Let me tell you about my trip. The very first morning I got in my run. It was a very short run but it was also vacation (and a thousand more excuses) so I was sooooo not stressed out about it. I did put on my running shoes and hit the road. Then I proceeded to play, all day long, ALL DAY. We played everything from beach volleyball to full contact beach football. Just walking through the sand was a challenge so you can imagine how hard it was to play tackle football. Aside from the bruises on my arms it didn't hurt to be tackled in the sand. There were a few minor injuries during football but it was so much fun!!! I counted it as a workout every day.
We played like this every day actually. It was constant activity. We played on the beach then moved to the pool and then to the lazy river, back to the beach, hot tub, pool, etc. We don't need theme parks or roller coasters, just give us sand and a pool. I will say the water was freezing cold, the weather was cold and even the sand first thing in the morning would freeze your feet off. I don't know how it happened but I ended up sunburned in 60 degree weather. Even my precious little flank steak is burned. The lazy river was by far the coldest of all the pools in our condo. It took my breath away when I stepped into it. It felt like sticking a sprained ankle into a bucket of ice water. Eventually it went numb and the pain went away, then dad would tip us over and it was cold all over again!
Ohhhhh bathing suit picture....I'm ok with it!
The water was sooooooo cold!
When you play hard, you must rest well!
Now on to the food.....Ahhhhh my favorite part of the entire vacation. We got to eat sandwiches everyday for lunch (my fave!) and then out to dinner at night. I tried to be good on vacation and diet at the same but I failed miserably. The candy and cookies just sitting around were my downfall and not enough water. We (I use that term loosely) even made homemade cookies.
Messy ribs at Lamberts!
One of the greatest places ever...this one actually got a shirt that said I Heart TCBY!
