Staycation on the Water

Like last year, we enjoyed a quick trip to National Harbor for a change of scenery, some time in the pool and the infamous “silent disco” party. This year was much rainier than last, but that didn’t dampen our spirits as there was plenty to do indoors.

Dry and Wild Miami

Thanks to a tropical storm, half of our stay in Miami for Brian’s birthday was a bit wet. However, we took full advantage of the outside when the rain went away. Here are some highlights!

Wet and Wild Miami

Memorial Day weekend brought a super quick birthday trip to Miami, one of Brian’s most favorite cities. Half the stay was pretty rainy, and here’s how we braved the storms…

A Punta Cana Round Up

After a series of blog posts about our trip to Punta Cana, we had to share just one more round up of our final memories!

A Shoot by the Sea

Having a great experience last year, we decided to spring for a photo shoot among the palm trees and by the sea in Punta Cana. While it was a bit hot and sticky, the boys stuck it out, and we have some nice photos to show for it!

A Day at Sea

Thanks to new friends at Hispaniola Aquatic Adventures, we got out of the resort to enjoy some time on the sea. We snorkeled, learned how to enjoy coconut water, had a fabulous meal and played around in the shallow waters. A perfect half-day on the sea!

Paradisus Paradise

As mentioned, we enjoyed our stay in Punta Cana, and specifically The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real. Here are highlights from the pool and around the resort.

Punta Cana Paradise!

Spring break this year was a true treat – 85 degree, sunny days in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We made the most of the sun and headed to the beach several times, a very short walk from our resort room. Here are some beach-side highlights both above and under water!

More of the Sunshine State

The winter blues were setting in, so 3/4 of the family sought a blast of warmth and sunshine in Florida once again. While we only made it to the pool one day (and sadly, without pictures), we enjoyed all the sun and outdoors we could during a long weekend away with Nonna and Kathy!
