This was the lobby of the resort! It was all open air and had a huge staircase that lead down to the main area, where you could set up trips, visit the bar(s), and have meals at some of the restaurants! We were greeted with a glass of champagne as soon as we got off the bus!
Our room! It was humongo!!
Sometimes you just need to show off your coconuts!
It's a Giant Chess Board!
We took alot of pictures of ourselves!
...and lots of pics of the creepy crawlies we saw! This guy was one of my favorites! I put our room key (the size of a credit card) down next to him to show how teeny he was! I have no idea how this little guy made it all the way to the third floor!
We took tons of pictures of the gorgeous Dominican beach, where we spent many hours relaxing, swimming, talking, and enjoying many frosty beverages!
We got to meet so many fun people on our trip, like fellow newlyweds Mike and Jen and Marc and his fun family who were in from England!
This is one of my favorite pictures of Pete and I, taken after we walked back from our romantic dinner on the beach. After this, we headed back to our room, got undressed and into bed...and flipped on the TV so we could watch Michael Phelps win his eighth gold medal, LOL!! I guess we're sports fans even on our honeymoon!
And this is how we felt when it was time to go home:
All in all, it was an amazing trip and we had the time of our lives! It's back to the real world now- of work and school and laundry and not seeing each other as much as we would like. But with the blessing of God and a little bit of luck, we have a lifetime together to experience so many more things together!
