Regretfully, we are back





But at least we came back with tans!

I think the past 7 days have been the most relaxing I have had since before Adler. Beautiful weather the entire time- let me recap for you. This week, I...

Felt the sand between my toes
Heard the gentle rustling of the palms
Kayaked across the waters
Tasted the fresh pina coladas
Watched my son run wild through the waves
Breathed the fresh salty air
Walked the beach 5 billion miles

It was fabulous!

On top of that I got to spend a day at the spa with my mom in law and Aunt Daphne- we each had hour facials, hour massages, hour manicures, hour pedicures (complete with wine!) and a wash and dry. I have never been so pampered.

Adler had the best time he has ever had in his entire life (all 21 months of it!) at the big pool (as he calls the ocean). He ran and ran and ran and ran. All week. I wish my backyard was one big sandbox. We would get so much sleep at night.

As soon as I can dust off the million pounds of sand we brought home with us, I will find my camera and post some pics. Here are few though that my Aunt Daphne sent me- and yes, we were actually THERE! Beautiful, right?

Looks like y'all had a great time. We are going in early November this year to see how it is in the off-season. I don't even care about getting in the water as long as I can feel some sand between my toes.
