    Much like a shadow box. The scene behind the window or door is recessed 1/2 inch or so and it's a wonderful effect.

    I don't remember seeing carved Iguanas but I can absolutely check in there today.

    Monday 8/13

    Gym in the early morning, reserved the racquetball court for the kids, got the coffee from Dunkin. Kids went to the gym at 9 and I went to Price Smart to renew my membership and complete the food shopping.

    We did the afternoon Jolly Pirates tour and loved every second of it. I prefer the morning one - it's longer, more stops but this was good too. My boys were kinda bored with it. Mackenzie was amazed by everything she saw! I love that! JP is selling reusable sport top bottles for only $2 each to use instead of plastic cups - I love them!

    Came home to find mom had made Chicken Cacciatore & salad for dinner. YUM! So nice to come home to a home cooked meal. After cleaning up from dinner me, Rich & the 3 kids hung on the couch together watching old time stand up videos on Rich's phone - Ellen Degeneres, Bill Cosby, Eddie Murphy. Lots of laughs! Then played Phase 10 card game with them & my mom till we were too tired to keep our eyes open!

    Another awesome night in paradise!

    My laptop has been held hostage in the safe ALL MORNING! Poor thing

    Tuesday 8/14

    Mackenzie's last full day. At her request, we spent the day on the beach. The 3 kids took out the Big Mable float ride and had a great time. We came back to the pool for bingo & Michael won the full board - $164!

    Happy hour & pool time. I loved watching the watching them play together & with the kids they have met over the years.

    Dinner was at West Deck. We ordered everything and shared it. Keshi Yena, Funchi with Gouda, Garlic shrimp, Balashi Grouper Fingers, Coconut Shrimp, Caribbean bread basket, Ribs, a burger, Arashi Chicken (fried chicken breast with grilled pineapple and an amazing sauce), an order of ribs.

    Came back to have shakes & Ice cream from Cinnabon & Carvel then up to the room for a round of Rummy. Then laundry & packing Miss Kenzie up. A nice walk with her with some big thank yous and hugs & kisses. I've had such an amazing time with her! I'm so very proud of her for coming here with us!

    I am seeing your photos on FB and they are great.
    So, I read Monday's "Story " and all I saw was CHICKEN CACCIATORE.
    hahahhahahaha

    YUM!!!

    and then yesterday's "Story"
    that is great that they got to do the Big Mable and even more terrific that Michael won the $$$.
    this win is not his first at BINGO is it?
    I think that I remember seeing him holding a fistful of dollars before!

    I am glad that your Kenzie had a wonderful and extended vacation!

    When does Ms Brianna arrive?
