We made it! Oh, it’s heavenly. The travel day was long, of course, as our closest airport is smaller. We had to get up at 2am to catch a 5am flight. We had three legs total. The boys were angels. I almost wondered who took my boys and replaced them with the pod children. Swing did start to get antsy at the end of the third leg, but that was 10 hours in. It was a relief, really; I knew 12 hours traveling was a LOT to ask of a 4 and 8 year old!
At any rate, we got here, and my parents were here to meet us! We are so excited that they pushed out their leave date here (they were going to leave the day before we came in) so they could see us for a few days. They were kind enough to go to the front desk of the hotel and pick our room for us (early), so we have a nice one. The “better” ones go fast! So we have a lovely balcony and are close to the pools and the “super deli.”
It’s been hot. I won’t complain, though. It’s so nice to feel hot and get into a lovely pool. It’s so relaxing to have fun with the boys and keep them so busy that they don’t have time to argue or whine. The food is so tasty! It’s such a hospitable country; the people are so friendly and helpful. It’s really easy to be grateful and in a good mood when things are so easy (There are no chores)!
There’s lots of walking, too. The first day I was wondering if I’d be crabby about it until I realized that I needed to be walking, anyway. :D The resort is spread out quite a bit, so even though we are close to the things we’d do at the resort, when we want to leave, we have to walk quite a ways to do so. My legs are a bit sore just on the second day. That’s good… I’m working hard enough to get sore, but it doesn’t feel like work when I’m doing it!
Anyway, it’s time to go to bed now. I’m feeling really spoiled and really grateful right now to be at such a lovely place.
