    Sunday 8/16

    Wow time is going fast!

    Woke up early and finished a book sitting in the bathroom so I didn't disturb anyone. Got dressed went to the lobby to see what room number I was getting (not moving, but an additional room). I had requested to be near my current room. Shocked to find out the room was ready and I was able to check in at 8am! I went & got towels and put them in the room that is right down the corridor from my current one

    Everyone met for breakfast buffet at the Islander Grill and then up to their rooms for money & car keys. We decided to head over to Alhambra & the little shops over there. We took turns staying outside with the boys shopping & getting them Gelato. I lost $30, hubby won $280, Brianna won $145 her BF lost $50 - not sure about my parents. Pretty good day there. Then went to Super Food to stock the new room and came back to relax for a lot longer than we realized. Everyone just needed a little down time I think. Went to the pool around 4:30 - had to get Happy Hour in! Got pizza from Sbarro and stayed there till 8ish - so nice and breezy and great family time. Brianna came down a few times - she went over to Pizza Bob at the Trop - she loved their pizza last time we had it and isn't really a Sbarro chick and definitely not someone who enjoys things we can get in the states while in Aruba. She & Marco had plans to go to Moomba and they left around 9:30 while the rest of us were getting ready for bed!

    sounds about right.............you folks got your down time (aka crashed) almost the midway of the trip.

    was there "no bingo" yesterday poolside? how did you tear them away from poolside bingo for an alhambra trip?

    thanks so much for continuing to share.

    Thanks for another great report. Love reading them.

    Do you guys go also on the beach to swim in the ocean? Or are you mainly in the pool?

    Have fun and enjoy Aruba!
