Our First Family Vacation!

Two weeks ago (eeks i'm behind on blogging) we packed up and went on our first family vacation to Aruba!! I'd like to say that it was a flawless trip but it started off quiet rocky, we arrived at the airport and someone, not naming any names, brought my expired passport. So it started off our morning of Jason and I pointing fingers at each other about who's fault it was, you know how that goes. Thank the good Lord for our wonderful neighbor Shelley, she so graciously drove us to the airport and mind you its a 45 min drive, I frantically call her and she's just arriving home in time to grab my other passport, hop back in her car and drive 45 mins AGAIN to bring it me! GOD BLESS HERE and thank God for great neighbors!! Te good news is that we left home with plenty of time to spare since it was our first time traveling with Brody, so we had enough time to get checked in and through security! So, you can image what kind of a "fun time" I was, stressed to the max and still hadn't had any coffee, it was actually a shocker, i was the head case and not Jason as we expected!

Ahh Aruba, we had finally landed and Brody did SO well on the flight there and by the time we got to our condo it was late and all went to bed. Was so nice to wake up the next morning and walk out on the balcony and see the ocean and feel the heat (already) with a nice cool breeze, ahh paradise. Now this was Jason and I's 3rd trip to Aruba but this time we were able to share our vacation with our dear friends, The Osendorf's...Jesse, JRo, Logan and Landon!

We spent countless hours on the beach, in the ocean and at the pool. Brody is a HUGE fan of the water, so each morning we'd head to the pool by 9:30 and stay until about noon and then head back inside. Then Jason and I took turns, one of us would take a nap with Brody and one of us would head back to the pool. It was great but the only downer was that Jason and I didn't get a lot of time together. JRo and Jesse were kind enough to watch Brody on our anniversary so that we could go out to dinner. We also watched Landon and Logan one night so Jesse and JRo could go to dinner, then of course we had a girls night out and a guys night out!

A day at the beach is hard work!
