With a week to spare before starting his new job in Seattle, Sean decided we should make the trip to Puerto Vallarta to see dad, Barry and wife Laura. We knew they would love to see Sophie as well as it had been October since they have seen her.
So off we flew for a week in the sun with some relaxing by the pool and walks along the Malecon.
*Warning* This is where I go into picture overload.
Sophie was entertaining herself on the plane with the ipod touch. We have at least a dozen pictures all very similar to this one.
Sophie was ready for some time in the sun.
We didn’t waste any time the morning we arrived before getting on our swimsuits and hitting the pool at their house. Sophie was hesitant at first but eventually gave into some rides on her new penguin.
Sophie managed to sit still long enough for a little family picture. Can you believe that view. I think I could wake up every morning with my cup of coffee and look out over the water.
We decided to head to the waterfront for a little walk in the afternoon. Sophie go to sit in a little car and be pushed around. She was in heaven.
During lunch Sophie got a chance to play in the sand with her new sand toys. I have decided that we should have a sandbox next to the dinner table everywhere we go because she was so distracted the whole time just playing in the sand. It was great.
Through out the week Sophie definitely warmed up to the pool. Nana and Grandad got into the fun as well.
Now that Sophie was enjoying pools more we had a chance to spend a few hours at the Sheraton having a yummy breakfast, listening to mariachi music and time in the pool. Sophie enjoyed it all. So much so that she needed to take a bit of a nap pool side.
We finished out our week with time in the ocean where we discovered that Sophie absolutely loves when the waves crash on the beach. Although you can’t see her face here trust me when I say that she was so excited she was trying to get closer to the water.
Relaxing on our last morning there.
We had a really great week and look forward to future trips to see Nana and Grandad in Mexico.
