I did it! I talked Trent into taking us to Rocky Point, Mexico for the weekend. Yes, we will have to get our conference talks from the internet, Ensign, and possibly someone DVRed them for us.
My parents store a nice trailer down there and we got to borrow it. After only 4 hours of driving, including one stop in Gila Bend ( the bumpy road and McDonalds caused an adverse reaction, or puke, in other words. Nobody else seemed affected.) we arrived right around 9:30pm Friday night. We woke up to a chilly morning and the sounds of the ocean splashing against the shore and seaguls calling to eachother. It warmed up in no time. We had so much fun playing in the sand, finding hermit crabs, flying our kite, collecting shells, and splashing our feet in the water.
I'm sure Trent would've enjoyed himself a little more with a sand rail or four-wheeler to play on, but I was glad to have him there with me, playing with the kids. I love the food in Mexico. We had delicious potato and cheese burritos, taquitos, and tamales, all from the comfort of our little blanket on the beach, brought to us by vendors walking by. We also ate at Pollo Papago in town, the owner Martin (Mar-teen) knows our whole family since my dad has been taking us there for years. Before we left we had some tasty quesadillas and fish tacos. Ahh delisioso. Two days was perfect.This belly isn't from all the good food. 23 1/2 weeks pregnant.
The way home wasn't as quick, since we waited about an hour and a half to get throught the border. Sunday afternoon seems to be a pretty busy time to go home from a nice weekend getaway in Mexico.
