Highlights ...

Our trip to St. Lucia was FANTASTIC!!!! We had awesome accommodations, terrific travelling companions, stellar weatherone VERY happy littlegirl, and even some time to relax!
St. Lucia would have to be one of the most beautiful places we have visited so far. The landscape is something to behold and the lushness is truly exquisite.
Unlike other vacations, this particular resort was only at 35% capacity which meant we could sleep in and still grab a lounge chair ... ANYWHERE! Although we didn't have to fight for chairs, bookings or beverages there were a few drawbacks to the limited capacity ... very few organized activities for the kiddies among the most significant. Not a big deal, but it certainly was something we thought could have added to our stay.
Cadence was an excellent little traveller! On our initial take off, she turned to me, clenched her fists and said, "Mom, I'm so excited!" ... my heart grew just that much bigger in that moment! She made a few friends at the resort, attracted a great deal of attention and solidified her 'party girl' status. Each evening we took her to the Piton Lounge for 'the show' where she danced, sang or was simply mesmerized by dancers. And every time we mentioned it was time to go she would argue, "No, the band's not done yet!". We have some boundaries to set!
And to top off a great week of fun and frolicking, our girl even managed to wake up dry each and every day .... yay!!!!!
Photos and more detailed anecdotes to follow ....
