It has been a while since my New Years blog and lots has happened in the meantime. The most exciting thing however, was our recent trip to Jamaica.
What started as a complete nightmare (thanks to security check ups at the airport, changing planes and endless bus journeys to our final destination), turned out to be a really wonderful holiday. Unfortunately Finley's teeth decided to come through exactly that week and at the beginning of the week, I felt like I was being tortured. Sleep, wake, sleep, wake...crying, clinging...and, and, and!
Stephen, Pat and Peter were really great though and made sure I got the occasional break from the tooth monster. We were really sad to leave on Monday, as the place really grew on us and as we had one last swim in the ocean we prepared ourselves for an equally horrifying trip back to Washington.

Finley loved swimming in the pool and the ocean and I have never seen him happier. It was just the nights when the troubles started.
The place was small and we got to know lots of people, unfortunately there is a lot of crime and poverty in Jamaica so we never really left the hotel complex apart from one trip to the waterfalls and to buy some rum!!??.

We all got a bit of a suntan, apart from Finley who was heavily protected by sunsreen and hats and clothing. At least he provided a nice white contrast on the photos, which made me look a lot more tanned;-)))
