Jamaican Vacation

Well no quilting this week, but hopefully I will have some to share next week. As promised here are a few shoots from my vacation. This was our first "family" vacation. The resorts we stayed at had a great kids program that even included the smallest guess. It was the first time LM had been to any kind of day care and I was very sad on the first time we dropped her off and she saw the toys and crawled away with out looking back. At least she was happy yo see us when we came to pick her up. It was nice, we put her in for a couple hours each day, but still had lots of family time.This was the view from our room. I think anytime you can see the sea from your room it's a good view.

We did leave the resort twice, once to go to Mystic Mountain, the photo is from the chair lift on the way to the top. This was a really long chair lift ride and the views were great. I felt fine, except when the chair lift stopped then I didn't like being so high.
At the top we road the Jamaican Bobsled, which is like a one person roller coaster where you control the breaks. This was a lot of fun. After this we zipped line halfway down the mountain. It was a series of 7 zip line and was quite the rush.

We also swam with the Dolphins, this was quite the experience and I highly recommend it. This was more fun than I expected. Something DH really wanted to do, but I am so glad that we did it.
The rest of the time as spent on the resort where they had lots of activities for the kids. although a little young, we took LM to one of the Sesame Street show. She bounced to the music.
We also took her out on the glass bottom boat ride. She spent most of her time trying to eat the hand rail. There were some great views both above and below the water. DH and I were surprised that we used the same boat when we went snorkeling.
Most of the time was just spent relaxing by one of the pools.
A very relaxing time was had by all.
