We spent the morning in town in Puerto Vallarta, on the boardwalk, the tourist area.
 Penguins were everywhere, diving for fish.

Fish tacos and Margaritas on the beach before we headed back.

These performers were working in the bright morning sunshine.

this child's third birthday

Yes we're gone, but that's okay. There was a celebration at this house in Minneapolis today.  Happy Birthday, You.

In the whole world, there has never been another you.

I hope being three is just absolutely fantastic, and we all love you so incredibly much.

Happy Birthday, love Grandma and Grandpa and Everybody.

vacation dinner

 Sometimes the walkways get to be a bit of a maze.  We did find the restaurant eventually.  It was fine.

And then we made our way back to our fancy room again where ice cream was eaten by a few people and everyone seemed pretty tired out.

It was a great day.

Love, Val

vacation, day 3

Jay's friend, Kim, loves these fishing trips, and Jay's always game since the two of them are together along with Kim's son.  They had a pretty great time.  There's a restaurant in the resort that will cook the fish guests catch, so we dropped off the fish late in the afternoon and returned for a lovely dinner on the beach.

Jay took this picture heading out in the bay, early in the morning.

 Jay said there were whales all over.  If you click on the picture, it will enlarge, and then can be enlarged further. There's the tiny tail of a disappearing whale between the cords.

 Click if you find whale sightings fun.
It was a great morning.

Love, Val
