Really that's it.....Greece was magical....it was so warm and sunny with the sea breeze keeping it from being "too hot"....it was GORGEOUS....it was absolutely no stress (our only decisions were shall we swim, sail, kayak, play tennis, or lay by the pool and read.) It was bikinis and swim trunks from morning till dusk and then dressing up for dinners. It was bougainvillea EVERYWHERE and whitewashed buildings with amazing blue roofs (almost everything had a bright blue roof....WOW!) We did rent a car one day and check out the island (Kos...which is the birth place of Hippocrates). There were some gorgeous beaches and churches and ruins from the 4th century BC (all to do with Hippocrates).
Dean played tennis everyday. Spike sailed everyday. Addie LOVED the beach (I think she is a true surfer girl at heart!) Dean preferred the pool. We played about five million card games (one of our favorite family activities). It was perfect.
And YES...the sky really was that blue...the water really was that blue!
The kids spent three hours in the morning at kids club (which Dean LOVED and Addie was ok with) then we all spent the afternoons together. At dinner time the kids could go watch movies (which again Dean LOVED (especially seeing all his friends from club) and Addie was ok with.)
We've never done that kind of holiday before ("that kind" being one where we stay in one place and just relax AND being one with kids activities.) I think for the most part the "see lots, stay busy, pack in as much of a city as you can in a given amount of time" is more our style, but every now and again I think we will throw in the "relaxing" holiday.
I've got to run...we have a very full week end (Dean's school's Family Fun Day and Picnic this morning, our friends Jon's birthday party at our house tonight ("Jon" of "Lils and Jon"), a birthday party tomorrow morning, Dean's friend to play tomorrow afternoon and then Messy Church in the evening.)
Must mention before I go....The Scrap Review is having the most amazing raffle prize today
