We got the same spot we were in yesterday… perfect. The boys hit up the swim up bar at 10:05am, just after they opened. Our friends from Chicago joined us shortly later and we basically drank and swam and relaxed all day. We think Lulu got sun poisoning… the spots on her back and arms were getting worse as she was out in the sun. I bought her an overpriced freaking swim shirt from the little shop by the pool. It worked, though.
I grabbed a couple plates of food from the little restaurant by the pool/beach and the kids snacked by the pool. Lulu cracked me up by lounging back, ice cream cone in one hand, hot dog in the other… picking up pieces of noodles off her belly. Ryan put her in the stroller after she ate and walked her around. She passed out, and slept in the stroller for a LONG time.
Amelia told us she secretly peed in the pool. Awesome. Though I bet with all the people sitting around the swim up bar, drunk, that many other people drunkenly choose to pee in the pool rather than get out and go to the bathroom. Kind of gross, but likely very true.
The days actually seem kind of short here. By 5pm its getting shady and the sun is setting. We went back to the room around 4:30 and everyone showered and got dressed for dinner. We walked to the shopping mall near the resort and the kids played on the playground and rode the merry go round. I bought an ornament for our vacation, and then we went to dinner.
Our kids can’t hang as long as we can, and were asking to go back to the room to go to bed. Lame. But whatever. Earlier today, Ryan and Porter did a quickie intro to scuba in the pool. Tomorrow they’re doing scuba lessons and going out into the ocean on Monday. They have an actual hand signal for “shark” so…. uhm. yeah. That sounds safe.
