A great spring break

Last week was spring break, and we were lucky enough to be able to join Bill's family on a trip to their favorite vacation spot, St. John in the USVI. Unfortunately, our trip started out with major flight drama. Let me just take a minute to publicly bad mouth Delta airlines for overselling all their flights. They bumped half of our group off our flight, leaving us no choice but to drive from Moline to Chicago, buy our own hotel room, buy new tickets out of Midway airport and leave the next morning, losing a whole day of our vacation. Blah. Anyway, once we got there it was wonderful, great weather, lovely scenery, fun wildlife...
... and of course, the adorable company of this 10 1/2 month old cutie pie! He had a great time watching and playing with his cousins. He loved splashing in the pool, but wasn't too sure about the ocean and beach. I think his favorite part was sitting in the high chair at dinner and getting little tastes of what we were having. Lots of good family time and memories, but it always feels nice to come home again.


  1. Cute! What did L think of the iguanas?

  2. I don't think he actually noticed any of the iguanas, they move pretty slow...

  3. It looks like you had a wonderful time! So sorry to hear about the troubles getting there!
