I am sitting in a four poster king size bed in the most beautiful room. We have two adjoining rooms and on the girls' side there are two queen beds. They have their own bathroom and balcony and jacuzzi tub. Lucy is watching a DVD in our room while I write this. Emma and Mike are next door catching a little extra sleep.
Beyond the balcony is a labyrinth of paths, bridges and boardwalks that weave you in and out of turquoise pools. There are lazy rivers, swim up bars, shallow toddler areas, and a splash pad.
We went to the beach two times yesterday. This was Lucy's first time in the gulf. Emma Jane immediately started to comb for shells and trinkets. She found some treasures that will give her a tactile memory of the beach and this trip. She said "mom, this isn't just a shell. It is something physical that can help me me remember all the parts that aren't." (No way is she 9 years old)
We are here for the wedding of Eric Pharr. He is Linda Plunkett's son. (Mike's step brother) So we are having a family reunion of sorts. We love our granna...
We are eating amazing food and enjoying wine and beer and mudslides, and margaritas...the list goes on and on.
I am heading out to the balcony now to eat breakfast (room service is 24 hours a day!)
Goodbye for now!
