Nickelodeon Punta Cana pt2

The one thing I love about vacations, especially resort vacations is the no schedules! No alarm clocks. Letting the day guide you. Just relax and have fun! No cooking no cleaning ahh can I go back! 


 
Some mornings we went out for breakfast, other mornings we ordered room service and spent the morning in our swim up pad. We just did whatever we felt like that day! 

The restaurants at this resort are a 5+. We enjoyed the food and the vibes. They were beautifully decorated sheek and modern. Never crowded and never any line ups. 

Our favorite day time stop was the cafe. 
Lattes and donuts yum! 



 Other restaurants indclued the Brgrsph
For the yummy machete burger!!!


A huge burger that is shared. 

 Wok wok was so very good too! We got sushi, and pad Thai and Mahi mahi fish.

Spacewalker was pretty cool restaurant too, kids loved taking pictures with this astronaut 
 

Oh and I can't forget the big beach party they had with the most delicious food! And awesome party! 


 

 

 One night The Mr and I even got to have a romantic candle light dinner on the beach. The kids went to the Just Kidn daycare which was awesome. An indoor playground. They had fun and we had a wonderful anniversary dinner. 

The service was outstanding and our romantic dinner menu was soo good! 



 
Ok enough about food! How about all the super fun things we did! 
 
 
 Aqua park was definitely a fun place to be. Lazy river, water slides, drinks in the pool. Nickelodeon character visits daily!






 


 


 

And SLIME FUN! 

So daily they do a draw and pick 10 rooms that will be slimed that day. Our room got picked on our 5th day!
Little K decided he would pull the lever instead of sitting with us. Poor baby am wasn't impressed.



 Daily at 3pm they have the water park slime. Which everyone loved ha! 



 
 
Everyday was so much fun. To be continued!

Nickelodeon Punta Cana! PT 1

This was our best family trip by far! 
We booked this trip for our 10 year anniversary. We counted down the months and days! The kids were so excited! Who am I kidding, Mr M and I were even more excited! 


 
Waking up at 5am to go to the airport was so exciting. Baby M had no idea what was going on and loved every second of it.


Little k even got to meet the pilots! He told them he was finished SK and going to grade 1!  

The plane ride was good. iPads and candy for entertainment. Baby M got a little restless but napped a bit too so that helped! 



 

The bus to the hotel from the airport was about 30mins. 

When we arrived we were soo impressed with our room! Swim up pad suite! 
 



Soo nice! They thought of everything here. The space was perfect. Fully stocked mini fridge with beer and pop and water and snacks! Oh and the room service. Amazing. 

 Our pool connected to the swim up bar and a snack bar too.  We would swim over for drink and food then swim back ha! 

The first thing we did when we arrived was swim! Of course! When you open your sliding door to a pool! Little K said this was the best part of the trip haha. Second was the Nickelodeon aqua park! More on that soon! 

The resort was beautiful! 
Big infinity pool over looking the ocean. 



I have so much to talk about so I'll do it in parts! This is part 1! Part 2 coming soon haha. 
 
Like how we got slimed! Yup! Little K pulled that lever to slime his family!

Antique Piano adventure

A couple of weeks ago a friend sent me a message about a piano their parents were selling. We weren't in the market for a new piano, but thought sure, an antique piano would be great! 

We didn't put much thought into it... I rented a truck, my husband called my brother inlaw and the 3 of us went to pick up this piano.. ha!  On our way there I began looking at YouTube videos about moving a piano :/ something I should have did during the week, not on the way there. I was even going to bring the kids! Good thing I dropped them off to my sister last minute! 

I'll get back to that in a bit - it was an old childhood friends. We lived next door to each other about 25 years ago. It was so nice seeing them and catching up. Such lovely, welcoming people. They were happy the piano was going to someone they knew. We were happy they thought of us.

Ok back to the piano adventure. Ugh it was heavy. I should have hired a piano mover... but I had 2 strong guys haha 

It was tough getting it in the truck, a lot of, try this, no try that, how about this.. you get it.. ha!.. that was part one. Then part 2... getting it in our house. We had to back up over the grass, yikes. 


The guys built a ramp. Nice and sturdy. 

Good thing we had 2 little trolly things (no idea what they are called) it helped roll that heavy piano! 

These guys can be professional piano movers now! They were awesome! 





 

Our piano teacher loved it, when he saw it yesterday. We need to get it tuned but it's a great piece. I love this way it looks in my hallway. 



 I'm thinking a big clock over top of it.

We have some big art already in the area
So I think a clock would add something different.


 


 That evening we couldn't stop talking about the piano adventure. It took us all afternoon. It was fun and a story we will never forget. I can't wait for little K to begin playing on it! 




 
 
 
I still need to research a little more on the piano. It's old! I'm sure it has some history!

Long weekend fun!

Yay long weekends! This long weekend was jammed packed with fun events! 

The piles of laundry prove it ha!

Friday my sister took the day off work and we took the kids to the Zoo!

I fit another car seat in my car so we could travel together! The kids loved this! 




It was a hot day! So after walking around seeing the animals we went to the splash pad they had there.




Baby Mikey loved seeing the animals. He was so good, and even took a nice long nap! 

Both kids napped on the way home and we waited for daddy to come home. We then headed back out for a movie night! 
A drive in movie that is! 
We watched the secret life of pets. Ha! Really cute movie.
We got popcorn and snacks! Mr K also enjoyed the playground they had there.


And we got all cozy to watch the movie! 
Blankets, chairs.. We forgot our pillows tho. I changed the kids to their pj's when the movie started and we snuggled up in the trunk of the car to watch. 
We've been many times with the kids and we love this little tradition we've made. 


Saturday night was a night out for this mama! My cousins stagette!
See that purse- That's my new Kate spade, early birthday gift :) I love it!

Ok back to the night out. We had a blast celebrating my cousins stagette. 

We had way to much fun driving to dinner blasting Drake. 

We played stagette games, had a great dinner and danced danced danced! 


Daddy was just fine home with the kiddies. Baby Mikey even took more steps! Much more than he did with me! I'll post on that later! 

I was on just 4 hours of sleep and we had plans for Sunday! 

Yesterday we spent the whole day at a water park!
We rented the cabana to have our own private space. Which came in handy when baby M napped. We had lunch and relaxed too. 


We had so much fun going on water slides and the lazy river. Both kids loved it! We spent the whole day there! 

Today we had more water fun at my uncles annual pool party! 


Always a great time with family. 
Mr K spent the whole time in the water! Even when it rained for 45mins he was still in there! 




We are all pooped! My house is upside down from all the in and out this weekend. But I wouldn't change any of it! We made some amazing memories this weekend. 

It's time for bed! All my boys are sound asleep! Good night!
