Aaron and I went on an early ten year anniversary trip to the Cayman Island. Oh my goodness, it was amazing. We have been planning this trip for so long and it did not disappoint in any way, shape or form. We flew out of Dallas, even flying without kids is awesome. We had a layover in Miami, where we slept on the floor of the airport and then we were off to Cayman. This was our view from the airplane.
The most beautiful water we have ever seen.
We deplaned to the ground, it is a small airport.
Then we had a short cab ride to our first hotel, the Marriott. It was a great hotel and we had an amazing view from our balcony. We could not believe we were in such a beautiful place.
We headed straight to the beach after we got settled and couldn't wait to relax in the water hammocks.
That first night I decided we might stay forever.
I had so much fun being with just Aaron. We enjoyed our time together so much.
Aaron out lounging.
Each day we went to the beach for awhile. The water was so calm and the temperature was seriously perfect.
The sunsets were nice too.
We did a fun excursion to go swim with the sting rays. They were awesome.
We also went snorkeling at a few spots an loved that. We did so much snorkeling. We checked out gear pretty much every day and loved finding so many cool fish, turtles and sting rays.
The view of sting ray city, it was like looking at a screen saver every morning.
We rode on this fun boat to get there and it was fun to see the whole island from a different view.
We got to check out a go pro which was so fun to get underwater shots and videos.
We also had fun checking out bicycles and going to the local farmer's market and getting some fruit and riding to the grocery store to pick up a few things.
After two days we switched hotels and went to the Ritz. Oh man it was just as fancy as you would imagine. We got upgraded to a suite that was huge and had an amazing view and took us much closer to the beach.
We would order food while lounging on the beach and it was so yummy.
Sunburn game, on point.
Aaron loved his fish tacos.
We spent a lot of time reading books and relaxing. This is just what I wanted to do, relax! This is a very relaxing island.
We spent pretty much all day at the beach and the pool until the sun went down. The sunsets were beautiful.
Love this man. It was very romantic vacation.
On Sunday we rented a car and drove to church. Aaron had to drive on the opposite side of the road so he was very focused.
Church was awesome. We met some amazing people and were so inspired by them.
Since we had a car we decided to explore the island some. We head out to the east side an saw the blow holes.
They were pretty cool.
The east side of the island is very cool, much less crowded and more laid back. We did Sunday brunch, which is a huge deal there. We went to a place called Tukka's. It was yummy and we were oh so full.
Aaron and I do pretty good at a buffet.
It was a beautiful view and a lovely meal.
We drove to a public beach and it was just us. I think when the water is higher it would be a fun place to swim but we just admired the amazing view.
Our last day, tears... We had so much fun but it was time to get home to our babies.
Good bye best vacation ever.
Then we were getting on a place to head home. I really do love this man. I loved being with just him, talking with him, running with him, eating with him, swimming with him, laughing with him, laying in our comfy bed. We had such a great time together. I love him more than ever.
My parents deserve to be translated. They are so amazing. The kids were so well taken care of. Brookey missed us the most but I'm pretty sure the other 3 aren't even sure we left. I took my Mom to get a pedicure after we got home and all the girls came with us.
While we were gone my parents took the kids to swim, play at the park, out to eat and entertained them during many days of rain.
I could not wait to get my hands on this baby boy.
The kids were very excited to see us and pretty excited with their gifts.
Go to the Cayman Island, it is amazing.
