Everyone has heard of a honeymoon.  But did you know there is another excuse to get your husband to take you on a tropical vacation?  Having a baby calls for one last 'hoorah' before freedom no longer reigns.  So, we thought we'd tackle our bucket list and go to none other than Zihuatanejo.  They say it has no memory (and that it was made popular by the movie Shawshank Redemption).

Acapulco is famous for cliff divers.  Here they are climbing up the cliff, getting ready for an impressive dive below.  It is really a sight.

 Relaxing by the pool.  Who says you can't wear a bikini while you're pregnant?  No memory, remember?

Playing around in the room.

 The resort had activities such as bowl painting.  Why not?  I'm childless!

The sunsets were magnificent. 

It was encouraging to see lots of people at the resort with small children.  It helped me know that vacations (and all freedom) doesn't have to come to a complete halt after you have kids.  I am looking forward to watching them play in the pool and marvel at the sunsets.
