    Rob O and Cindy O in Aruba April 9 to 23

    April 10.....end of our first full day. A quick summary:

    Everyone is doing great. So far....our group is at 16 persons, with 6 more to come on Tuesday.

    After grocery shopping, spent most of the day on Renaissance Island. Had a rare downpour for 10 minutes, then it cleared up nicely.

    Met many of out Renaissance friends....Melushka...Vanie....Georges....Chico.

    Bully drove the four of us to Marandi for sunset dining. We enjoyed the grouper, it was very well prepared. We hadn't been there for two years and had forgotten what a beautiful setting it was. We would recommend Marandi.

    Donated $30 to casino. Other than that...a great start to the trip.

    Greetings from cindy...who can't remember her password to get into my own acct....

    Here's my take n the vaca so far...AA # 1013 was perfect and early. No issues, no crying kids..outstanding.
    I will say the customs agent upon our arrival needed an attitude adjustment. Nasty, unfriendly, we never heard," Welcome back"...Hmm, whats up with that?? We arrived in HER line all smiles and happy, left sayings " unfriendly B****.
    Private island is as perfect as ever, so our all of our friends who work here.
    Bully has driven us twice, always happy to see his happy face. His son was with him who loves to give us a high 5. Mirandi was great...had grouper Mirandi, tender, melt in your mouth fish with mousse of scallops and something else. Also had the warm goat cheese salad...that was outstanding..would have eatten 5 of those salads !! Had my fav wine, RELAX reisling so that made me really happy. Got some great photo's. Staff was attentive, took pics for us...couldn't have asked for more. Mirandi A+.
    Been to the casino at the seaport twice, didn't know my parents loved the casino that much. My dad had a great run with 5.oo card they give ya at check in.
    Todays plans are private island, Renn marina towerpool in the afternoon and dinner at Casa Tua downtown.
    On another note, daughter #2 had 2 boys text her b4 we got on our flight, so, heartbreak hotel here might not be as bad as I had thought....hmmm...tough being a moma tiger !
    Bon Bini, will write later...cindyo

    Us moms live and breath through our kids every up and down moment! Been there - done that so many times. Not so much with relationships as I have boys, but with sports disappointments. Ugg! Glad things are looking for daughter! Try to relax Cindy O...as my mom always said to me....this too will pass!! Loving the trip updates - miss paradise so much and I've only been home a few weeks!!! We weren't greeted very warmly either - I was waiting for the welcome back too! But I was just happy to fly thru customs the day we arrived and be on the beach less than an hour after landing!!

    Can't wait headed there on April 21. Let us know if you go on Midushi or Pirate to go snorkel. I have been on Midushi 4 times but never Jolly Pirate, wondering if I am missing anything. If you go book online for a discount. Enjoy
