Roatan days 1 and 2

With alex away at grad school finding time to take a vacation together has been proving difficult.  So I final just gave up on the idea of going together and planed a vacation with the boys and invited the grandparents to join us.  In place of alex I brought my friend and babysitter Bobbi.  : )

So on the 11th we headed to DIA bright and early at 5am to start the trip.  The boys did really well on the plane I thought.  Neither had to large of fits and they both slept through most of the second flight.  Poor Bobbi was pretty nervous as this was her first experience to a really third world country. 

The house we rented was beautiful.  The owner lives in Alaska and rally has done a lot of great work on the house.   It is right on the beach And the reef is just about 100 yards out.  It even has a bar right in the beech!  The "toy" closest has everything we could need for the water!

Looking great Miss Bobbi!

Even Grandma went Paddle Boarding. 

The boys seem so happy playing in the water and sand.  This morning - our first full day here - Bobbi and matthew and I took the paddle boards we rented out.  We made a bit of a mistake and went out beyond the reef and I struggled to get back in with matthew sitting in between my legs.  I wreally got bit scared at one point but eventually with enough strength I made it in.  

In the afternoon the "girls" went for walk through west bay while the "boys" took a nap.  Tonight we hired blackie to come cook for is and she made the most amazing meal of fried coconut shrimp and lobster tails with fried plantains, rice and beens and veggies.  The coconut cream pie was super yummy!  Today was filled with tons of great memories.
