Day 3 - We Get Our Mexico Villa!

View from Master Bedroom Balcony towards the West.

View from 1st Floor Patio. There is an endless pool straight ahead. The kids spent 30 minutes in that tree today.

Our place is FABULOUS. We are in a gated community with a couple guards patrolling the area along the villas and the beach. There are 3, 4 and 5 bedroom split level Villas. We have a 3 bedroom with 2 car garage. There is an open kitchen, living and dining that all overlook the view of the ocean since our whole back "wall" has sliding glass doors.

How did I get this life? I am so fortunate.

wow, what a luxurious place.Looks like a golf course. Too bad you have to live with guards. Your Mexican life looks way different than my Mexican life,I'm guessing your American life did too.

Your place looks beautiful. I'm going to follow your blog faithfully. I'm anxious to read what the boys think of school. We will be thinking of you! Our five week kitchen remodel is now in week 10. For the first time in my life, I have the urge to cook. I've even been saving recipes. I'm sure it won't last once I've burned a few things and cleaned a few messes.

Your are there! I am so glad you made it safely. It is breathtaking. Now it is time to enjoy what you have planned for all of these months. What sacrifices and efforts you and Tom have made to enhance the lives of your boys. I admire both of you. I can't wait to hear more and see more pictures. I love you!

Wow, pretty fancy. I think it will be wonderful to have the beach and pool and all that so close this summer.

Paul and I chose to live in Centro (in Mazatlan) where we can walk to everything and where we really need to speak Spanish. We can get to the beach in five minutes walking - but it is the beach for everyone so it can be crowded and crazy or subdued and quiet, depending. But for me, I love the change from my life up North with shared walls, loud music and laughter and what I consider the perfect Mexican house with thick walls and a central courtyard.

I'll be interested to see how the kids like school, and I imagine they'll make friends in the neighborhood. Have you met your neighbors yet?

Have fun!
