Dining Out in Cabo!

cabo 2011 017

Well, we found out that in Cabo, finding a place to eat was an experience within itself.  As you walk around the marina, you are attacked by restaurant salesmen armed with menus and beautiful platters of raw meats trying to convince you that you need to eat at their place.  Once you choose to dine at their place, you are welcomed with applause and cheers.  What a life!

We found out that presentation is very important.

I also found that Coca Cola Light in Mexico is not the same as Diet Coke.

Joel found that Quesadillas in Mexico are not the same as they are here.

Tortilla soup is pretty good…..even if it’s windy.

Mom and Dad enjoyed a love song in honor of their anniversary.  Dad even joined in on the song and paid the tip when they were done.

Fajitas in Mexico aren’t as good as TaMolley’s here!

Mmmmmm!  We enjoyed eating at Ruth’s Chris Steak House.  It was my favorite place to eat while in Cabo.

Look at the size of those shrimp! cabo 2011 035

They brought out wraps and heaters for us!  June was chilly there in June!  cabo 2011 037 cabo 2011 038 cabo 2011 076 cabo 2011 077

Before we flew out, Joel and I had breakfast at the hotel.  We enjoyed pancakes and omelets.  Mmmmm. 

Time sure goes by quickly when you are having fun!  Our time in Cabo didn’t break that rule!

Cabo 2011

 cabo 2011 014

Joel and I enjoyed a vacation to Cabo recently with Tim and June and Joel’s parents.  Joel and Tim earned the trip from work.   Although I was reluctant to leave Zach here and leave the country, I thoroughly enjoyed my time away.

Joel and Tim checking in to the hotel.  We thought they were having to listen to a time share talk…..we had a good laugh watching their heads bobble.

When we got there our rooms were not clean so we had to wait…….cabo 2011 006      

And look down from the walkway…

I love these plants…..

Since we were without a room, June and I were waiting by the elevator! Well,….this guy in black shorts and black boots and his buddy (who always had a little too much to drink) offered to go let the hotel know that they were not happy about us waiting on our rooms.  Joel and Tim heard their conversation….and came around the corner to save the day.  (I took this picture later in the lobby to remember our black boot friend.)

Finally, we got our rooms.  They were wonderful!  The resort just opened in February so everything was perfect and so relaxing.

And the view and the sounds of the waves pounding the shore were to die for!!!

We had such a good time looking down from our balcony on this view.  The pool was not ever very busy while we were there.  What a relaxing time! 

I’ll try to post more later about some of the good times we had while there.

Sour Chang-er Recipe

by:  Zach


3 cups flour

2 eggs

4 M&M’s

1 piece of cake

Stir it up.  Throw the egg up in the air, and give it to the cooking lady---Mom.  Pour the flour in the bowl.  Put M&M’s and cake in bowl.  Put it in the oven.  This makes a nice summer snack…(Zach’s silly laugh)
