    What looked like just another Kim Kardashian bikini parade was actually taking place in the middle of a family getaway.

    The E! star has been staying at pal Joe Francis' beachside villa in Punta Mita for nearly two weeks now, and husband Kanye West and their daughter, North West, have been with her the entire time!

    But while his wife has been logging quality pool time, this has been largely a working vacation for Kanye, who's recording new music with his production team near Puerto Vallarta.

    "His whole crew is out there recording," a source exclusively tells E! News. "His whole music studio was shipped out. It's been amazing."

    Sounds amazing—and adorable. We're told that Kanye has had North in the studio with him half the time, the 1-year-old being one of her hip-hop superstar daddy's biggest fans.

    "She loves music and is obsessed with hearing it in the studio," our source says.

    And surely that mutual admiration society runs both ways and that North is serving as unparalleled inspiration.

    Kim and Kanye, who's on a break from his Yeezus Tour until August, plan to be in Punta Mita for at least a few more days. The newlywedded rapper was also just announced as a headliner for the Budweiser Presents: Made In America Festival in both Philadephia (Aug. 30) and Los Angeles (Aug. 31).

    Meanwhile, Kim has been soaking up sun and sharing selfies, her latest being a couple of bird's-eye full-length shots of her impressive and now very tan bikini bod taken while lounging poolside.

    "It's a little blurry but you know what it is...," she captioned one that she took herself before apparently enlisting the help of a friend for the "#NoFlexZone" follow-up.
