Aruba 2008

Last week, we came back from our family vacation in Aruba. We have been about 5 or 6 times before, and we always go with my husband's family - his parents, brother and sister-in-law, and usually an aunt and uncle too. (I'm one of those lucky folks who actually enjoys my in-laws quite a bit!)

These are the moments I relish the most on vacation.

We had a grown-up night out with my brother- and sister-in-law. It was a blast and completely silly; after a delish dinner we hit a piano bar. We said "one drink"...I think we left after about 6.

You get to take pictures like this, that you never have time for at home...

The coconut flan finale to family dinner out presented with great flourish by O.

We took O on a submarine ride, which was truly cool - shipwrecks and coral reefs and lots of sea life he's never seen. Down 130 feet and you get the "wow"...

Our last big dinner night out pooped out our little party girl.

Mmm. Happy.

Oh, your post makes me so want a time out on some Island. You look radiant, your hubby looks so delighted and your lil people look so charmed!
I am going to hide in your suitcase next time or come as the nanny...! Glad you had a wonderful time and are back home safely!
