Cayman Islands

It has been a while since the entire Londry family went on a vacation so this trip was very much overdue!  We got together a few months ago and voted on the destination and all settled on Cayman Islands!  We arrived Wednesday and immediately hit the beach.
 We ordered our first of many fish tacos and played in the sand.

 That night we went to Morgan's Seafood restaurant.  The food was good, drinks were delicious and we had the perfect outdoor table to watch the sunset.

 Catherine and I split two meals because we couldn't decide, but we both agreed the shrimp was the best!  It was not only the size of a lobster, I swear it tasted like it too!

 The second day we played in the ocean and drank pina coladas by the pool.

 The kids loved having lunch by the pool most afternoons.

That night we went to Eric Rupert's restaurant Blue.  This was a fancy night out!

I can not tell you how proud I was of our kids during this trip, but dinners especially!  We were at this dinner for over 3 hours and never once did they whine, complain or run around.  The sat nicely and ate like adults!  They tried everything from ceviche, grilled octopus and soups to fish and steak!
 Ellie was thrilled when they brought her a plate of blue cheese for her steak!
 Ellie is a little foodie just like her Aunt!
We got home very late so they twins slept in the next morning.
We spent this day just the four of us at the Turtle Farm on the island.  We were basically the only people there for the few hours we visited and had such an amazing experience.

 There was a large area where you could actually snorkel with the turtles.   Bobo was so sweet and gentle with the turtles and sat in one area slowly feeding them for the longest time.
 Ellie amazed us and caught on to snorkeling fast.  We have used snorkels a lot but never for more than a quick look.  She would keep her head under for 10 min and talk to Ryan through the mouth piece!

There was a restaurant down the street right on the water where we ate lunch.  Nothing can beat a tropical cocktail, spectacular view and yummy food!
The kids took long naps and woke up for some kayaking and paddle board rides.

We went to a small quaint Mexican Restaurant, Casa 43, for dinner that still makes me drool every time I think about the food we ate!

On our last day we spent a lot of time in the pool and ocean.  We took long walks and played in the sun!

 At night we met at the hotel beach bar for a quick bite.  The sunset was so pretty!

 We promised the kids we would go swimming at night on the last night and they could not have had a better time!  Lots of organized jumps and cannon balls!
On our last morning we built sandcastles and collected shells on the beach before enjoying one last lunch at the beach bar.

We were sad to see this week come to an end, but we look forward to all the vacations we have coming up!!!
