I am ALREADY missing the DR, so I know it’ll be fun writing these posts and reminiscing. Yep, I’m already ready to go back!!
We flew out on a Saturday afternoon, which was SUCH a great time to fly because the airport wasn’t super packed and a madhouse like it normally is. We flew out of the new International airport terminal in Atl, and it was SUPER nice!
Check out Big Jon’s excited face!
We started making friends right away with everyone in the airport. Good thing, because they let our ginormous 31 utility totes pass as purses! Ha!!
Total creepers….way too much fun on the plane!
Our flight was called a “charter flight,” which meant they brought out a hot meal, champagne, mints, headphones for a movie, etc. In true Danielle fashion, I slept through every bit of it!! The flight was a few hours, so I took full advantage for a serious business nap. We did meet some people on the plane who live ONE street over from us though! Crazy huh? What are the odds?!?
We landed around 6 and headed straight to the resort. It was HUGE!! They upgraded us because we were celebrating Brian & Laura’s one year anniversary, so we both got upgraded suites. Awesome!!
Yes, we did use the hot tub the one afternoon it rained…)And Laura may or may not have flooded their entire room one night filling it up! Funny memories!)
I’m not really sure what that means….but we always have some random pic of Jon in the bathroom on vacations trying to look cool!
After checking out the rooms, we headed straight to the International Buffet for dinner. We were starving because we didn’t eat anything on the plane….(except Big Jon- I’m pretty sure he tore it up.)
This was our backyard…
And after breakfast the next morning (the french toast & oatmeal were the BOMB!!), we spent a little time checking out the resort before heading to the pool. It was HUGE and there was lots of walking everywhere, which of course I LOVED! You could take a golf cart if you wanted, but what’s the fun in that?
There was wildlife everywhere! Brain “Turtleman” Adams was in heaven!
Working on his modeling contract…
I have about 8 million pics of the peacocks. They were fascinating to me- and they really are gorgeous creatures!!
I’m really scared of animals, so I was proud of myself for getting this close!
We had a great day at the pool- reading, swimming, and water aerobics. I was teacher’s pet…I think he either liked my blonde hair or could tell that I used to be a Jazzerciser!
We enjoyed a yummy lunch & headed to the beach before dinner. All of the food was killer…
Isn’t it funny to see how your hubby likes your hair best? Big Jon LOVES when my hair is nappy and a total hot mess!!
We were in bed by midnight so Laura & I could wake up to go to the gym. HARD CORE, yes, but it makes me feel SO much better to work out! Plus, when you have the WHOLE week to do whatever, whenever, why NOT work out? That’s one of my favorite parts about vacation…no schedule, no itinerary!
It was smooth traveling and a GREAT first full day!!
