(Playa Mita Iberostar Resort, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico)
On the third day in Mexico my vacation gave to me, three Evans ladies!
Rain came today, dashing our hopes of yet a third consecutive pool day. Not to worry, much can still be accomplished in a place like this. Like Uncle Greg and Dax finding all sorts of entertainment from a simple roof eavsetrough. It was hard to tell who was having more fun – the trickster “adult” coaxing the toddler under the overflowing rain gutter, or the young, impressionable child happily soaking himself head to toe. Regardless it was smiles and giggles all around.
With the pool off the table a big group of us headed into the nearby surf town Sayulita to check out its offerings. Things found; surf, Mexican handicrafts, and cervezas. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
Once back at the resort we had a family dinner to get to. A Japanese/earlyChristmascausewewon’tgettoseeyou/here’syourweddingpresent kind of family dinner. The Japanese part of dinner was impressive and entertaining as we watched the Teppanyaki chef chop, flame, and flip our meals onto our plates. When it came time for Greg and I to give out our Christmas gifts we were just as excited as the receivers. I’d love to show a picture or explain what we gave our favourite Evans’, but our gift-crafting imagination and skill sets only go so far and we will be giving the Foy’s the very same things! So let’s just wait. I will say, Greg’s wedding present to Stephen and Nicole is the most beautiful wind chime I have ever seen. All materials compliments of Santa Catalina beach!
