After the long but mild winter, we were so excited for some spring break in Mexico. It was also a nice way to continue Charlotte’s 3rd birthday celebration with an authentic piñata and lots of mermaid time! We thoroughly enjoyed the long sunny days with lots of beach and pool time. I would love to call it relaxing but I think we’re still a few more years away from that with these two lively kids.
Johnny (a.k.a. Juancito) finally earned his beach card at seven months old while ingesting handfuls of sand – such a proud mama. Charlotte and Johnny had a few moments of play time together in the pool and we had our first glimpse of what I would call “siblinghood”. We also had such a great time swimming with dolphins again. A very confident, newly three year old Charlotte rode a dolphin all by herself. I wasn’t kidding when I said mermaid time was the perfect way to celebrate Charlotte.
What I would like to remember most about these kind of vacations is the solid seven days family time. It makes all the hard work worth it and creates a special bond between the four of us that gets us through the regular days of life. Thanks, Mexico, for another great time! Hope to see you soon.
