The ship was HUGE but so much fun. We climbed the rock wall, played ping-pong and mini golf, relaxed in the pools and hot tubs, watched Gil try to conquer the Flow Rider, and that is just for starters!
We spent an amazing night in Puerto Rico kayaking in one of their three bioluminescent bays. This was a "life list" experience. Watching the water glow beneath our kayaks, fish looking like shooting stars as the zip away from us...it is an affirmation of the wonderous aspects of life.
We played on the beach in Meagan's Bay on St. Thomas where the sand is so fine and the water is so clear it takes your breath away. And our last stop was an exciting tree-top zip line adventure on the island of St. Maartin followed by an afternoon of shell collecting on the beach before boarding the ship and sailing back to Miami.

On the home front, Kyle returned from vacation feeling really good. The symptoms he was experiencing before we left seem to have subsided. On April 16th he had a check-up with Cori and Children's is remaining on the same treatment plan as before. His next MRI is scheduled for May 14th and what comes next depends on what the pictures tell us.
Thanks to everyone for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. And if you have an extra minute, please add a little something for Caitlyn Churak, Mara Adams, Lindsey Adams, and Aidan Zaugg. These are just a few of the kids we have come to know who are fighting brain bumps like Kyle's. What they have taught us is to live each day as the gift it is. There are no extra points for saving up experiences for a "better" time.
