Boy howdy how time flies

Don't you agree? One minute it's Monday, the next its Friday. One minute you had a baby, the next he's saying "shoe".  There are times it really creeps by, but for the most part it flies, and I'm not so sure I like it.

Here's a little iPhone pic to get us started, I found them like this watching TV. Little loves.

Last month Mom and Dad took us on a lavish vacation to the Paradisus Palma Real resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Correctamundo, the same place we went on our honeymoon FIVE years before, to the date! We celebrated our anniversary there and it was so wonderful.
Here we are at Gabi Beach restaurant 5 years ago...

And here we are at Gabi a month ago on our anniversary! We look pretty good, right?! :-)

We opted for the family concierge package at the resort and boy were we glad we did. The boys got the coolest amenities and special treatment from Mayra, our concierge. One of which was these cool matching swim shirts.

Here's Daddy and Bear (short for Penny-Bear, which Daddy nicknamed him) by our cabana at the pool.
They had these lovely oversized swings you see below right by the pool, the very spot that Bear napped every morning.

The sun really took a lot out of him, so we also had a good long beach nap.

This is a little Russian girl named Anya, who Pollard became wildly obsessed with and madly in love with.  Ok maybe it's a tiny exaggeration but you get the point. Puppy love, if you will.  Too bad Anya spoke not a lick of English and was mean as a snake. He  followed her around for 2 days straight, which ended in Anya pushing his head completely under the pool water, throwing his beach toys in his face and yelling in Russian, all while wearing nothing but a bikini bottom. Ah, young love.

The night setting on my camera can be so fun, but also a wee blurry. Which was good this night because we were all sweating profusely! Right behind this lovely body of water is where we stayed 5 years ago in Royal Service!

Papa and Penn hamming around.

This fountain was the source of a lot of trouble. I don't know why a family friendly resort would have a flowing body of water with child-sized rocks below it....LIKE my kid isn't gonna hurl as many as possible in the fountain EVERY time we walk by...

Penn learned to mimic our faces. Hilarious.

This is pretty much how our attempt at group photos went...

 Big brother and little sister :)

Thanks to Mom and Dad for making that trip possible. We had the BEST TIME EVER!!!
