St Maarten/NYC

My parents took that shot of me flying into St. Maarten. Can you see me in the window?

Arriving at the airport.

Dad in the beautiful water!

Me on the beach. I can't get enough of it! I must have a home in the Caribbean some day!

Kissing in Times Square

Did some shopping in NYC!

I decided last minute to crash my parents trip to St. Maarten for a day. My goal while working with Jetblue is to go to all the Caribbean islands that they fly to, so I couldn't pass this chance up! My parents were there for a week so I flew down by myself on Wednesday night and got into St. Maarten on Thursday afternoon. My parents picked me up and we went straight to the beach. Another amazing beach. I could have spent all day there. That night we went to this tiny Italian restaurant. It was great food. We listened to some entertainment for a while, did some shopping and then went back to the hotel. The next morning we did the funnest thing. It was a ropes/zip line course. It was awesome. You had to do everything by yourself. You attach your own zip line, and all your safety straps. If you ever go to St. Maarten you must do it!! We flew out that afternoon and arrived into NY that evening. We took the Subway into the city and went to Times Square to find something for dinner. My dad really wanted to find this BBQ place called Virgils that he loved so we ate there. It was late after dinner so we went back to our hotel after that. The next morning we were SO SORE from the zip lines course. We had a hard time going down the stairs to the Subways! We just walked around Times Square until it was time to go back to the airport. It was a short trip but so worth it!

We took the kids to the circus last weekend. It was the kids first time going and they loved it...and so did I!
