Burying Our Heads in the Sand

Last year we took what we thought was our last BIG vacation as a childless couple. We thought we would be travelling this spring to bring our wee babe home. Hmmmmmm...we thought wrong.

We didn't plan a vacation for 2009 and then in the last couple of weeks things just came together.

This year we are going to take a couple of smaller holidays to break up the wait. We decided to head somewhere hot and bury our heads in the sand for awhile (it will help quiet the noise in my head) and are leaving this Friday.


I better make sure we put lots of sunscreen on our dairiares so as NOT to get sunburnt!



I plan on drinking a few of these


Yvan will undoubtedly drink some of these



all while enjoying this view!



Then at the end of April we are taking a very exciting trip to L.A. where we will get to meet these two fantastic people!

Bon Voyage!

Oh wow, I am so envious! All you people taking all these tropical vacations! All our money went into our adoption, with nothing left over, sadly... oh well, she was worth it. :)

Well I am counting on you to have some tasty tropical bevvies for me, then!

Rana and Yvan said...

Cinn - she WAS worth every red cent - fortunately, this wait has allowed us to continue saving money (or unfortunately I guess because we don't have a referral yet)...

We would rather be spending our $$$$ on a baby- sigh!

Rhonda and Kristin said...

OOOOOOOOO, so excited for you!!! We had drinks for you in Cuba, so I expect the same in return!

And Vegas too, you wild crazy couple!!

(PS. The docs left)!!

Stephanie said...

I hope you have a wonderful relaxing time!!

Steph ;-)

CinnamonOpus said...

Well, as long as you have lots of tasty drinks for ME... I will spend my time while you are vacating working on a little surprise for YOU!

Rana and Yvan said...

oh Cinn! You are the SWEETEST!

Kendra said...

Sounds like a great distraction Rana! Sun, water and drinks are always a good way to pass some time.

Ramona said...

Ok, I'm not catching where exactly you are headed, but I am jealous! What a great way to survive this wait- by leaving and having fun!!! You deserve a great trip- becasue when you come back, we are going to have to start planning our trip together- to Ethiopia (I so want to travel with you and am so ready to just go!!!)

Rana and Yvan said...

Oh Ramona! I so, so, so, so hope we travel together!!! We are going to the Dominican for a week!

When I get back you, me, Hazel, Carolyn, Donna, and anyone else I am forgetting who is up in the old waiters club better get some good news!

Sharla said...

I think a trip (or ten!) might be just what the doctor ordered!

Julia said...

Enjoy every moment. I predict that you & Julie will be comparing proposal photos in LA.

boltupright said...

oh yeah, mojitos and some sun & sand are always called for. Enjoy!!

haze said...

Jeez - you get to meet Julie and Steven. I am SO. JEALOUS!! (plus you're going to the Dominican)

Enjoy a half-dozen mojitos for me, will ya? And give Julie a big old Canadian hug from me when you see her.

Janice said...

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. I love those photos, especially the head in the sane one.

I just spent the better part of yesterday looking for last minute March Break deals to some sunny destination. I was settled on staying home this winter until my husband suggested we should go somewhere... How can you not just check for deals. Nothing planned yet and we should probably just stay home and save our money.

Can you believe that silly bachelor. What a goof! At least Jillian is next. Go Canadian girl!!
