It’s Better In The Bahamas…really! July 16, 2012

It was the mother of all holidays.  The best vacation in the history of vacations.  Magical…relaxing…decadent…family…beautiful…restorative…fun…tasty…

The occasion: The Twins’ Birthday

The place:  Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas

The guest list: Denise, Dennis, Seanny, Erin, Meg and me

Highlights include:

  • Beach lounging, Caribbean swimming
  • Water park adventures (Meg loved the Lazy River, and by “loved” I mean she went on it multiple times EVERY day and “invited” any willing (or not willing) adult to join her repeatedly…)
  • A day at the spa
  • AMAZING dinners (Denise planned each night at a different restaurant)
  • Swimming with the dolphins (including a dolphin push across the lagoon)
  • Casino
  • Relaxing (I read 2 books:  Wild by Cheryl Strayed and Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  I recommend them both btw.)
  • Golfing (for Seanny and Dennis)

  • An authentic Junkanoo parade!
  • A 4th of July Fireworks display that blew my mind!
  • And sunsets…

Thanks for arranging such an amazing holiday Denise!  I loved every single minute!
