I am still learning how to have a message and a slide show in the same post... so sorry that there are 2 different posts for the same vacation! Not quite a professional blogger yet :)

Oh where to begin.... we had such a great time in Mexico and California. It was just what the doctor ordered for ALL OF US! The weather was amazing... my grandparents beach house was amazing... the entire trip was just amazing! Savanna LOVED the water and loved waking up to the beach every morning. She was such a trooper and slept great. I actually went to bed with her every night (and that was for my benefit, not hers) and took a nap with her every day. The sleep was much needed! We played hard and enjoyed the time together. We ended up leaving 1 day early and went into San Diego to spend a day. It was nice to get back to the clean US of A and spend time there too. My parents spoiled us all rotten and I am so thankful to them. Thanks to my wonderful Grandpa and Grandma Kimball for letting us use their house in Mexico... it was so nice. It is right outside of Ensanada and Rosarito... only 40 minutes past the border! They have this HUGE main house with the kitchen and living area and the master, then this cute little quaint courtyard that leads to the guest house. My little family stayed over there and it was so perfect. This was our first "vacation" since our cruise in 2005... let me tell ya, we needed this! Hope you enjoy all the fun pictures I took :) By the way, I chose the La Bamba song because it was Savannas favorite when the little bands would come around and sing to us!

Josh and I also celebrated our 4 year anniversary in Mexico... I could not have asked for a better way to spend it. Honey, I hope you know how much I love and appreciate you. We have had a many years together and I love each memory we have shared. Clear back to when I first saw you... it was 15 years ago... and you were the most handsome "boy" I had ever seen! And then our first kiss on August 24 1996... pretty pathetic that I have the exact date :) I love you baby and I look forward to many many more years together!

We are not dead!

I have gotten so many calls and emails asking where I am, what is going on and if the Mitchell family is still alive! Yes... we are indeed alive, I have just been in bed for the past 3 weeks sick sick sick. I swear, we are done having kids. I am not a very good pregnant person and it just doesn't seem to sit well with me. My poor daughter has been let free to "RULE" the house and I am paying for it daily. Her newest naughty trick is emptying her dresser and closet full of clothes. No doubt, I have put her clothes back away 3 times in the last week. I keep closing her door but hen I forget after I change her diaper. All I have to do is go down stairs and she is at it again. I can't get too mad at her because she is just starving for some fun and attention... which I have not been able to give her. Good news is, I have started to feel better the last few days. At least I am up and around and socializing with PEOPLE! We are headed to Mexico soon and I really want to have a good time so I am determined to get over this whole sickness thing :) Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know we are here, alive, and hopefully there will be some fun pictures to post in the next few weeks!
