Puerto Rico – Part I

We had an awesome week in Puerto Rico with the kids and the rest of the extended Silverman family.  We made the most of each day and got a sitter for just about every night so we could enjoy some down time as well!

We had an early morning flight…Benji was not thrilled to wake up.  Joey, on the other hand, was SO excited to wake up and get on the plane…

The airplane ride was certainly not fun (Benji was a non-stop bundle of energy), but we made it!

The 4 TVs were not enough to entertain Boo…

All smiles 🙂

We got right in the pool on Day 1!

We had a casual first night with the kids and ate by the ocean…

Day 2 was a pool day in PARADISE!

Dinner Night #3 was for the kids…We took them to an imitation Ron of Japan (that just didn’t come close) but the kids LOVED it!! We promised Joey we’d plan a date to Ron Jon very soon!

The boys escaped one morning and rented a boat for a 1/2 day fishing trip…

On New Years Eve day we checked out the water park.  Joey didn’t love the slides, but loved running back and forth across the wobbly bridge.

Benji, shockingly, LOVED the water slide.  He’s way too young for it but did everything he could to try and go on it solo…

All dressed up with no where to go!  We decided to keep the kids in with a sitter while we went out for a special dinner.  Little did we know how much we had to celebrate…

Abby and Alex came by the room just as we were heading out…to let us know they were engaged!  We’re super excited to begin the wedding planning yet again!

After dinner at a steakhouse, we watched fireworks as we rang in the New Year!  Happy, healthy to all of our friends and family!

What could be so exciting…?  Zebo and Pacman at Doggy Daycare, of course!

Wrong Sport…

Princess Sopharella and her crew finally arrived on New Years Day!

About halfway through the 1st week, Benji came down with an unexplained fever…Although he didn’t feel great, he was a trooper (and super cuddly!)

Abby, Alex, Cari & Greg took Joey to the beach the next morning while I stayed back with Boo…

Joey’s favorite part of the whole day was the boat ride.  He wasn’t a huge fan of the waves and kept asking Greg to turn them off…

Vinnie learned the hard way that having a boy is WAY different than having a daughter…

Getting more comfortable in the water…

We decided vacation was the perfect time to teach Benji how to use a spoon (so we wouldn’t have to clean up his mess).  He still has a ways to go….

I caught an adorable moment on camera…Joey said to Greg with such excitement “Dad, I can swim!”

Bad parenting decision #1

Bad parenting decision #2 (To be fair…we thought with Vinnie’s added height, we’d be able to keep Joey above water)

Bumper Boats!
