Our Week in Paradise...

Our Week in Paradise...

As you can see by the slideshow, we had a terrific time in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic! We "earned" this trip, courtesy of NAPA by working our tails off in 2008. We spent 6 days at the Moon Palace Resort, Spa and Casino. Terry played golf for 2 of the days, which he loves. I spent 4 fabulous days at the pool, reading, sleeping and just plain being lazy. My biggest decision was trying to decide when to go eat! The NAPA part of the trip was fun too-we had had three terrific parties-one on the beach, one a Dominican-themed dinner and finally a fancy dinner. We took a tour of the eastern part of the island, where we saw sugar cane fields, coffee and cocoa beans being roasted, a typical school and cigar making. We went snorkeling with sting rays and sharks too!! I would go back in a heartbeat!!!

Happy Birthday Sarah!!!

Today is Sarah's 2nd birthday. We spent the afternoon with her opening presents and eating cake. She was so funny to watch with the gifts-she kept looking at them and didn't quite know what they were for until we let her open them. She figuresd it out pretty quick! she loved the big floor puzzle that Grandma Jean and Papa Jerry gave her and had to help Papa put together the table and chairs we got her. She is at such at fun age. We love her very much!!!
