We stayed at Beaches Resort which is number 5 on this mabe in Grace Bay
This is the boat we went took for our dives.
This is the pool that was just outside our room
This is the beach where we got to play as a family and also just Mommy and Daddy time too. :-)
On one of our dives at Cathedral we were able to see 2 hawk bill turtles.
This is the Arizona pool right next to the beach. We spent plenty of time here as well as dining here.
Another shot of the Arizona pool and restaurant.
Playing sharks at the Iguanas pool
The kids just loved playing at this fountain. It was in the French Village, near our room.
Anya getting ready for the Sesame Street Show.
Many nights there were kids dance parties up on stage and our kids loved every minute of it. These were usually prior to a Sesame Street Show.
At the end of each dance party, each kid would say their name & where they were from. Lars had the cutest little southern accent when saying NC.
Anya said her name well and "Anya" was also where she was from (every night)
Hanging out in the room
Good morning sunshine! Anya was up early singing, so we snapped a shot.
Anya's singing woke up Lars
