We spent the entire week laying out and eating, pretty much. Our two condos were right next door to each other. The boys played xbox or wii while the girls tanned. We spent hours reading (I started and finished three books in that one week), getting in the ocean, and playing Frisbee (the boys) every afternoon. One morning we all ate a scrumptious breakfast the guys made. A few nights we went out to dinner and the other nights we cooked in and all ate together on the balcony over looking the ocean. We played games at night, watched New Girl, or shopped. It really was so laid back and chill, exactly what we all needed. We are so thankful our friends invited us along. We got an insanely good deal on the condos since they belonged to relatives of one of the couples. I wish the week could have lasted longer. I mean, I missed C like crazy and was soooooo ready to get home to him, but it was also so so so nice to be able to just chill with husband and focus on each other for a week. It's so crucial for us to keep each other as our second priority (Christ being first) and weeks like this are such a huge help in refocusing our attention.
And now a million crappy iphone photos because I was on vacation and didn't want to play photographer all week long. Well, I did make an exception and do a mini session for each couple our last night. Our maternity pictures are in the last post, but you can see the other three couples here, here, and here.
