When the cat's away...

Shane and I were fortunate enough to have an awesome get-away this weekend. I won the "Rookie of the Year" award for work and we were awarded a trip to West Palm Beach, FL. Everyone in the company that won an award was there with their spouse, or guest. We left Thursday and arrived home this evening. It was an unbelievable vacation at the Four Seasons Hotel, all expenses paid, including a round of golf for Shane, a facial for me, and a couple's massage!! We had such a great time sitting on the beach, sipping great drinks and just RELAXING!!! We were bummed because Eric Clapton and Fergie were both staying at the hotel and we never saw them. Everybody else caught a glimpse of them at some point. We made up for it at the airport on the way home, Natasha Bedingfield was behind us in security!! I sang "I got a pocket, got a pocket full of sunshine..." all the way home =). Both grandparents watched the kids...and of course the kids had their own mini vacation =). Below are some pictures of us at the beach and some of the kids when we got home. They were excited (well, really just Claire) to put on their new night shirts we brought them back. Enjoy...

This is a shot of Shane and some of the other guys "playing" in the water...Shane is the last head on the right...
Our awesome beach setting...Shane going to play some more...I put this picture out here for Jessica...she said I would never put a pic of me in a bathing suit...haha
Behind my sexy husband =), there is taped off area where they are protecting a turtle's nest, we thought it was so cool.

This is the best pic we could get of Natasha Bedingfield without being too obvious. Shane snapped it from his phone!
Claire excited to wear her new Palm Beach flamingo nightshirt...
Cooper wearing the gift we brought him home, doesn't he look thrilled...LOL
O in his shark shirt...
I just love those smiles...
CHEEEEEEESE...
The most common shot in my house...Owen drinking his milk...
As much as we loved our trip, we could not wait to get home today and see our sweeties!!


Never a serious photo with daddy =)...

look at your tans...I'm so jealous!! Looks like you had so much fun. What could be more relaxing than sitting on the beach, sippin on your favorite drinks! I'm just daydreaming of how nice that would be right about now with this nasty, rainy weather! How cool that you got to see Natasha Betingfield!(sp?)
