Just like that, we're back.
The ship from Coco Cay.
We spent five days cruisin' the Bahamas. Staying up real late and sleeping in even later. {Do you remember the last time you slept 12 hours straight?}

Sitting on the beach in Coco Cay reading books, sipping Pina Coladas and relaxing the day away.
dinner with new friends.

We met new friends at dinner that we laughed with as though we'd known them for years.


We explored Nassau on a scooter. {Crazy doesn't begin to explain this experience. Drivers in Bahamas are very different than Minnesota drivers!} Something J always wanted to do and something I'll hopefully never do again.

Most of all we loved spending time together, going where we wanted, when we wanted, doing what we wanted, catching up on sleep, long lost conversations and just being together. I highly recommend it!

It was good to go away, but it was good to come back too. You know what I'm talking about?

There's something lovely and exciting and so refreshing and great to go away and leave all the responsibilty behind but then there's something like right now, where my littles are sound asleep dreaming in their beds and J and my bigs are laughing around the table playing Scattergories reminding me that this is such a good life.

My cousin, who gave us such a gift by being here, did a great job with the kids and we didn't worry because we knew they were in great hands. She planned fun things for them, got them all the places they needed to be when they needed to be there and just took care of them and loved them even on the hard days.

Even still... I missed them like crazy.


I'm pretty sure they missed me too.
More pictures are on my facebook page here. Are we friends?
I've got a Facebook fan page here too, so go "like" me while you're there.

Glad you guys had a chance to go away and reconnect. I think it's so important for couples (especially parents) to do that from time to time. Welcome back!

I just want to write one word... jealous.

But you know, I love you and I'm happy for you and all that stuff too ;)
