The pièce de résistance for me

Admittedly, there were many, many wonderful aspects to our vacation last week: watching our children experience new things, having my parents with us, all our lovely accommodations both in travel and in rest, the food, the views; I could go on for hours.

But, there was one activity that took the cake for me, a real dream come true.

I SWAM WITH A DOLPHIN, Y'ALL!!

(Sorry, I didn't mean to yell.)

But, I'm pretty proud. I was even the first in the water and the first to shoot my hand up to volunteer, not my usual MO.














Giving the command.













And it wasn't just me, Sutton and Reagan did it too.










We were able to pet him.

















We danced with him.















Reagan's was a fast dance.














We held on tight as he pulled us through the water. (*Warning* These are really lovely pics)
















And we got some very sweet dolphin kisses.















And YES it was just as amazing as I always dreamt it would be.

You three look like sisters! I think it's funny that all 3 of you "squish" your faces the exact same way!! It looks like it was alot of fun!

OMG! You're right! I didn't even notice that!

It WAS fun. Even if we do look really goofy. LOL!

I think you look just like Mom! Sure looks fun and how exciting! A perfect way for Sutton to enjoy her family before heading off to college..
