As my kids have gotten older, I'm feeling more confident taking the whole family overseas at one time. This time we opted for a bit more 'traditional' vacation with a relaxing stay in Puerto Vallarta to recharge in the midst of an exhausting winter back home. We made the most of our week with lots of activities- ziplining, whale watching, swimming with dolphins, golf, etc. However I also tried to consciously take things a bit slower than I usually do on vacation with time built in for leisurely dinners and relaxing on the beach. As it turns out, this time was some of the best of the trip. I could get used to this slower pace...well, at least for a bit!
