Family holidays in Canada.

We left Johannesburg a day late due to engine failure and arrived on Canada a day later. Early to rise the next day to get our flight to Mazatlan, Mexico. We have joined up with my Sister and her family in Toronto and are heading to the beaches of Mexico for some sun, fun and hopefully a little tequila.

On the flight over Cameron tried to teach Laird some Spanish so there are lots of Moochas Grasiaas's going on.

The resort in Mexico..... Yes resort! Is beautiful. It is one of those all inclusive packages that I gave only laughed at before but with a two year old and another that is not yet four I find it amazingly relaxing heading to a monster buffet breakfast with at least 100 different thongs to eat, them heading out to the kidded pool or the beach to dig in the sand or play in the surf.

I haw never been a package person always believing that we could do it better or cheaper ourselves but this has its perks.

We are at the Emerald Bay RIU hotel in Mazatlan.

The view from our room us magnificent.

We walked down the beach to a small local restaurant last night for dinner. Quiet an adventure for Laird and Fynn in the dark on the beach.

I was so proud of Laird when he got his juice to drink saying "Muchas Gracias"!!

I had Tequila Camarones (shrimp). Beautiful. Meg and Cher had Lobster Thermidor, as well as rest of our clan had mostly Langousine (lobster / crayfish) for about Mexican peso 1450. About $145. Great value for eight people.

The boys had a better nights sleep last night as they are getting over jet lag.

Well better recover from my own jetlag. More to follow later.
