Prior to leaving the US, we had heard about Swine Flu hitting Mexico City. We weren't really bothered by it affecting us since we were headed to Sayulita, a small fishing village nowhere near the capital, and about 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta.
However, in the beginning of our stay the schools had to shut down:
The restaurants were open when we arrived, but later on in the week some were open for take-out only. Not like we would have eaten out at all, since August can last maximum 10 minutes in a restaurant before he starts to destroy the place. We ate LOADS of tacos, and they were incredible.
The 1st house we rented was huge! 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and tons of stairways and gorgeous ocean views. It was a little too big but we wanted to be next to our friends who were down there as well.

We swam every single day (especially August, who we could not get out of the pool at times) and ate some incredible food. And did lots of nothing, which is pretty much what we needed.
Lots of ice cream was consumed. You can tell August is eyeing Hunter's ice cream sandwich here because he inhaled his in less than 3 minutes:

Sunsets on the beach were fabulous:
