A week in Paradise!

So, our vacation to the Bahamas was AWESOME!!! We had a vacation of a lifetime! Wahoo!!! It was so amazing. It was so nice to be able to just be together and have so much care-free fun! We felt like little kids all over again!
We loved every minute of it.

We stayed on Paradise Island at a resort called Atlantis for 5 days. This picture doesn't do it justice, but you get the idea.

We stayed in a five star hotel and because of some room confusion, we got a room upgrade, so we ended up in a suite! SCORE! It was really fun for us.

Here is the trip in a nutshell:
Swimming in the aqua/blue bath water warm ocean..aaagghhh

Flying down some out of control water slides at the aquadventure water park. (one slide went so fast and so straight down that our backs didn't even touch the slide. It shot us underground through a clear tube that was in a pool of sharks.)

Very fancy business dinners: it was fun to get all dressed up and eat dinner next to the pool with really fancy tables, a band from the Bahamas, candle light, and enough food for an army. (there were 1000 people there from Ben's company, 500 employees and each brought a guest)

Chillin out in our awesome room with an amazing view, watching the olympics, with no interruptions.

Awards night: Another fancy dinner where Ben was recognized for all he did this year. Go Ben!

There were so many other awesome things about the trip, but it would take too long to write every detail, so we just posted the main ones. We soaked it all in and had to pinch ourselves often to really believe we were there. It was great! We are already anxiously hoping for another chance to do this again sometime.

We had a great time and our kids also had a fun week with grandma. She took wonderful care of them, and we didn't have to worry about them. Thank you grandma!
