Summer Vacation: Turks & Caicos

Another amazing family vacation. Every two years, Greg's family takes a combined vacation. In 2006, we ventured to Paris, followed by Outer Banks in 2008, Atlantis in 2010 and, this year, the location was Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean. Simply gorgeous location and fantastic weather. We were able to try new activities, including Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP), kayaking and the aqua cycle. Meg and I squeezed in the traditional core fusion yoga class at Exhale Spa in the Gansevoort resort, which was set against beautiful folage and a breathtaking view of the ocean. Our yoga instructor may have been one of the best we've ever experienced. We enjoyed two nights of family outdoor movies, ate way too much food, sampled too many drinks to name, and lounged non-stop in the pool. We are excited to see what 2014 brings!

View from our room. We had the amazing pleasure of waking up every morning to the sights and sounds of the ocean.

Lots of pool time. The Lazy River may have been one of my favorite lounging spots. Megan and I would float while Bridget tried to direct our floats toward the waterfalls so we'd be drenched. The waterslide was hands down Bridget's favorite and the pool bar (with a drinking age of 18) became Meg's favorite. Such fun!

The character breakfast was exciting for the kids. They got to meet and dance with Bert & Ernie, the Count, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Abby Cadaby and Zoe from Sesame Street.

Such a beautiful picture of the two cousins!

Love this picture of Greg and Kim.

Fun morning excursion on a submarine so that we could see all the ocean life. We saw huge starfish, sting ray, barracuda and some of the most colorful fish!

Meg getting ready to sweat during a very physical core fusion yoga class!

Can you believe the amazing backdrop of this location? Such a gorgeous sky and a trip that we will always remember!
