Apparently, I'm allergic to paradise -- within the last 48 hours, I've managed to get covered head to toe in some sort of rash. Luckily, it's more humorous than anything else, and it's probably just a result of using different sun tan lotion than I'm used to.
Today was very much a chill day (I suppose, like every day here at the resort). We spent time at the pool, and our little man really enjoyed it. With his float, he was literally able to run around the shallow end of the pool. It was quite a sight to see.
Here are some photos from the past few days:
Here we are showing off our archery skills. I felt like I was back in Boy Scout camp with this activity.
Here I am in front of the world's largest luluv palm branch. Think of the etrog that goes with this sucker!
Ahhh, a view of paradise. The walk on the beach just never gets old.
Here I am in the Mystery Door. The door and door frame are randomly placed here and there's no sign explaining why. A couple guesses: (1) it's part of some sort of art exhibit (2) it's an original door to some important building which is no longer. Either way, it's funky.
Child care here at the resort really has been top notch. The staff are absolutely wonderful with our little guy. Though, there are some obvious differences between what we're used to and the European style child care they offer here. A few examples: (1) our pack and play has both a top sheet and blanket included in it (which the maid dutifully makes up every day, even though we take it away because of the Sids danger it presents) (2) dinner opens at 6:45pm -- early for the European crowd, but 15 minutes before our little man's bed time. And (3) below, you can see the food they offer in the baby room -- there's baby food, 4 sugared cereals and 1 "fitness" cereal and Oreos. Apparently, the health kick Americans are on doesn't extend to the other side of the pond. And how can they not offer the ubiquitous Cheerios?
Shira at the play ground, keeping a watchful eye on both myself and the little guy.
