Our niece Michelle. (There are a lot of Michelles in our family.) Can you believe she has three children?
|A long shot of most of us in the lagoon.|
|Grandma chatting with Eva before dinner.|
|Lisa is a grandmother to three, yet has her own one-year-old, Sophia!|
|Cousins have fun even if they're just hanging around chatting.|
(How Lucas could stand to wear jeans, a sweatshirt, and a hat is a complete mystery to me. I, of course, was a sweaty mess the entire time.)
|Michelle with her two darlings, Nicole and Kristen.|
|We actually got a family picture! A true rarity around here. (Jill extracted a promise.)|
Lucas and Sam in one of the resort's many pools. (Six, if I'm not mistaken.) Lucas decided that he wasn't having any fun if he wasn't with his cousins.
|Reading by the pool! I didn't get to do it as much as I had hoped, but I enjoyed every minute.|
Another pool. Tied with the lagoon for the kids' favorite. They even have a shallow sand pool for younger kids! (Eva loved not having to wear her lifejacket.)
I was sitting by the pool with Michelle, reading. Nicole came over to get her book out of the beach bag, and at first I thought they were sharing a library book! I wondered how that was working out, and then I realized that they both had a copy. Cracked me up.
Rob and Lisa's family. (Oops! I caught some of you eating! Sorry about that.) These are the generous benefactors that took us all on the trip of a lifetime. How do you say thank you for something like that??
