greetings from punta cana

well, hey there. we are in the dominican, frying our white bodies. the one bottle of aloe we brought is NOT enough. guess i should have tried to get some sort of base tan at home before we left. oh well. um, it feels weird blogging internationally - its like when you call everyday at home you just chat about nothing but when you call everyday on vaca you feel obligated to chat about the weather, and food, etc. (and it feels a little wrong to be on the phone at all really.) apparently the same goes for blogging.... um we are eating food and laying on the beach and there is a swim up bar (which is cooler in concept than in real life i do believe) and there are tons of europeans here and i thought i would be much more self concious about being in a bathing suit than i am. yesterday i even walked around sans top and played in the ocean! tee hee. mom/post nursing boobs and all! dont tell. it was super fun. but i cant do it again b/c i have some rocking tan lines now and, well, i look pretty ridiculous overall. ha. but i care not. ::off to eat steak::

Fun stuff!! Dude.. I LOVED the swim up bar at our place-I'd never stayed anywhere with one! Then again, I'm easily entertained. Rock it with your bronzed..er..burned self! A REAL sunburn hurts so good when its on vacation! :)XOXO!

Lucky!!! Sounds like you guys are having a blast!! You go, girl!! Topless - now that's something I don't think I'd ever be able to do...

Swim-up bar. Awesome. The last time I was near one, I was five years old in Barbados. So, um, I wasn't drinking. But it was fun to sit there with my Mum. ;) Also, I am impressed that you went topless. I would be all over that, boobie stretch-marks and all. I believe in de-mystifying the nakedness, so I applaud you!

Oh I could never go topless! Glad your having a good time. You missed an awesome first birthday party today but I'm sure you would much rather be there!

Awesome. We are jealous of all of the above!

me=jealous. Although, i do have a beach here. But there's something a little cooler about an international beach. Relax, have a blast, and wear sunscreen! lovelove

Topless rocks with and without nursing boobs. Very liberating. ;) Hope the breasts did not suffer the sunburned fate of the rest of you!

The dominican is awesome. We stayed at the Iberostar Bavaro in 2006 and it was amazing. Hope you had a nice vacay

The swim-up bar and tables would have been totally awesome had the pool not been so DAMN WARM!
