Amazing Vacation

I've been sitting here trying to think of the best way to blog about our vacation to Cabo. Do I write it all in one big blog post, break it up into a bunch of small posts, or not say anything at all. All I know is that I'm drawing a complete blank. So, I'm going to break it down into small day by day bullet points. I think you'll notice a pattern. There were 5 pools, so we tried to mix it up a bit!
