Sunday was our going home day. Enter sad sigh here! I was excited to see the kids though! We woke up early, had our luggage out in the hall (they load it for you) ate breakfast, then we were off to the airport. Once we were at the airport and through security, we ha lunch at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville before we left. It was my last Jamaican meal! Once we boarded the plain we had a 3 hr flight home. Customs was rediculously packed, so we got home around 6:30. We were welcomed home with some hugs and kisses from Maddie and Zack.
Thank you Amy and Michael for watching the kids for us. Thank you Claire and Gregory for suggesting the trip. It was beautiful and a very relaxing trip!!
After the boat ride we or ready and had a date with a professional photographer. He was a LOT of fun! After pictures we took in one of the best buffet meals I ha ever had in my life!! We watched a show and then mike and I turned in early. We were exhausted and I had to start packing.
I know it sounds like all we did was eat, but honestly, we did more. However, we did eat a LOT! The dinner was out on the beach Thursday night. It was beautiful! They ha lots of entertainment too. They had a small band, a man breathing fire, and then a large band playing all kinds of dance hits. Around 10, us four hit the piano bar to sing with Thomas (the piano player) again. After someone would sing he would immediately say "that was beau-TEE-ful, beau-TEE-ful, beau-TEE-ful". He got me to sing 3 songs that night. Since he would be off Friday and Saturday night, I made sure to get a picture with him before we left.
Mike and I will be celebrating our ten year anniversary this year. To commemorate the event, we decided to take a big trip. Another one of our friends (Claire and Gregory Fuller) are also celebrating 10 years and mentioned that we should all go to where they went on their honeymoon, Couples Resort in Negril, Jamaica. So we did!
We left early Wednesday (21st) morning. Once we landed in Jamaica, we had a 1.5 hour bus ride to our resort. So we got to see a lot of the country. It was a huge difference from USA in that there really is no middle class there. There were rich people and then poor people. Beautiful scenery though!
Once we checked in, we had an amazing lunch, took a nap, then enjoyed their amazing dinner. We took in a show and then went to the piano bar to sing out some tunes. It was a really fun night!!!
On the day of Maddie's recital, we had a visit from Grampy and Mamaw. We went to the high school gym to watch Miss Maddie do her thing! After her performance, we ended up sneaking out and going downtown to the Nascar Days Festival (Spring festival in Mo-ville). We had so much fun!!
