kingston crew takes nuevo

a few days after christmas, we were lucky enough to escape the snow + fly down to nuevo vallarta, mexico for a week enjoying family, the pool + some yummy piƱa coladas. it was bliss. 

kingston turned seven months the day we left (seriously though, where has the time gone?!). on the flight to mexico, we ended up upgrading to westjet 'plus' seating which in our opinion, was the best money ever spent! the extra space for kingston to spread out, eat + just hang out was definitely a necessity. kingston was an angel the entire flight watching toy story + cars on his ipad + when he started getting antsy, we slipped him into my solly baby wrap + he was out like a light. the flight home needless to say, plus seating was sold out + it was all downhill from there, haha!

we decided to stay in a smaller all-inclusive this year to make it easier for kingston's naps + that way we didn't always have to take a cab to dinner (cabs are INSANE in mexico), so we ended up staying at the occidental grand in neuvo. even with all of our baby gear (it's officially impossible to pack light with a family of three), our room was super spacious. because this was a smaller resort, our room was nice + close to the pool which was perfect for kingston when he needed a place to cool off + recharge.

even though we stayed at an all-inclusive, we couldn't pass up the chance to sneak out to visit a few of our favourite restaurants in the nuevo/puerto vallarta area. our all-time favs are pipi's + la dolce vita (they seriously have the best pasta!!).

here are a few of our favourite snaps from our week in paradise:

    1. we actually brought both! the pool float folds up into a tiny reuseable package so it easily fit into our suitcase. the jolly jumper we brought along was 1 out of the 2 'baby gear' items that westjet allows you to take along for free!
