My husband and I took our 2 kids to Cabo San Lucas for a little vacation- since our April London trip was waylaid by the Icelandic volcano, we made up for it by going to Mexico.
Okay, it wasn't exactly England- but it was a rare and special time for just my family to spend some relaxing time together.
I have never been to an all inclusive resort before- it was a real treat. We stayed at the Riu Palace and let me tell you- they know how to do it up right! Great food, flowing drinks, lovely rooms and pools- beautiful beach-just perfect. We felt pampered and returned rested. 5 nights is just enough- any more than that would be too much, like (as my brother Chip put it ) it would be like being locked in a dessert bar! I painted every day, here's my airport sketch in Houston.
And here is a view from my lounge chair.
It's wonderful to be home, and back in the USA.
I will remember our vacation forever though, it was wonderful.
