7/8/2010 - Kids!

One of the hardest parts about traveling with a child is finding other children for them to play with.  We’ve found a few kids here and there but all of them have been significantly older than Jake and didn’t have a lot in common.  So imagine how happy he was when he met his new friend Savannah (aka ‘Boo’) who just turned six a few months ago!  We altered our plans a bit to spend a few days so Jake and Boo could play together.  Conveniently, Andy also found someone to spearfish with and I found someone to share much needed girl time with.  In the last few days Jake has gotten to swim at the beach, watch movies, do crafts and even eat pancakes on Boo’s boat.  Andy has gotten to spearfish, dive, and act manly with another manly man.  I have gotten to hang out on the beach, get a ‘spa treatment’ complete with sand exfoliation, exchange recipes and gossip (oh yeah, I got to dive too).  This may not sound like all that big of a deal but in reality, it’s very hard to find another boat that suits all of us at the same time.  Needless to say we had a very nice time the past few days with Savannah, Kimberly, Sarah and Elias.  Unfortunately, we are headed in different directions so today we had to say goodbye.  Elias even got up early to spear us a "goodbye fish."  We sincerely hope we meet up with them again along the way.
