Ahhh....vacation!

We just returned from a fantastic vacation in Mexico with Grandpa and Grandma Buman!
It was very warm so we did a lot of swimming!

Brodie got a lot of use out of his goggles. 




The boys swimming improved immensely over the 1 1/2 weeks we were there!
Isaac wouldn't hardly put his head under water at the beginning of the week and by the end, he was swimming across the small pool all by himself!  





We also had fun at the beach!

The first morning in Mexico, Isaac woke up early, so he and I headed down to the beach.  We had a little fun one on one time.




The boys had fun trying to build a sand trap to catch fish with Grandpa and Grandma.  Brodie caught one in his hands for a little bit. 



The boys loved the waves.  Brodie got really brave and good at swimming in the waves. 

Isaac loved chasing the birds

Ready to get those waves




Brodie and Grandpa ready for some waves

Grandpa and Grandma had a little work to do one morning, so we headed out to the beach.





We had some fun away from the water also.

The boys loved getting cotton candy ice cream!

Brodie lost a tooth in Mexico and the tooth fairy brought 20 pesos!

One of the many games of soccer that were played


An intense game of slap jack


 The boys loved riding on the 4-wheelers!




Isaac is ready to ride again!


Ready to ride!
 I think the boys had more fun with Grandpa and Dad than with me



More soccer while we were grilling


We went searching for sea shells one day and had lots of luck!




Isaac found a sand dollar

More soccer...this time on the beach

The gadgets the boys bought
 Someone may have turned 40 when we were in Mexico also!  It was a fabulous day.  It would have only been better with a few more family members present!







We played hard and also slept hard!





We had a great 4th of July also!
