We're here!!!

Oh my gosh, what an adventure we are on! It has been such a long day and quite eventful! We landed in Los Cabos around 5:15pm (4:15 cali time) and decided that we were going to get a rental car. Yes, we have NO clue where we are going but we decided that it would be cheaper and easier than getting taxis everywhere. We rented from National and got a new 2008 Honda. Seriously, it looks like it's a 1993. I have to take a picture of it tomorrow and show y'all our ride! It's awesome! We decided that we were going to go to the grocery store to stock up on food. (breakfast and lunch items). It's really hard to know what is ok and what is not ok for us so I decided to go with the names that were familiar. (dole, doritios, oscar meyer) We got some not so familiar named things too. Praying that they're yummy! It was so exciting to see how cheap things are!! Our total came to $588.00 pesos but really it was only $45 in dollars! Whew! So- here is the adventure part. I was trying to scram at the grocery store because I knew it was going to get dark soon. We were trying so hard to dig up that spanish we learned years ago...I need to dig a little deeper! Once we FINALLY got checked out and being stalked by a guy we got in our race car, busted open the doritios because we are starving! and tried to remember what road and direction the car rental guy told us to take. It's dark by the way. So we're driving along like maniacs and I'm praying the whole time. Chris took a wrong turn and we ended up going down a road that seriously we couldn't see the end to. There was nothing in sight but a policia. I've had a run in with them before and it's not fun! We quickly made a fast u-turn (im praying really loud) and Chris is laughing at me. We finally got on a road that sounded right pointing to Cabo San Lucas. After about a 15 minute drive we found our resort. Jesus seriously directed us here because it's completely dark and not many lights. As soon as we stepped onto the resort we were at peace. It was safe and there were Americans who speak our language!! The only thing I wanted while we were driving was an american cd. Theres a cd player in our pimped out car but who has cds anymore? Ok, so our resort is out of this world!!! We are right on the beach. Our condo is absolutely gorgeous! GORGEOUS! We have a huge master suite and a little kitchen with a huge bathroom, another full on beautiful kitchen, a really big family room and dining room and another bathroom along with a really big porch that overlooks the ocean. We so wish we could share this with our family. We totally could have all fit in this house! I will be sure to take pictures tomorrow and show you what I'm talking about.
I am so thankful we have a kitchen full of food. We're starving so we're going to go make some dinner (after Chris is done smoking his cigar). Dad, he wishes you were here to be his buddy.
That's it for now. We're here, we're safe and so excited!
Until tomorrow...
PS. Sorry if there are a lot of misspellings. The spell check doesn't work here. Everything is in spanish!
We love you.
