    Yes - baby will actually appreciate the trip this time... and my wife will get to appreciate some Amstel Brights... She gave me the stink eye, everytime I cracked one open last trip! haha


    The app is called "Big Day Lite" - you can put your own picture into the countdown. I think there is a paid version too - where you can have more than one countdown at a time.

    1 week and counting

    Down to 1 week before we hit the Island again. We have been going to Aruba since 2001, right before 9/11. We own at the Marriott Ocean club. We always go in a couple days early and use points to stay at the marina at the Renaissance Aruba to "prep"...lol before we check into the Ocean club for our week. I will make sure to post trip updates, restaurant reviews..etc for our trip.

    We will hit our usual fav's of MJ's and Flying Fishbone in addition to Salt and Pepper for breakfast. We do love the Marriott property's grouper/red snapper fish sandwiches for lunch.

    We love the walk from the Marriott to the mall/restaurant area at Palm Beach. We always use the 1st couple of days downtown to do all the shopping and downtown stuff before we check into the timeshare. Then we usually stay local at the Palm Beach area ...do our Mj's and Flying Fishbone visits since we have the car. The car is a great addition as you can go to the grocery store and get beer, and other critical supplies as needed.

    This year we are taking extra care to pack condiments, snacks and such to minimize grocery shopping. I am packing a few plastic rum/vodka and going to try a cabernet wine box too....all carefully in a large ziplock back and wrapped in bubble wrap. This should help to keep grocery purchases to key essentials such as eggs, ham/meat and cheeses ...as well as some breads and butter.

    More to come as we get closer ...thanks all!

    Brad
