    Trip 31 live report 6/29-7/13

    Well it is almost time for trip 31 to start. My bags are packed and I will be taking the dogs to the vet in the next couple of hours. We will be back at the Boardwalk. It has become our home away from home. "Our" room is not available for the entire stay so we are tying a new room out for the 1st 3 nights then moving back to our spot, lol. All the rooms at the Boardwalk are unique so it will be interesting to see how we enjoy this one- we love our other spot and look forward to returning there on Tuesday.

    This trip will be all about relaxing, well at least for the parents, lol. Our son will be doing his 1st international soccer camp in Aruba this trip. Pec Zwolle is Dutch pro team from the Netherlands and they are sending their academy coaches to run the camp. I extended our trip just so CJ could attend this camp. Yes we are a crazy soccer family and this is something that he will never forget and neither will we.

    I can't wait to be relaxing on the beach tomorrow. May the next 24 hours fly by.

    I am so looking forward to your report and hearing of CJs soccer experience.
    Would you also post photos of the renovations and construction at the Boardwalk.

    Safe and easy travels Jay and family.

    Will do. I am interested to see what updates they have done. I will be honest other than a paint touch-up and maybe a new TV I am not sure what they will have done as far as updates in our room but I am excited to find out.

    I do know that they did one sort of major construction/refurbishment in May.
    The main entrance was closed and the place was loaded with workers.

    They closed in May in order to update the preexisting rooms/pool area. I just got off the phone with one of our good friends in Aruba as we just finished setting up some plans for next week to see his new house and have a cookout over at his place. I will do more social things in Aruba over the next 2 weeks than I will do in another 4 months here, lol.

    Quick update before we head back to the beach. We arrived at our hotel by 1pm after landing a few minutes early and running to Superfood to get us some food/drinks. I will detail today, later back to the beach we go.
