We spent 3 nights at the Crystal Towers and it was perfect for us. We had a nice ocean view, easy access to the beach, a great pool set-up, and a kitchen.
So what is a vacation like for the Landrys these days? Up at 6:15 each morning (Jack and Cora were aligned on this one), breakfast, out to the beach by 7:30, 3 full hours of sand castles, water play, and pool time before bringing the fair-skinned ones back inside. Then LEGO play (we chose not to leave home without them), lunch, naptime (hallelujah!), and then more beach. Naps meant Jacob and I also got to nap and finish books on this trip! On Saturday, we were out of the condo by 10:30 but by that point had already spent several hours at the beach/pool. You can be surprisingly efficient with your mornings with small children!
Vacation seemed like a good time to get back to cooking, but in a fun way. We picked out some interesting recipes (lentil galettes and lemon/eggplant risotto) and brought all the ingredients with us.
|Lemon-Eggplant risotto - delicious, we will repeat this!|
Here are some pictures from our trip:
