Meg, that's was my thoughts. Honestly, when I think waterfalls, the last scene I had in my head was what we saw at Dunn's River Falls!

It's Friday Eve! Not really for me as I need to work on Saturday to prep for the trip! DD12 has 4 softball games on Saturday and at least 2 on Sunday....not sure when we will pack. Hoping Friday night!

Glad I could give you a smile today girl! My DH has been joking with me that we will head back there. UMMMM NO! I just look at him and say, then you are carrying DAD! My dad has some mobility issues. 3 back surgeries will do that to your legs/feet! I can just see my Dad trying, then falling and taking out everyone DOWN falls from him! Now that would be funny to watch, as long as no one got hurt!

Waterfalls are for admiring visually, auditorily (?), and maybe standing under like they do in the movies (in my mind, Matthew McConaughey is there ) but climbing? .......Nah!

Four games in one day??? Is that typical? It just seems a little much to me. Kids need a little downtime, and so do their parents!

Carol, that isn't all that abnormal. We actually prefer it to 2 games Friday night and 2 games on Saturday. That saves a lot of time on travel, the facility is 1 hour from where we live. SO, we have to stay all day Saturday, but have no games Friday night! I guess it's a toss on which is better!

I slept like CRAP last night. WIDE awake at 1:30 a.m. and didn't go back til sleep till after 4:00 a.m.......and BAM the alarm was loud and clear at 5:45 a.m. I think it is all year end school stuff, wrapping up work stuff and worrying about what the summer may bring. GRRRRRRRRR Oh well, it's FRIDAY! Only 3 days and we fly out for BEACH/SAND/FUN! I can sleep in every single day if I want!!!!!!

I honestly haven't slept well all week. Monday night, Tuesday too. I think Wednesday was ok, but last night was the worst. Good part, I got a lot of reading done last night! NOT how I prefer to spend my over night time!

Ugh on the not sleeping. Makes it tough to get through the day. But you can make up for it on vacay! Sleeping in, dozing by the pool. Afternoon naps. Yep, it all sounds great!

Oh, wouldn't you know it! You were working so hard leading up to your vacay and that bug took advantage. Take care and I hope you feel well enough to enjoy yourself most of the time!

Trip was amazing. We snorkled daily (well, for me except the 2 days I was sick). It was PARADISE! We would eat around 8:00 a.m. breakfast, then go to the beach/ocean. Swim/play until 10:00 snorkeling. Then go back to ocean till around 12:30, then lunch. After lunch, we hit the water park for HOURS! Then back to the room to recover and play cards. OH and then DINNER between 7 and 8:00. We were typically in bed asleep by 10:00...wiped from all the playing. DS15 stayed in the room a lot. Playing on his computer. He did do the glass bottom boat and snorkeled once. I was thrilled. We also did catamaran, kayaking and DD12 and DH tried paddle boarding and scuba, (both were fail, but they tried).

I was sick all day Thursday and Friday, woke up Saturday a new person. Not sure what it was, but it was bad. Never threw up or had D, just horrible muscle aches and stomach pain. At one point Thursday night/friday morning, Dennis and I were both scared it was appendicitis. Worried WTH you do then. Thankfully that major pain passed in a few hours. I think it was just a wicked virus that thankfully, only I got!!! Everything else was perfect all the time! I suggest it to ANYONE!

Forgot to mention, the renewal of vows went great. I made it through the ceremony and for 1 picture, then I turned SHEET WHITE and about passed out. Dennis took me back to the room and put me to bed again. They all went to the reception. DS15 even made a special toast to my PARENTS! sad I missed it, but so glad we did it.

today will be a controlled Up Day! There is so much to do, I am completely overwelmed! Life in the fast lane, I KNOW! We got back way late last night and were up way early this morning. Barely 5 hours (at best) sleep last night!

I'm so glad it was wonderful, Monica! It sounds lovely, and very active! It sucks you had to be sick a couple of days, but like you said, nothing serious and no one else got it - blessing! Glad you're home safe and well. Be nice to yourself getting caught up and back in the swing of real life.

Daisy, yes there was a water park at the resort. Had 3 amazing slides for the older kids and adults. There was also a bunch of smaller stuff for the little kids! I didn't think WE would spend time there, I thought it was just be DD12....be we all did! Even my MOM!! Dad was there too, watching us all have fun. We all LOVED IT!

Carol, you are right. I am easing back into stuff. Not sure what is up, I still have some dull aches where I had issues while in Jamaica. I will watch it and head to the DR if there is no improvement. It isn't Horrible pain, just more a constant annoying ache.
