About a week after Ariela was born we were finally done running around Puerto Vallarta getting her papers in order. I was sooo ready to get to the beach! It was a gray, cloudy day and the whole family ventured down the hill to a little beach tucked away in the bay. Ariela and I relaxed under a big umbrella, while the kids worked on their paddling and found some treasures. It was perfect… I just wished I could get in the water! Still, little adventures like these help my body and mind recover after giving birth.
