ARUBA! "One Happy Island"

Happy 10 year anniversary to us!!  Oh didn't we want to "stay there a little while!"  We savored everyday and it was one word.... AMAZING!!!!!  Had the best time with the love of my life!  So thankful to my sweet mama for coming and holding down the fort in Texas!  :)  The kids did great and we couldn't have been more relaxed!  Looking at this pictures just makes me want to cry because it was so awesome!  So here is my brag post :)!  Ha!  Hope everyone is doing great!  We are great!  Officially tan and ready for SUMMA
This was looking straight down from our balcony at the waterfalls and you can see part of the pool here.
Another one with the ocean in the pic
And the ocean :)
Posing on the bed.... we ended up getting two queens instead of a king.... but who needs a king when you are in love?????  :)
On our balcony when we first got there....giddy!
Went to the beach and watched the sun set.... awwwww Aruba!
Are we really in another country??? 
Life is good :)
We took a ton of this boat with the sun setting... so gorgeous!
Picture perfect
Gotta do a black and white
on a catamaran for our snorkling fun!!
boat ride to the catamaran
We could take a thousand pics of the gorgeous water!
Oh hApPy DaY
Nathan took a pic of me taking a pic for another couple b/c he thought I looked funny in my flippers :)
The Beach
Gotta stay hydrated :)
I cannot remember what this drink was called but it was my FAV!  It was so refreshing and slushy... had a hint of ice cream taste to it! YUM!  I had one almost everyday! :)

Nate found a starfish in the ocean

This is Hermana.  The H is silent.  She was so funny!  She got our chairs and hut reserved for us everyday.
Happy Girl!

Strawberry Mango Tangerita..... virgin please
Dinner time
Another dinner night
This was made out of beer bottles.  It looked like a huge chandelier.  The beer is called "Bright"
Me trying and LOVING sushi rolls for the first time!  Yes I am they are not raw. 
 This waterfall in the pool gave a great back massage!  Look at my happy husband :)
 So refreshing!
 Yes... these iguanas were EVERYWHERE!  By the pool that is and they would walk under people's lounge chairs!
I embarrassed Nate by getting pic made with one of these dancers that were about to go in the casino.  There were several of them and their costumes were so colorful!
Not a great pic of us but check out the gigantic brownie sundae we shared :)
I have never been to a casino... sat down at my first slot machine and put $10 in it and won $40!  Nate couldn't believe I kept winning!  :)  But that got old.. ha!
This would be me sliding our room key in the elevator so it would go to the 8th floor where all of the "Tradewinds Club" people were!  We were treated quite special!  :)

 The beautiful pink sky
 Our last night... dinner at sunset on the beach!  Our favorite and most special night! 
 I love this man!
 About to head out.... sad to leave this beautiful place!
 Nate is even holding on a bit by wearing his Aruba tshirt that when it gets in the bright light the whole picture has color... it is so cool!
We Love ARUBA!
Happy 10 Year Anniversary to US!  We will never forget it!  AMAZING!
We did stay for a "little" while but we can't "make forever feel this way" ...because reality says we got three kids to go home to and another one to prepare for in 6mths!!  :)  But it was fun while it lasted!
