Punta de Mita, Mexico

Becca: Hey Olly, what’s a blog?

Olly: It’s like a big grey cloud that’s really soft and can change shapes.

Really? Any other guesses?

       A piece of jello that’s shaped like a flower? But, it’s brown… or black.

Fascinating. What is that?

       I don’t know.

Ok, want to hear what a blog is? It’s a diary that we put on the internet where our friends and family can see it. It’s funny—sometimes people do call the internet a “cloud”. Should we blog about our trip to Mexico in February to celebrate Bappa’s birthday?

       What are we talking about again?

Should we blog about our trip to Mexico?

       Yes. Yes.

How about we choose some photographs together. What would you like to include from our trip?

       Swimming, backflips, going on the jetski, eating red snapper, collecting rocks and shells, the boat ride to the island, seeing whales, smores, the pinata!, eating candy, playing in the waves, fish tacos, and… oh yeah, hermit crabs.  

Will you help me write about the photographs?

       Of course I will.
