we're baaaaaack

We had a great time in the Bahamas :)  Sun, relaxation and fun sure makes a body feel good.  I was even nice for a whole three days after we returned, but much to my children's chagrin, I am fully engaged back into normal home life.

This trip was back to the Sandals resort we visited last year.  Everything looked really nice{despite a recent hurricane} and although the weather was not completely cooperative, we were still able to enjoy every last second of freedom, I mean vacation.

My computer is giving me fits, but I was able to get a few pictures uploaded...

 Because it's tradition, a close up.  I want you to pay extra close attention to the contrast in Todd's and my skin.  It is true he is exceptionally pasty{I love you honey}, but how is my spray tan looking!?  Pretty darn good wouldn't you say.  No Jersey Shore here.    I did have a  mild anxiety attack while in the spray booth, I certainly did not want to come out looking like a "guidette", but I was pleasantly surprised at the results.

 Last year at on this vacation we were fortunate enough to meet some great people, and they were all back this year as well.  These incentive vacations can be brutal at times{I'm not complaining, just explaining}, and meeting even one person you care to carry on a conversation with can be nearly impossible.  There are several young{our age, "young" by the trucking industry standards}couples with kiddos and all that.  They are even from the south which is great because we could actually meet up again.  The night this picture was taken we escaped the resort to have  a big fancy dinner in Nassau.  This mansion was built 270 years ago by a pirate!  I thought that was so cool.

It was a windy week to say the least. 

Sandals has a private island that is short boat ride from the resorts dock. It was closed most of the week due to that darn wind, but finally on Thursday we were able to walk the beach and search for shells{Holden had big shell expectations}

And because it was Wednesday...we took a picture in the mirror{just like at home}.  Don't worry, name badges are not the latest craze in island wear :)

One last look at that glorious water

Well, I think I'll be back next week.  The weather is beautiful here.  I have a summer schedule on the brain and can't seem to get in front of the computer.  Check back soon, I think I have some projects brewing. Have a great Friday!

Looks like a wonderful trip! I'm so thirlled that you and Todd get to have some fun get-aways! Although I would rather be in the Bahamas than in Iowa, I cannot complain...the waether here has been gorgeous! I am so ready for summer too, but I have to remind myself that it is still possible we may get snow again! love to you!
