Way Back When-esday

I love vacations...who doesn't, right? One of my fellow teachers posted on facebook that she was enjoying St. Thomas. That sure brought back some memories.The first real vacation Damian and I took together back in the summer of 2006 was to St. Thomas. This was the first trip that didn't include driving to Indiana to visit family, visiting our Florida beaches, or going to the mountains of Georgia or Tennessee. This was also the first time we left our baby girl Emma with her grandparents for an extended stay. Needless to say, we had an amazing time and made some wonderful memories! St. Thomas is beautiful and we definitely want to go back. Our friends Jon and Cathy lived on the island at the time--we're so glad they live much closer now--but we were able to go to a private island and spend time with them as well as much needed alone time. Now I can't even imagine taking a vacation without Emma and Max but it sure is nice to look back at our pictures and remember a fabulous time!

Enjoying banana daquiries...look at that view..Wow!
Absolutely Beautiful
