Oh Barbados, we miss you dearly already. How could we not with that perfect pristine white beach to soak up the sun, and pina colada's at the wave of a hand?
You hold the top spot for me as far as beaches are concerned.

Vacations, or "holidays" as they call them, are the best thing ever invented I've decided. 
This holiday was the perfect end to our time apart, and the perfect way to celebrate 1 year of school successfully completed. 
We met at the Barbados airport, were greeted with lovely smells of warm flowery wind, and 15 minutes later were soaking up the sun at the charming Crane Resort.

(I survived, barely, the two day flight alone with my 3 year old- thanks mostly to a nice and honest man who, during our layover in dallas, returned my wallet full of cash to me after finding it on the bathroom counter- oh brother chelsea:)

In fact, we loved the resort so much, we actually only left once!
So judge us for not desiring to take part in the culture, but to only be pampered and completely self indulgent... we get enough Caribbean culture at home:)

We did a lot of this...

and this...

and once our toes hit that white powdery sand, we never wanted to leave.

Okay, so Wyatt did do at least one active thing while we were there:) 
He was complaining that he felt lethargic from all the time spent laying around in the sun.
That's exactly what taking a holiday is about, no?
I quickly reassured him that laying on our behinds for 5 days at the beach, taking mid day naps, and eating too much, was completely deserved and expected.

and so we went on, laying about.

Tate thought "Bados" was really really really pretty, and loved her fruit punch smoothie she drank every day at the pool.

See those two lounge chairs to the right of the statue?
Yup, that was our patio... so dreamy.

Wyatt and I do have one regret from the trip and that was not making the stay, actually not being able to make the stay, longer. We did what we could on our student budget, but once we get our money tree in the backyard we'll be returning and staying for no less than 2 weeks:)

And you are more than welcome to join us!
