    Very nice Jay! You did an outstanding planning job! How cool to meet someone from "the other site" and knowing what was going on with you all!

    Best wishes to you and your wife!

    Awesome Job Jay.... you can actually start your own business for other men to do the same for them.

    Okay, yesterday was a very nice day. We relaxed by the pool for bit, then I convinced my son it would be fun to play and build sand castles near the ocean. He actually bought in and LOVED it. He typically hates the sand but loved it yesterday, he also went into the ocean....two things he typically never does.

    My wife enjoyed a nice 75 min spa appointment yesterday. She had a combination facial, massage and reflexology and said it was the best one ever. Speaking of spa appointments, we got the most amazing gift from two of the wonderful ladies at the Ritz Kids. Maryanne and Ladi presented us with a very nice hand made card with a touching poem inside. In addition to that they scheduled us a couples massage for two for our 20 year anniversary! The staff here are just amazing with their kindness. We have made some of the best friends since we started coming here...these people are not workers to us, they are friends with an open invite to visit us in the States we care for them so much.

    Last night at the casino may have been my favorite losing day off all time. I played in a tournament with some of my Aruba friends and it was an absolute blast! After losing my money in record time last night, I spent the next 3 hours drinking with my Aruban friends on the house at the Hilton...drinks are free anyways when you gamble but I was not....still had plenty of drinks, I owe the ladies lots of tips today to make up for last night, lol.

    My son seems to have a little swimmers ear today so there will be no pool. The staff at the Ritz are in the process of trying to get drops for his ear, we should know soon.

    I love the pictures from your ceremony. Your wife looked beautiful and you are very handsome! The picture of your wife coming down the stairs with your son waiting for her is very touching. I hope that his swimmers ear clears up soon. My kids were very prone to that. I always took drops of alcohol and water to put in their ears after swimming. This dries out the ear canal. Now I buy it over the counter for my granddaughter. Of course, if your son already has swimmer's ear, this won't help, and would probably sting. I hope that he feels better quickly.

    sorry to hear that the casino was not generous with the $, but generous with drinks is pretty good.
    contact jacki at lacabana and ask about the ENT dr.
    her boys had swimmer's ear and brianne had tonsillitis.....they saw a good dr, for cheap $.

    hope he is feeling better soon.

    Thanks. The Ritz Club is working on a solution and probably already have it for us. My wife and son went to the Marriott to get child pain killer and a donut for my son, lol.
