Christmas in Mexico 2015

Ah, Christmas in May!  That’s what happens when I’m 4 months behind on our blog.  But better late than not at all.

This year we headed to our favorite spot in Mexico (Punta de Mita) again to get warm and avoid the hype and chaos of Christmas 2015.  We all (well at least John and I) agree that having this be our present is the best way to celebrate.  We love warm afternoons at the beach while the kids get sand in every crevasse.  With two children under three, the serenity is balanced with sleepy meltdowns, dawn wake ups, and food fits.  We keep telling ourselves we’re “so close” to being able to go out to dinner and not have to look at the waiter and say “so sorry for the mess”.

So, here’s to seven days of sun, sand, chips and salsa, and ocean with our sweet family of four.

A few things worth noting, this was the first trip where Johnny was walking.  He felt like a million bucks strolling around the beach with a shovel in hand.  This also helped develop Charlotte’s relationship with him.  Progress between the two of them continues to be slow but steady.  I tried several times to get the perfect cuddly picture of Charlotte and Johnny together, but eventually gave up on that idea.  I hope to look back at these pictures in a few years and remember the good, the bad, and the in-between.  The days are long, but yet it’s going by so fast.
