Having a ball-part 3!!

The sign at the island:

This island has a water park, restaurant, grill and 3 spots to snorkel and see lots of fish! We spent most the day Thursday there:

water park-the tubes were so much fun! We got Victoria to go down the little slide, but then the big bucket dumped all its water and she freaked! So Dan and I took turns going up and down the other slides. I have not been at a water park for a very long time!

Victoria sleeping in the middle of the water park. Danny played in the water slides for hours!

Bartender, set up another one!

Dan and Victoria after trying to swim with the really heavy surf. Right after they walked into the surf a large wave knocked them right off their feet and under water.
That was it for us swimming with the heavy waves and kids.

Makes you just want to squish those cheeks :)

The brain trust solving all the world's problems :)

Grampy, Grammy and Danny playing in the sand after dinner

We saw this going back and forth along the coast:

Dan, Grammy, Katie and her girlfriend went horseback riding Friday am so we had to keep the kids occupied while they were gone. Victoria asked for Dan all morning long.

They were playing in the sand waiting for me to finish my coffee and chatting

I just LOVE this photo!

Danny playing in the sand with auntie carla and cousin cole

Mommy if you don't put that camera down right now I am going to take a picture of you at this angle!!

We saw lots of these off the beach going into downtown

Sharing his ice cream, aaawwww :)

Our last night we all met for dinner at the hotel and had a great time!

Do I really have to go home?!?! I want to stay with my cousins!

We ended up leaving the resort before noon on Saturday as there was lots of traffic downtown for Carnival. Luckily they had a Sbarro at the airport so we all ate pizza while we waited for our plane. Victoria even napped for 1 1/2 hours in the waiting area.
We arrived into Miami at 5:30 and had to kill time till our flight home at 8:30. So we ate hotdogs and chilled out by letting the kids run around. We changed Victoria into pjs for the flight home. Both kids were asleep by the time the plane left the ground!
Our flights went very well and we were home and in bed by 11:30! The dogs were so excited to see us that they would not leave our sides.
We all slept in till 8:00 Sunday am. I spent most of the day unpacking and doing laundry. It was a rude awakening to let the dogs out in the am and it was only 48 degrees!!!!
Nana was nice enough to have dinner so we did not need to worry about cooking dinner!
Victoria kept asking when we were going on vacation :)
It is so much fun to go away with everyone and so good for the kids to be with family! Thanks Grampy and Grammy for everything!!
