Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Last week we had the opportunity to go to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a few days. Kerry received the trip through work and it was most likely the best vacation we have ever been on. The trip was an all-inclusive and we didn't have to spend a dime on anything if we didn't want to!

Everyone was so nice friendly every where we went! As soon as we arrived in Puerto Vallarta we were greeted at the airport with drinks and a chartered bus ready to take us to the resort. We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel and it was so nice. As soon as we walked in there were people greeting us with food and cocktails. The entire trip felt like a non-stop party, but so much fun. There were activities every night that you could do or you had the choice to go and do things on your on if you wanted. Even though this trip was technically for work it was meant to be enjoyed and there were no events that you were required to go to. Here are a few pictures from our trip...and the pictures don't begin to describe how nice it was and how much fun we had.

Costa Rica

We had the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica over the weekend (yes, only for the weekend). We went to celebrate the marriage of Bart and Stephanie who live in Costa Rica. We left the Friday after Thanksgiving and came home on Monday. It was a fun weekend, but definitely not long enough! We stayed at this beautiful resort. Here are a few pictures from our trip.

A glimpse of the resort, this picture doesn't do it justice!! It was beautiful!

Thanksgiving 2014

We had a great Thanksgiving! Carson and Walker had the whole week off of school which was nice since Kerry and I were leaving to go out of town at the end of the week. We got to spend time together going skating, shopping and visiting with Santa.
On Thursday we went to Sandersville to have Thanksgiving lunch with my side of the family. All of my brothers and sisters were together under one roof. Since there are 7 of us this is very rare. I love getting to see all the cousins together. We had a great lunch and the kids all got to play together for awhile. We headed back to Athens around 4 so that we could pack our bags and head to the airport early on Friday morning to go to Costa Rica for our friends wedding.
Here are a few pictures from our Thanksgiving.
