Dominican Republic

Well we're back! We've been back for a week but wow it takes a while to get back up to speed sometimes. The Dominican was beautiful! The weather was a balmy 80 degrees with humidity and the occasional rain shower, perfect tropical weather. Our room was huge with it's own jacuzzi tub! The resort we stayed at had 7 different restaurants to eat at and great food. All of the staff were really nice and helpful. We went zip-lining one day which was quite an adventure. It took us an one hour truck ride to get there and then they had a 12 line course through the canopy. It was a great course and it was cool to see the country side and more rural areas. Another day we went snorkling with sting rays, sharks, and all over the reef with tropical fish. All in all it was a great trip. It was quite far away though. 7-8 hours of flying time depending on everything. Coming back through customs is never fun but Miami is sooooooo busy!

This is what humidty does to my hair. The white girl afro.
This is me unsuccessfully paddleboarding.
This is me successfully paddleboarding. It's much easier to maneuver while on your knees but I wanted to be cool so I tried to stand up for a while. I eventaully had enough of dunking myself and stuck to kneeling.
Beautiful view from where we snorkeled and paddelboarded.

Beach bums! Lots of reading and sunbathing.

Our view everyday.

Ben reading....the only time he really reads books is on vacation. He'd rather read things on how to do his gunsmithing or read a catalog to see how much things cost. I like stories, he likes to read for information.

I kind of felt like a queen in this bed.Sitting in LAX, we arrived at long term parking at 6:00 a.m., got to the airport, got our tickets and checked in luggage, through security to our gate, in 25 minutes! That has to be some kind of record, thus we were reallllyyyy early and had time to kill.
