Paradise? Or Parenting Mistake?For the first time since my son was born, my family of four is headed out to a real family vacation. No work, no obligations, just time for some major relaxation. An especially memorable pre-kids vacation spot called our names again, so the hubs and I decided on a trip to Mexico to just chill for a few days. But suddenly, I'm not so relaxed about our chosen spot as an article in the LA Times highlights Mexico's drug war and tourism.
Oops. Did I just do one of those things that people do then they wind up in the news, and everyone says, "If only they hadn't taken the kids to the top of the volcano/to the front row of the drag race/to a war zone."
I don't think so, but that doesn't mean I won't lose some sleep over it as we pack our bags. Not enough to stop us from going, mind you, but some. Here's why it's still a great idea to go south of the border. Yes, it involves margaritas.
Would you take your family to Mexico on vacation?
