    . . .jump in and saved her and her bottle even though it was shallow enough to stand up in! The crowd of people rushed over to help, but there was nothing to do except to hide the scene from the kids so they would not see their grandmother who looked like a drunken, drowned rat. With her it is always something. Then . . .

    (we decided to leave her there and I threw in a plugged in toaster.....oh, sorry my imagination was making me think about my MIL.)

    So, we all stood there wet and unhappy, the general manager of the resort came over and told us that we had exactly 10 minutes to pay our bill and leave there property...So, we all dripped off a bit, made up a cover up lie to the kids about their lush grandma, paid the bill and off we went in Bully's taxi.......

    ... to drop off my FIL and MIL at their resort. He can deal with getting her out of her wet clothes and into bed to sleep it off. If I was him, I'd drop her into a lounge chair just the way she is-a drunken, beached whale. They are on their own for dinner. So much for babysitters. Then we . . . .

    Good Morning! It is beautiful and sunny today, although it started off with a rain shower and was followed by a beautiful, bright double rainbow over the ocean! The kids were so excited and took lots of pictures. Well, we are head to Linda's for some Dutch pancakes . . . .

    Now the kids are begging that we adopt the mommy dog and her puppies.
    Instead we contact ARF (Animal relief Aruba) and they make a plan to take the dogs to the vet and then will be put up for adoption once there is health clearance.

    Linda's pancakes were delicious. We all had different varieties.......dutch pancakes with strawberries, with bacon , with ham and gouda, plain with powdered sugar.

    We finished our breakfast and headed off to Moomba Beach area and to board the Jolly Pirates.
    There, we met up with my husband's parents.......hooray mommy dearest was sober!
