Sorry I've been MIA! I have had the WORSE COLD since coming home :(
The trip was so lovely. It really is so hard for Chris and I to connect these days. When we first got married it was all fun dates, romance, etc. Now it is poopy diapers, demanding work, piles of laundry, crying babies, and long sleepless nights. Don't get me wrong we still do dates and flowers but it is hard. It is hard to connect sometimes and just sit and talk. We are trying but it doesn't come easily. We do a childless trip each year. They are normally not this exotic (one year we did Boulder City in a No Tell Motel) b/c it helps us reconnect.
We did reconnect. It was cute b/c people kept asking us how the wedding was and thought we were newlyweds. So far a few days being home we are trying to make that time to talk about non-kids and non-work topics and do a lot more kissing!

The actual trip itself was so lovely. We got upgraded for free to an oceanside room and despite some lost luggage the first night everything went well. My family is Puerto Rican so it meant so much to see where my Mom was from. We even visited her childhood home! We saw an MLB game, got messed up w/a riot at the capital, and visited a Rain Forest. It was hard at times for me to get around b/c of my RA but Chris was always patient. The best part was sleeping in though and laying on the beach. Chris speaks much better Spanish than I and since I am part Puerto Rican the locals quickly adopted us. It was so neat to really learn so much about my culture and it makes both of us determined to raise our kids w/it. I want to start cooking more of the native foods (rather than nightly Bertolli or DiGiorno... heck we are not even Italian) and Chris is learning Salsa dancing at the local Puerto Rican dances with me. At this rate we are going to raise some little Borinquenos yet!!!!
