Grand Mayan with the Fam..

Summer Vacation!!!

Just some pics from my vacation with my family (but Tristan wasn’t there) to Nuevo Vallarta… Vaness was able to come along for a time of relaxation and bit of getting’ to kno’ ya’…

I actually didn’t realize I was gonna take so many pictures, but I suppose while teaching my dad a few subtleties of the trade – I couldn’t seriously not shoot a couple shots myself! Enjoy! Well at least I hope you enjoy – hey it’s way better than me forcing you to sit through a 2 hour slideshow... Here are a few shots from our little tour of Puerto Vallarta…



Tequila!!!


So what did we do while we were there?? Well – Short story even shorter – we ate… and went to the lazy river... then we ate… and then we lounged around the balcony… Here are a few from a beauty of a restaurant that we at at, Vista Grill (the group shot of us above was at this restaurant) and a little ‘taste’ of the yummy food/ambiance…




And some more food from a local spot!

Here are a few from the festival we enjoyed right on the beach at the Grand Mayan.


Speaking of the GRAND Mayan – Here is the lobby entrance… My head reaches the ankle of that statue!!!

No vacation with dad would be complete without his legendary/notorious/infamous Cube. But, admittedly good conversation with the family and Vaness was sparked! The starter of good times, haha, who woulda thought…

And for the grand finale – check out these beauties.. I probably can say with confidence that I had never seen what I had seen in this pictures until that day.. The bolts where so huge, so strong, I swear they probably would have hit us… There was one that I didn’t catch on camera that probably hit about 100 yards of the beach in front of the resort.. Here is one striking the water in the distance!!! Crazy!!!

And here is one crawling across the sky!! Vaness was soooo scared!! Okay okay, I was kinda jumpin and running like a little baby too – but if you have ever experienced what we did – you would have too.. believe me. I seriously still can’t believe we saw this… And there were more that I didn’t even catch a shot of!

Thanks mom and dad for the great vacation! You both are rockstars.
