Turks and Caicos

Beaches Resort   June 4-11, 2011
Oh my.  How do I do justice to such a great vacation?  Let's start with some pictures...

The clearest waters and most fish we've ever seen. 
Rachel is like a fish.  She snorkels without fear.

Ben gives a thumbs up to Caribbean warm waters.

Jake prefers scuba diving, but humors us occasionally by snorkeling.  His main job is to keep Mom from drowning.

Triple-decker at the pool.

While Dave and Jake went on scuba tours (six of them!), we enjoyed the beach (and water slides, but I didn't get any pictures).
This is how I get time to finish my book on the beach.

What's this?  The boys trying to turn sandcastle building into a competition? Who would've guessed...

Looks like the boys think they won...

Teppanyaki dinner

Baking cookies with Cookie Monster.


Dave enjoying the only surf around.

We LOVE the beach!

Goodbye for now...we'll be back.

Every vacation feels like the best one at the time...I imagine we'll have more "best" vacations to come. Like Rachel tells us, "the best part is spending time with my family."  (The boys call her a kiss-up, but I think she's sweet.)

On Our Way

You know it is going to be a great vacation when your family members all call to wish you well before you leave and warn you to be careful.  "Tell Dave," they all say.  And then on your way to the grand destination, you have occasion to sleep on the floor of the airport.  We're in for some memorable fun!

Charlotte USA, thanks for vacuuming before we arrived.
