Jamaica - ooh I wanna take ya....

We're home - and we had a fabulous time! It was a week in paradise, to say the least. Here are some pics of the grounds of the resort - so beautiful! We didn't even leave the resort - there was so much to do there. Lots of time spent on the beach or poolside - resting and relaxing. Lots of time playing in the water. Lots of great quality time with Hubs and the kids. This trip was just what we needed.

There were all sorts of activities available - hobbie sailing, water skiing, snorkeling, diving - Hubs did it all! I snorkeled, but preferred sitting on the beach and reading a good book.
My reading spot. Check out these bed cabanas. If you rent them for a day, your meals and drinks are brought to you - actually anything you could need. We didn't rent one - but it's top on my list next time! :)
A room with a view... You can't really tell from the photo, but the ocean is right outside our room. This is the balcony from our room.
Little One had a grand time exploring. I love this picture because it is a perfect example of how we spent a lot of our time with him - We'd find something of interest and by the time I could pull out my camera to take pics, he was off to something else.

I took a ton of pictures - plus they had professionals walking around the grounds snapping shots - so I have about 250 pictures of our trip! Now, don't worry, I won't bore you with all of them, but will post some of the best in the coming days.

oh no...please "bore" us with all 250 shots and let us live vicariously through them. Pretty please with sugar on top?

Looks like paradise for sure! I can totally see you relaxing by the beach with a good book. Did you have the kids with you at all times, or did you do a babysitting service or anything? i'm always curious about those and if people really use them.

So glad you had such a great trip! After my recent luxury trip (honeymoon) I've decided it just needs to be done. So glad you enjoyed yourself!
