Reporting from the Gulf.

I am sitting in my in my 3 bdrm, 3 bath villa drinking a beer. ~Landshark Lager~ mmmm. With a lime. Brewed in Jacksonville. LOVE IT.

We made it safe and sound. It has been a long day, but we got the kids to bed and are going to get a fresh start tomorrow. We drove to MN last night, checked into our hotel about 12 a.m., got up at 4 a.m. and headed to the airport. Totally worth the $110 we had to spend on our hotel room. ;o)

We had to take my car since the hubby’s truck is in the shop and had the luggage thing strapped to the rack. I was so smart and packed everything we would need for this morning seperately so that we wouldn’t have to unpack it. So instead of leaving it on top of the car for 4 hours, Justin wants to unload it and stick it into the car. He gets it down and I go to grab one end since it is heavy. Well, he turns around at that moment and I get an elbow to my nose and orbit. Jackass. Dropped me right to the frickin’ ground. I had a nice hump on my nose when I went to bed, but lo and behold, nothing but a little tenderness today. I would have been so pissed if I had black eyes my whole vacation!

We made it through security with no hassles, onto the plane, and everything went smooth until Ashton started freaking out because he was going to puke. Ugh. Luckily, he never did, but lets just say we were lucky to be in the very LAST row, next to the restrooms. I hope this toilet fear/ holding it in thing is just a phase.

We got our rented minivan in Miami, drove to our resort island, got everything settled and made it to the ocean right as the sun was setting. And we saw DOLPHINS not far from us -so, so cool. Beautiful sunset, tons of seashells. Lots of bitey little bugs -definitely need to buy some bug-spray tomorrow. I took my camera with, but have no pics to show. Still looking for my battery. I know it is here somewhere! I am really going to hate myself if I forgot it at home! Hopefully, tomorrow I will have an update WITH PHOTOS! Later!

    What an adventure already! Looking forward to the pics. And yes, I’m feeling much better! Keep safe. Pour on the bug spray and suntan lotion.
