After the reception, Adam and I drove off into the sunset to live happily ever after. I am sad to say, that I didn't get any pictures until we were at the airport, so you will just have to take my word on the beginning... Our first night as a married couple, we stayed at The Anniversary Inn in the Jungle room. it was AWESOME. small. very small, but awesome all the same. Funny story. We had been married... 12 hours? maybe? when we got to Anniversary Inn and were checking in, I was in my dress. he was in his tux. we're all happy that we had just gotten married. everyone can tell that we just got married. it's very obvious. As Adam is signing us in he turns to the guy behind the desk. he is completely serious when he asks "what's the date" the guy behind the desk looks at him, then me and says "you can slap him now" hahaha it was SO funny. it's our wedding day. not even our anniversary. the actual day, and he's already asking for the date. it was pretty funny :D
the next day around noon, we started the drive to Las Vegas where we would spend one night. I am pretty proud of myself. I found an excellent deal. I got the hotel for $10 a night. it was a nice hotel too. 2 queen sized beds, microwave, fridge, internet, free shuttle to and from the airport, they let us keep our car there the whole time we were gone. it was awesome.
The next morning we were off to the airport. We are so beyond lucky and blessed to have such fabulous grandparents. Adams grandparents sent us to Cabo for our honeymoon. They told us we could go anywhere we wanted for our honeymoon using their time share. ANYWHERE. there were lots of places we could have gone within the states, but we live here. this was a once in a life time chance. Adam had never even been out of the country, so together we chose to go to Cabo. We do not feel that we can thank them enough. We had such a fabulous time. EVERYTHING was perfect and we owe it all to them. so thank you SO so so so much Grandpa Ute and Grandma Gail!! We love you!!
This is us on the plane to cabo!! wahoo!!
To enhance the experience, Pueblo Bonito (where we stayed) has these african birds all over. chirping and singing to make it feel even more like a tropical
We ordered room service a few times. they were very detail oriented. they came in and set everything up, then picked up everything and showed us what it was "dis, is ketchup, dis, is mustard, dis is your hamburger..." etc... it was pretty cool
We had an awesome view of the ocean from our room, but, it's the pacific ocean an was too dangerous to play in. so just about every day we would take the free shuttle they provided to the "safe beach" at the sea of cortez. this is us on the shuttle, on our way to the beach
Adam likes this one :) the "road" i'm walking on is the path that goes around the whole resort. it was HUGE. they had golf cart type cars driving around to take you to the lobby, your room or the pool whenever you needed. it was cool.
the waves on the beach by our place were gigantic. i think at least 1/4 of the pictures that i took were of the waves. we went on a walk every night at sunset and would just watch the waves. i couldn't believe how big they were. seeing the huge waves made it obvious why it wasn't a safe beach. If you got caught in a wave, you wouldn't be able to come back!
He was like a little kid. I loved it. he ran along the waves and tried not to get caught. love him love him love him.
We went the famous Cabo Wabo restaurant. The food was good, a little expensive, but it was our honeymoon and it was fun ;)
SO dangerous. we rented a scooter for a few hours while in cabo. we got to go out and go shopping, out to eat and see more of cabo. i was nervous the entire time, but it was still fun. everyone yielded to the scooter. they would stop at corners when we had the stop and they didn't. it was a little reassuring knowing they were looking out for us a little.
This is us waiting for the shuttle to come pick us up to take us to the airport. Sad, sad day. We miss it.
the trip was sooooo much fun and we were so sad to leave. we stil miss it and wish we could go back. on the way back, we had a layover in pheonix. when we got to the gate to go to our final destination Las Vegas, they said they had overbooked our flight and were asking for volunteers to take a flight the next morning. we had nothing else to do so we volunteered. that got us a free night at this hotel (it looked like ikea decorated it. so awesome), $10 food voucher each at the airport, and we each got a free round trip ticket anywhere in the contigous US. we have lots of places we would like to go with these tickets. Overall, it was a better honeymoon than we could have asked for. Thanks to everyone that helped make it possible, and a special thanks, again, to Grandma and Grandpa. You guys are awesome.
