Tanned and tired

After some extremely long airport delays yesterday we're finally home from our wonderful two weeks in Aruba. It was a great trip but exhausting to say the least. I had a bit of a chest cold during the week before heading down to Aruba and I thought that after a few days on the beach, the sun would bake it out of me. But alas, here it is three weeks later and I'm still coughing up a lung even after completing two z-packs and chugging down more cough meds than I care to admit. Maisie too has been on meds as she's been coughing and sick, in addition her two lower 2-year molars decided to finally erupt whilst in Aruba. Needless to say we're both heading to the doctor tomorrow.

I can't believe how few pictures I took. I had such good intentions of taking lots and lots of pics but between being sick and chasing Maisie around, the picture taking just fell short. Trust me though when I say that Maisie had a blast on the beach, loved being in the ocean, taking walks along the beach, making mad dashes to the massage area, playing on the swings and slide, washing herself at the outdoor shower area, visiting with everyone on the beach, spending lots of time with her grandparents, charming everyone on the beach and just having a great beach vacation. We're looking forward to next December in Aruba and seeing all our friends again but for now it's great to be home.
