Jamaica Mon!!

We arrived in Jamaica yesterday to kind of cool and windy weather! This is our 4th time on the island and we have never had anything but 85 degrees and sunny! Although it's better than the snow back home, it's still a bit disappointing to be here when it's unseasonably cool! Notice in the picture of Taylor with her tropical drink that she's wearing a fleece jacket! Today it's still on the cool side and very windy. It rains off and on too. Despite the weather, we are having a great time and we love this resort. It's our 3rd time back here. The great thing about it is that when you arrive, you are assigned to a vacation nanny for the entire stay. She watches your kids from 9-5pm every day and takes them to activities and meals if you want her to. Our nanny is Taydean and she is great with the girls. They love her! We left Peter and Ricky back home with Grandma and Grandpa but we really could have had them here. The nanny makes it so easy by helping out so much with the children. We didn't have a passport for Peter and Ricky really is a homebody and didn't want to come along. Now he's missing us though! The kids have done tie dying of teeshirts, crafts and contests/games where they won prizes. Since it's all-inclusive, we pay for nothing so we are thoroughly enjoying an unending amount of tropical drinks and awesome Jamaican cuisine! It's so nice to be able to order whatever you want knowing that it is all included in the cost of the stay here!! I would highly recommend this resort to if the weather would just return to normal!!!

I am so jealous, I have always wanted to go to Jamaica! Sorry about the cool weather...we had that issue when we went to Florida in August. Bummer! But I bet you are having a blast anyway!

I thought I'd let you know I am giving you an award! Come check it out!

I hope you had a great time in Jamaica but I heard there's a lot of germs down there. Check out our blog to learn more.

Best wishes from the germ squad.

I came across your blog as I was doing some casual research about the concept of a vacation nanny and have found a number of different views, but most people's echo your own. A lot of moms seem thrilled with having a vacation nanny and many of them had no hesitations at all about taking one on. Did you have any worries at first? Is this something you've done before this resort? Thanks so much! Your kids look like they're a lot of fun!
