they make it kind of hard to find food! Some things aren’t open daily, some don’t open until 8 pm, some are only open for breakfast. We spent a solid hour trekking to different restaurants around the resort and ended up back at our hotel. At the beginning of the week we did a big grocery run (well the men did. It helps that the boys both speak spanish). We love having a kitchen for breakfast and lunch and even cooked a lot of our dinners there too- it’s just easier with kids! A lot of pb and j’s. Chips and Salsa. Although I really did miss sharing a room with Morgan and JR, we bunked with them last year and JR cooked all kinds of tasty things for us. His quesadilla hack changed my life.

I can’t remember if I explained how we met Blanca but it’s a sweet story. She works so hard for her family- she’s a single mom and works long hours. She won the top award for her position last year across all of the Vidante resorts down there- she’s amazing! She’s so sweet, loves to see the kids too. I don’t speak Spanish and she doesn’t speak English, and we keep in touch on facebook during the year. One of the highlights of our trip.
