Bahama Mama

I've been absent from this blog for way too long, but I have a good excuse (don't I always?). We just returned from our summer vacation in The Bahamas, where we stayed at Atlantis. Paradise Island was truly amazing. The beaches were pristine and the people were so friendly. I would highly recommend The Reef Atlantis for families. It was a splurge for us, but The Reef had all the amenities that you could possibly need and then some. My only wish was that Gracie would've been feeling better during this trip. She moved right from a bout of roseola into a cold. We never really had a mealtime without a meltdown. Sophie, on the other hand, had a blast. Never complained about the long flights, the hot weather...anything. She was always happy and excited about all the fun things we were going to do. All in all, a very tiring, but good experience. I'd do it again, when the kids are older!

Taxi from the airport to the resort...tired, but excited.

Sophie was so exuberant, you would've thought the taxi was what we came for!

Waiting in line for breakfast.  Sophie looks so old here.

Sophie and I went to the beach by ourselves, while Darren stayed with a sleeping Grace in the room.

We had a really nice "Mama and Me" time.

Sophie fell asleep at Johnny Rocket's at dinner.

Sophie and Grace in the lobby of The Reef.  Truly luxurious!

  1. Looks like you all had a great time! :-)

  2. Awesome pics! Thanks for helping me realize that it IS possible to take kids on a vacation.
