Back in February, our little fam went south of the border to Mexico with the Two Talls and Two Tall's bro and wife. It was a cliche springbreak choice and we were totally happy about that. Anyway, here are a few pictures of the trip, all pretty much just of us because lets face it, who cares about scenery when you can look at the Malfattos instead.
Lola's first swimming lessons. She nailed the butterfly.
Beaching and eating. This pretty much sums up the trip.
Just feeding my baby while walking along the beach.
The diving down there was surprisingly pretty incredible. We even managed to make it work so that Lola could come while we all dove without having to leave her alone with Big Panda, our sea captain.
While we were going from the first dive site to the second, we spotted some dolphins. Big Panda turned the boat around and positioned us right in their path. We all jumped in the ocean and swam as hard as we could towards them. There were two at the top and about 15 swimming below along the bottom of the ocean. One of them came right up to us and John even touched it. And then John tried to race the dolphin. I'll tell you what, and I don't say this very often publicly, but my man was looking pretty good swimming among those animals. Here is Big Panda taking us to the dolphins. Andale Big Panda!
Lola on the other hand, was not impressed. She was like, 'dolphins? who cares. I need a tan.'
It use to really bother me that John preferred the shade to the sun. Now that we have an extremely fare-skinned kid (thanks me!) who will probably get burned going from the house to the car during the summer, I love this quality about John. I can get my rays, and he gets the shade and takes care of our girl. A real compromise.
Lo's first time in the ocean.
I think you'd be hard pressed to find a guy who is as crazy about his little baby girl as John. It is probably the sweetest thing. Now. But I have a feeling it's going to be major trouble in later years..
Lola hasn't stopped talking about sombraros or drinking horchata since we've been back. Looks like we'll need to plan another trip down there, huh John?
