Earlier this month, Jeff and I had the pleasure of a week long vacation in this beautiful place.  To make things even better, we were invited by some of our best friends, Kristin and Neil, who moved to Tennessee right after our wedding so we don't see them as often as we'd like.

Our trip started out with a cancelled flight and a 6 hour stay in the DFW airport, followed by a pretty interesting stay at Days Inn with no luggage...but soon we were safe in Cabo and ready to relax!

This is before dinner on our first night. We look pretty relaxed after a day by the pool!

We went to dinner with the Pratts down on the Marina...after making it down the row of the salesmen trying to get us to dine in their restaurant, we ended up at a great little place with an awesome surf and turf special that caught everyone's eye (well, except me...)

Dinner at Ole Ole on the Marina

Did I mention the views from our beautiful resort?  When can we go back?

It was so great to spend time with one of my very best friends...we enjoyed catching up and found that we never ran out of things to talk about!  (The guys were happy with their books and ipods but we love to chat!)

We stayed in a great place that had a full kitchen, 3 bedrooms and a great outdoor sitting area and dining table so we enjoyed making food during the day and then going out for dinner downtown at night.  

This was at La Dolce, a cute little Italian place that Jeff and I found on our last trip to Cabo.  It was great!

Most of the time we laid by the pool and relaxed but a few days Jeff and I ventured out to see the town.  We really enjoyed our walk down around the marina and were amazed at all the beautiful sights that Cabo has to offer!

Later in the week, another couple joined us - Clint and Carla....they were friends of Kristin and Neil and we all hit it off and had a great time! 

The girls riding in the convertible Jeep...Jeff and Clint had to take turns riding in the very back which was a little scary considering some of the drivers in Mexico aren't the safest.  
Neil did a great job keeping us safe!

Best buds...

My favorite guy and an infinity pool with a breathtaking view...
life doesn't get any better!

One day we went to explore the beach and then 
 took a water taxi with Clint and Carla to see the famous arch

Took a little break and had a frozen drink...

And the guys smoked some cuban cigars that they picked up along the way! 

It was a great trip and a much needed break from the day-to-day grind of work and life in general.  It's nice to go away from the email and cell phones and get to sleep in and spend time with great friends.  It was like we re-charged our "batteries" and are ready to face the next half of 2010!

Thank you again to our friends for inviting us - we are so blessed to have you in our lives and we hope to see ya'll again soon.  

Can't wait to go back...

Much love,
Kasey & JJ
