    Just got back from a mini walk which was a nice way to start the day. Got a great nice sleep- the AC in our bedroom worked amazing and I was actually pretty cold....which never happens on vacation, lol.

    Just sitting in the balcony which has a view of the beach! This place is pretty nice so far especially when you factor in the cost savings each day. Waiting for the boys to get up and we will do some breakfast before heading to the beach for the day.
    Trip 38 booked for Feb! Cant wait.

    Today we played on the beach for a long time! After lunch at Madero we decided to take the kids tubbing. We explained we did not want to be near other boat traffic and the driver was excellent!!!! It was suppose to be a 15 min ride but it felt more like 15 min each way. He zigged and zagged to give the kids a little trill while tubbing, down to the lighthouse and back to the Marriott area. Seeing the houses from the water down in Malmok was amazing!

    After tubbing and relaxing on the beach we came back around 4pm. T and myself jumped in our pool here at the condo. Very refreshing and very deep for an Aruba pool anyways. It was just over my wifes head so it probably was a bit over 5'6 deep or so.

    Back relaxing in the condo for a bit. Thinking about some pasta over at Casa Nonna later but things could change between now and then. No matter what we need to head over to the Ritz so I can deliver a computer for a friends son. Yes I am a delivery man at points. This trip I have a pair of sneakers for one friend, 2 wireless air pods for another friend, and the computer as well as mentioned for a 3rd friend lol.

    you are a mule! hahahahaha
    I love that you are able to bring stuff to your friends in AUA.
    We always bring stuff for our friend Janet and a couple of others.
    Usually small items that they order from Amazon and delivered to me, Paul and I in turn bring to them in AUA.
    What did me in was some bringing supplies (requested) and I barely knew the woman. It was jewelry making supplies and were quite heavy and bulky.
    We had no idea it would be the equivalent in size to a shoe box and 20+ lbs.
    Boy were we UNHAPPY.
    Then when I handed it to her she never said thanks.
    Never ever again!

    Sorry, for the rant.

    I love tubing, but I like to go slow.
    Glad the boys had fun and they are making some wonderful memories.
    You and t are so good to bring the boys there.

    Enjoy and keep posting.

    Haha- I bring stuff only for "family" and they are so appreciative. I too would lose my mind if someone did not appreciate our efforts...but that is thankfully something I don't have to worry about. Off to the Ritz for dinner my nephew requested to go back...okay twist my arm, lol.

    Thinking about gambling tonight but that might change depending on how long we stay at the Ritz...and the kids already requested to come back and swim at our condo now they know how deep it is.
