I himmed and hawwed for about .000005 seconds before screaming, "Heck ya!"
An opportunity came up and the price was just too good to pass up. So, despite the fact we had already called on my mom to watch the kids for over a week earlier in the year while we were in Europe, I begged my mom to drop everything she was doing and come watch my kids again.
She agreed, as long as I made dinners for her to serve to the kids ahead of time, got rides for the kids as much as possible, and basically make it as easy as possible for her.
I himmed and hawwed for about .00000000003 seconds before agreeing to her terms and conditions.
This past Friday morning, we kissed the children and headed out the door before they even had their breakfast.
I'll let the photos do most of the talking.
(All photos (except one) taken with my phone and without a filter. I did nothing but crop them a bit.)
|There aren't any terminals in the Bahamas. You have to hoof it from the plane to the building. The arrow is pointing to a couple who became our favorite traveling buddies. We ate dinner with them every night, laughing the entire way through.|
|One and only selfie|
|Funny how much more pleasant it is to get up early to watch the sun rise directly across from our balcony than it is to get up early to get 5 kids ready for school.|
|Our balcony is far left, second from top.|
|Christmas concert and tree lighting in Port Lucaya.|
|A foot photo is required at the beach, is it not?|
|We had a lot of these.|
|To burn off those drinks, Bryan and I went kayaking each morning. Our new friends happened to see us from the beach both days, and took our photo the second day.|
|View from our room. We kayaked around that farthest bend and kept on going.|
|Sunset on our last night.|
|Last photo before heading to the airport Monday morning. I may have been crying.|
I promise, that was my last trip for a long, long time.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled horrible weather.
Have a lovely day!
