The Aruban babymoon was a success. Success to me, has something to do with palm trees, family, the beach, and a virgin strawberry margarita. Well, that's how I measured success last week, atleast.
My husband, never one to pass up a competition of any sort, won himself a massage at the spa. He wins everything, really. It's absurd. These drunkies had been trying for over an hour to win this game, and JR walked up and beat them all. I was a proud pregnant wife playing photographer in the midst of drunk overly-tanned men, lavished in gold chains and mixed drinks.
We spent our afternoons sunning the belly, with our toes in the sand, and a good book. Left Behind dominated my week, albeit, a decade after you've likely read it.
Daddy read this, and a very informative read it is. GREAT recommendation for any daddy-to-be. I thought he was a good-looking friend, a hot boyfriend, an even hotter husband, but being the daddy to my sweet tiny surpasses all. Eesh. I love him.
The view from our room alone was worth the trip, waking up to a blue ocean and some boats is a kind of relaxing that you can get nowhere else but the beach.
That is until, you hear the music that goes to this...
No need for description. This is what we so desperately came in search of.
The future grandparents we must thank for such an amazing trip.
We made our way around the island one day, stopping at The Natural Bridge. A bridge on the edge of the island, completely natural with breathtaking views and crashing waves.
Hudson too, got a view.
We were able to get away, at just the right time. In the midst of moves, babies, phone calls, emails...life. A break. A much much needed break. You don't have to go Aruba to get this, go to your favorite place in the world or stay in for a few days with your husband/family/whomever and just be. A babymoon I recommend to all mommy and daddies to-be.
It's down to 11 weeks until the arrival of our sweet tiny. We plan on soaking up our last couple of months of JR & Nat, because before we know it...our family will be JR, Nat, & Hudson ♥
