Los Cabos, Mexico

















I wish I had all the time in the world to write the most detailed blog post about our trip to Cabo right now, but to be honest, I have two boys who are still awake (it’s 10PM on a school night) and just keeping it real… the pictures tell the story. BUT I’ll say a few words anyway ;)

It was a glorious week in paradise with our family!  The boys enjoyed being transferred from the pool to the beach, then back to the pool again just to want to go back to the beach once more.  This was pretty much the daily routine :) We did rent a car one of the days and drove into San Jose del Cabo where we walked around the cute historic district filled with restaurants and shops.  Every morning when we would wake up, Husband & I would make our coffee and we would sit out on the balcony and watch the whales.  One morning there were at least 15-20 whales way out in the distance blowing their air holes and breaching.  It was absolutely amazing!  Seriously made my day every morning.  On Thursday we chartered a sailboat out of Cabo San Lucas where we enjoyed some light snorkeling (my brother in law says he saw a white tipped reef shark- no… just, no.), did some more whale watching (this time it was much more up close and personal), saw a huge pod of dolphins, and then sailed the Sea of Cortez/ Pacific Ocean.

We ate so many tacos, quesadillas, skirt steak, chips and guac, and ceviche- I swear I gained 10 lbs in a week.  Not to mention all the margaritas that were heavily flowing ;)

It was a beautiful vacation, much needed for this hard working husband of mine.  I’m so thankful for my in laws and their generosity and for inviting us to tag along with our energetic, slightly bi-polar boys!  We love y’all!

P.S. take note of the incredible sunsets!!

To say that we had a great time on our honeymoon would be an understatement.  Cabo is probably one of our favorite places ever, and we were so lucky that husband’s parents treated us to this amazing vacation after our wedding.  It was so nice to just relax and be together with no worries.  The food was great, the drinks were strong (not complaining), the sun was shining on the water making it look like glitter, and love was in the air for The Dietrich’s!

Husband snuck this shot when I wasn’t looking… we stayed at the Grand Regina for a whole week! This resort was stunning to say the least.

He’s cute :)

Parasailing was an adventure! I slightly pee’d my bathing suit while at the peak height because I seriously thought a bird would fly right through our parachute and we would come plummeting into the ocean. But other than that small fright, it was wonderful to see all of Cabo from such great heights.

The One & Only Palmilla Is absolutely gorgeous! Although we didn’t stay at this resort, it was highly recommended to us for a nice dinner.  The food & blue margaritas were delicious and the scenery was incredible. It was really cute all the details they put into the dining experience to make your honeymoon so special even if you aren’t a guest staying in their hotel.

We can’t wait to go back!


Pretty much right after our trip to San Francisco we hopped on a plane and headed down to Cabo! Husband’s parents have a timeshare down there and invited us to join, which is always such a treat.  I wasn’t great about taking pictures on this trip, but as you can see from what I do have, all we did was drink, swim, and layout. It was fabulous!
