Vacation #3 (pictures again)

Alright this is going to be the final vacation post I promise! Actually, that is a lie because I brought along a camera with film and if those pictures are great I am going to want to post them…whoops! But here are a few more pictures since it’s 30 degrees out and I miss the sunshine…

Vacation #2 (pictures)

So, I didn’t get to this yesterday like I said I would, but finally here are some of the pictures from our vacation (there are so many!).  We really couldn’t have had a better time.  Between all of the restaurants, the perfect hotel grounds, our amazing suite, private pool area, spa, white sand, and unbelievably aqua water, we were in heaven…despite the cancellation of our flight, hours on the phone, the frustration that goes with cancelled plans, and a bit of a travelers bug it all worked out in the end and is a vacation we will both look back on with love…

I think that is enough for now!  I will most likely not be able to stop myself and post 80 more at some point.

Tonight I go pick up Rondo and spend the weekend with my family for my brother’s birthday (my brother who is totally kicking butt right now with his phd program acceptance rate). Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Vacation #1 (video)

We are back!  Vacation couldn’t have been better!  We relaxed, ate a weird amount of food, drank an even weirder amount of frozen drinks, and enjoyed being in the sun with just each other for 12 days.  Yea, that’s right, 12!  Nemo (evil fishy storm) had all flights cancelled, so we ended up with 4 extra days in paradise (this is after 8 hours of phone calls with the airline, hotel, and travel company).

I took 400 pictures, not like 400, actually 400.  I am going to sift through them tonight and post some of our favorites.  In the meantime here are a few from my iphone and at the bottom a video I made (it’s my first try at making one!)…

(don’t worry, we are smoking vanilla cigars from a cigar making thing we went to…nothing naughty ha)

Now back to 3901804 emails and snow.

(M&D&N – thank you for taking care of our little babe.  i know he is going to be sad to leave you and we couldn’t be more appreciative of you loving/taking care of him the extra days)

A little update…

Just a little update from paradise…

We’re having a wonderful time, enjoying the warm weather, beach, food, drinks, pools…well, everything! I’m not sure we will ever come back to cold NYC.

Some iPhone pics. Real ones and a video to come next week!
