Seaside Dinner

Seaside Dinner

Well, it’s over.  At least for Andi, Tanner and I.

And compared to how it all started on December 31st of 2011 with our grand entrance, our exodus form the island (which is taking place in stages), is feeling a bit anticlimactic.

But let’s not dwell on that!  I just enjoyed a fantastic eight days on the island with the girls, and I want to focus on that instead.

On Sunday, June 16th, I flew down to St. Martin for what would be my last and final trip to the island (at least as a semi-resident).  Andi had finished school at Learning Unlimited and was ready to come back home, but she didn’t want to fly internationally alone.  She’d done that once already for a medical trips, and did NOT want to do it again.  I don’t blame her.

I was there for 8 days, and to maximize the time with the girls, I took vacation days from work so we could play, relax and enjoy each other’s company.

Tanner opted out of this trip. In his own words, “I’m done with the island.”  Plus, it was right smack in the middle of little league season, and he would have missed six games had he come with.  MANY thanks to the Anderson’s, the Beard’s and Coach Todd for all the help while I was gone.

The trip was a splendid success in every way possible way.  But instead of boring you with lots of talk, I’ll let the photos do most of the sharing. Read the rest of this entry »

Cari's mom, her mom's two sisters, and her mom's mom

Cari’s mom (in the middle), her mom’s two sisters (Dianne on the left and Sue on the right), and her mom’s mom, Grandma May.

What with being a solo dad and all, I have fallen woefully behind in keeping this blog up to date.  So, for this post, I’m going to keep typing to a minimum and pictures to a maximum.

A few months back, the girls down on the island received a visit from four fantastic ladies: Cari’s mom, two aunts, and grandma.  From what I hear, it was a wild, crazy and fun visit filled with good times and laughter.

All of these photos are “borrowed” from Michelle’s blog, and if you’d like to learn more about the awesome visit from Grandma, aunts, and Great Grandma, feel free to surf on over and check it out!
