    Haven't posted an update in a couple of days. We've been having a blast during this trip. The time spent with our grandkids has been priceless. Be it at the pool, the beach, restaurants or just hanging out in our villa it has been worth every minute of the family trip. Some of the highlights:
    - My new Grandson Dylan, loves the water! we've been in the ocean, the pool and today in the lazy river with him and his parents and Ann and I.
    - My granddaughters just love their little cousin. They want to be around him all the time and are in our villa constantly wanting to spend time with their cousin.
    - My oldest granddaughter Emory won Bingo by the pool the other day. She won $50! We asked her if she was going to take us out to dinner but she said NO! LOL
    - Emory also won the hula hoop contest here at the surf club. I wasn't there at the time and only saw a video of her competing but before the result was even known, I predicted she would win. she is the best at hula hoop and can go on endlessly. of course she easily outlasted all of her opponents. She won a t-shirt.
    - The kids have been having a great time at the evening kids club a couple of nights, allowing the adults (and baby Dylan) to dine out at some nice places without them.
    - My younger granddaughter, Sienna, who had never gone done the water slide before this trip is now a demon on the slide and wants to go there every day. We've been taking turns taking her to the slide.

    Sunday will be our last full day here as we have an early PM flight home on Monday. Who would have thought that by coming to Aruba in July, we would enjoy beautiful temperate weather compared to the absolute HEAT WAVE going on in the NY/ NJ area this week. We are grateful to be here.

    The casino has not been kind to me and tonight was my last attempt to try to make some money back. It didn't work out, but I had fun and I didn't lose that much in the overall scheme of things.

    Dining out has been good with some excellent meals and enjoyable service and experiences. I will write more about a couple of them in the culinary section, including our dinner tonight at Lobby, which was excellent. Tomorrow night we are going to Casa Nonna at the Ritz Carlton.

    Great trip as always and we will be planning our return for next year as soon as we get home this week.

    Thanks for sharing your past couple of days and your entire trip. A win at pool bingo is always a highlight, admittedly it's the only "gambling" we do It must be a real treat having so much family around and sounds like the logistics of so many people isn't an issue. Enjoy your last full day and safe, easy travels tomorrow.
