Bad quality picture but captures a beautiful memory. The place we rented included several bikes and was near a bike path. Ben watched the kids while my parents and I cycled out to the closest beach.


My parents flight was delayed and we were lucky to get a couple more hours with them on the island. We ate cuban sandwiches this the beach then fed our stale popcorn to the seagulls.

We queued up with dozens of other tourists for our turn with this landmark.

We got an awesome last minute deal through Priceline on a Westin hotel in Hollywood. Our stay there was very short but memorable. We arrived at the hotel way after bedtime but we let the kids stay up late and enjoy the incredible pools. The hotel had one pool over another with a transparent window on the bottom of the top pool. We were all transfixed watching the swimmers above us. In our room, the wall by the bathtub slid away so Violet could watch TV while she soaked. That morning, Violet and I slipped down to the shore to hunt for shells before we had to load back up for the airport. All in all we had a most marvelous vacation.

    Hey Bethany! I hope you are doing well! The kids are getting so big! I am moving to Houston this month. If you are still in Austin, once I get settled, maybe we can get together. Please email your phone number. Colette
