Dear Kurt,

Waking up on our third day in Mexico and we had already developed a lack of concern for time. We rolled out of bed. It was light outside so it must have been later than the day before. 

We immediately got dressed and loaded up our cars. We were having breakfast in town today. Mckinzie and Clair knew of a good place. They accepted our mob of people graciously.

The kids sat at a table off to the side of ours where we were constantly breaking up fights and drying tears. But the food came soon enough and it was delicious. The kids had ginormous stacks of pancakes and you had some sort of eggs with sauce  I had the chorizo eggs. They were so good. We also had chocolate milk that looked more like a chocolate milkshake with the whipped cream on top. 

From there we parted ways. The girls grabbed ice cream bars and took the kids back to the beach. You guys left for Devins four wheeling birthday outing. 

After hours of playing back at the beach, you boys returned, talking about how that was the best two hours of their life's. Nothing like a four wheeler and some wide open hills to make a man happy. I'm sure your lungs are filled with dust. 

Around what I am assuming was mid afternoon I took Molly up to the house to bathe cause she was complaining of sand in her cracks and chaffing. Three days on the beach will do that to you.

It took some convincing to get molly to go back to the beach. When we returned you boys were long gone. Going on a man walk, is what I was told. It must have been quite the male bonding experience cause you were gone for hours and by the time you got back the kids were starving and since you guys picked up dinner on your way back home we didn't know whose food was whose. 

By the time we sat on the beach with our burritos in hand the sun was getting low in the sky and the tide was going way out. Our very own little tide pools started making an appearance.

While the sun slowly set we all played in the shallow waters, talked, and watched the sky turn colors. It was a gorgeous evening. The type you want to relive over and over. 

We played frisbee till it was way too dark to see anymore then we packed up our stuff and hiked back to the house where we through the kids in baths and showers and kissed them goodnight. 

Then it was adult time. We busted out the game Things and some salsa, chips, and cookies and stayed up late playing and laughing and poking fun not wanting to turn in on our last night in Mexico. 

And that concluded our final full day in Mexico. 

Sincerely, Lori
