Antigua

For better or worse, we decided to leave our little pot of gold behind and take a weekend trip with just the two of us. We debated back and forth whether or not to go as we had never really left our Monkey behind — especially for 4 days. After lots of debates, tears, emotions, and anxiety, we both realized that this was our only chance to get away just the two of us before the storm hits (a.k.a. second baby), and so Antigua it was. Although we both missed our King Cruz more than anything, it was an incredible chance to be together and simply do n.o.t.h.i.n.g. I can’t remember the last time that I slept as much as I did, or just stared off into the distance without any real concerns…..not that we didn’t skype with Cruzzie 4 times a day and get 4 texts a day with information on how he ate, slept, etc…. but I was able to let go (a little) and just focus on us. As hard as it was, it was an absolute blast…and it’s not going to happen again for another 5 years….

Steve Jobs

Ken was engrossed with his book "Steve Jobs" the entire time. He found it inspirational, motivating, and captivating. I, too, read a great book -- "The Marriage Plot."

Resort

At our resort, each room was a little hut. It was a small and secluded area with only 25 rooms, so it was incredibly quiet, peaceful, and relaxing.

Beach

The water was as beautiful and clear as it looks in this photo.

View

The view from our lunch deck. Situated in a bay, lots of sailboats would dock overnight for the calm water.

Beach

The beach was a third grass, a third seashells, and a third sand.

Pool

The pool and bar area. Normally, I find myself situated at pools, but the beach was so close to everything that we parked there instead.

Chairs

Early morning beach view.

Boats

The water activity area, filled with kayaks, sailboats, jet skis, paddle boats, and snorkeling gear.

Bird

The only sounds you really ever heard were the rolls of the water, boats in the distance, and birds chirpping away. These birds were some aggressive Mo Fos, always attacking any food we had at our table.

Babers

Sleepy Ken getting his morning coffee ready!

Overall, a perfect and restful weekend. But MONKEY HERE WE COME! WE MISS AND LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH AND CAN’T WAIT TO BE REUNITED!!!!

Until Wednesday, Happy President’s Day!
