My mom, dad and sis were here for the last week… while it rained a few of the days they were here (the first rain we’ve seen since before Christmas!), we still managed to have an awesome time with them.
Taking Jess for a quick spin in the dinghy ~ me yelling "hold on!!" while she yelps "faster! faster!"
We spent an inordinate amount of time enjoying the luxuries of Casa Kruger -- laundry, hot showers, pressurized water, king size beds, and suede lounge chairs 🙂
Jess made lots of little friends everywhere she went
We found a favourite lunch spot ~ Huanacaxtle Cafe
Mom & Dad enjoying Huanacaxtle Cafe ("Wah-na-kax-lee Cafe")
Jess attempted some Linguistics homework (assisted by a Pina Colada or two)
Jess & Jon discovered they both have soft spots for homeless cats
While Dad and Jon solved all of Brio's issues (here planning the wiring for the Tri Colour light)
Jess and I shopped (matching hair flowers care-of-Mama)
And we dined (Valentine's Day Lunch)
And we took pictures of my uber-awesome dad, up the very very top of the mast, braving rain and waves and a little wind storm to install our Tri-Colour for us (finishing the job I attempted to start back in Mazatlan)
We had Kist & Camanoe over for a delicious dinner of Whisky Shrimp Soup & bbq'd shrimp skewers... and had a supremely fun night playing Catchphrase 🙂
We also go to go sailing, with the whole familia!
Made a quick stop at Las Tres Marietas (was too rough to snorkel, so it was a sight-seeing trip only)
Got to tell our stories to a captive audience
Dragged my sis on a day sail (hiding from the sun here while she lounges in the cockpit)
Caught a couple quick shots of "Kist" as we flew past each other (big thanks to Bonnie for the picture of Brio under sail!!)
And tried to take a shot of the family with Brio in the background 🙂
We also made it to the Malecon of downtown Puerto Vallarta -- a good place to spend one of our cloudier days
...And just thoroughally enjoyed having my family here to visit ~ miss you guys already!
