st. kitts day 1.

so our incredible gracious friends invited us to vacation with them in the caribbean.
how could we turn that down?
warm weather, beaches, palm trees...oh my.
and after all, our passports were feeling a bit neglected.

so we packed up the suitcases, hopped on a plane, and flew to meet them in dallas.
amazingly enough the airline managed to lose craig's golf clubs on a 45 min flight.
they finally arrived at tonya & sean's house at 2 in the morning...an hour before we were leaving to go back to the airport.
 2 more flights later and we could finally see our little island paradise.
the first time i saw it from the air, i had a little * LOST* flashback...
umm hello? smoke monster!

this was the first time i had been someplace where they drive on the left hand side of the road.
it took some time to get used to...they have some pretty crazy taxi drivers.
this is the resort we called home for the week...
i could totally live here full time.
check out our casa for the week.
this was the view from our balcony.
the ocean, palm trees, the beach....i nearly fainted. 
it was a tad windy when we arrived, the back side of hurricane thomas was passing through.
he thankfully didn't give us much trouble, only an occasional rain now and then.
nothing to dampen our fabulous week.

by the time we got settled in and  tonya and i had gone to the grocery store, (which was quite an adventure in itself)  it was dark, so we went to dinner and strolled around the pool and beach area, planning our to do list for the next day...
stay tuned...
