The Islands, A Preview

Gecko, held by Headless Boy 1, caught by Dad.
Sunset on our first night. (This has actually been the best sunset of our whole stay.) This is our view off of our back patio. Sucks to be us, right?
We all got henna tattoos on our second day. Headless Girl's turned out really awesome. Well, her perfect 17 year old figure probably has something to do with it, too.
This is the 200 lb. Marlin that Headless Dad caught on Monday. We spent the morning fishing: 6 bites, 4 hook ups, and landed this one. Not to mention the 4, 10lb. tunas that we caught for bait. (Your husbands will be impressed. I promise.) The captain said that it was the best day of the year so far. Definitely worth the money.

Yes, don't the bodies of our young daughters make you sick? My Steph is like that too. Even after she had Ethen, she was back in her size 6 jeans a few months later. I wore a size 6 in kindergarten. I know I will never see that number on the tags of my clothes EVER again!
Beautiful vacation pictures!

WOW! DJ would LOVE to catch a marlin like that.

And you totally should have taken credit for the henna tattoo body. I would have believed it. Especially after seeing how awesome your arms look.

Come back SOON! Please? KThanks.

Oh....and keep having FUN and have a mai tai for me. Preferably before noon.

Jealous much? Yes, I am. Amazing pics - I'm glad you guys are having a blast!

Love HG's Tat! - BabyAm would love one. I can't wait to show her!

And the fishing...just the experience sounds like it was worth the money, and the fish are the bonus!

...oh, and the little gecko guy...are you gonna bring him home? :) I totally would, he's a cutie!

Wow. It looks like you guys are having an amazing time. My boys would have gone crazy over that gecko.

Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Wow- you are lucky to have caught a marlin. Lots of people do those excursions and never land one. Your hubby must be quite the fisherman.

Hey btw- we are having another contest. Stop by and see if you can guess how many.
