Charlie, children, Chloe, Dexter, dogs, family, life, Malinalco, Mandy, mommy, parenting, personal, puppies, vacation
Last weekend we took our first vacation, just the 3 … err, 5 of us.
That’s right – 2 adults, 2 dogs and 1 baby.
To celebrate a friend’s birthday, a group of 14 of us rented a hacienda in Malinalco. It was beautiful, tranquil and something straight out of a postcard. And then our family showed up.
Chloe got into a “scuffle” with one of the hacienda dogs. Twice. Charlie very happily dropped the balls that flew out of the paddle-ball court into the pool. Every time. And Dexter developed a temporary dislike for his portacrib, which lasted about the duration of the trip. Our friends were kind enough to say they never heard him cry at night. But in a building made of stone and concrete with open-air hallways, I am certain they were just being nice … very nice.
Despite the craziness, we really did have a fantastic weekend. It was so refreshing to get out of the city and spend time with friends.
We even had a chance to snap a few photos (well, OF COURSE we took photos!)
