Sirena’s first international trip: Zihuatanejo, Mexico!
January 10th, 2013
To celebrate my good friend Alison’s 30th birthday we tagged along with her family and friends to Zihuatanejo, Mexico for a week-long trip over New Year’s. What an incredible experience, we are so happy we decided to go!
Early morning at LAX, anxiously awaiting Sirena’s first flight ever!
We made it! Sirena did GREAT on the flight.
Patiently waiting in line at customs
Sleepy, sweaty baby on the car ride to the hotel
Sirena wanted a sip of my mango margarita
First time in the sand!
First taxi ride (notice no car seat?!)
Early morning on the dock, waiting for our boat to go snorkeling
Sirena the sailor. She LOVED the boat ride, not so much the oversized life vest, though…
Alison and Laura
On Playa las Gatas, accessible via boat
One of the many naps taken on the beach
The most beautiful pina coladas I’ve ever seen!
Our hotel, Quinta Camelinas
The house neighboring the hotel had a dog that would keep watch from the rooftop, so funny

We were so amazed by how many Mexican women would approach us and ask to hold Sirena…the one that blew us away the most was this waitress at Bandido’s who held Sirena for 15 minutes while we ate dinner! She took her around the whole restaurant showing her off to the manager, the bartender, and the street vendors. This was by far one of my favorite memories of the trip!
