Listen, like all things in my life, Puerto Rico snuck up on me. My work and our personal lives have been so busy since March of this year, that I feel mostly like I'm running from one place to the next, so I don't always have time to think through things that are far ahead. But I was really excited and then almost surprised when our long-awaited trip to Puerto Rico for Honey's birthday was upon us. And the summer was SO busy with work that by the time it was time to go- I was desperately needing a vacation. I think we all were. So, when at last minute we almost cancelled due to all the hurricane activity, I was heartbroken.
But after checking a million sites and even chatting with the people at the hotel there- we decided to go. And it didn't rain a drop while we were there. It was the most amazing, relaxing, enjoyable and beautiful trip ever. The kids loved it, Honey loved it, I think Nikki loved it and Bennett and I certainly LOVED it.
It's like mexico, but with a bit more culture, and it is certainly cleaner and easier to navigate since it's a part of the US. It was great! We felt so safe and there was so much to see and do- we didn't have a dull moment- unless we wanted to. :-)
Here are a few pictures of the first part of our trip- and I will keep posting as there is a lot to cover! What a great trip. I want to go again. Tomorrow. And now I am especially sad since they really did just get hit by a hurricane. I can't even imagine. :-(
