Back From Punta Cana

Five days of vacation just flew by. We had a great time at the Memories Splash, a kid-friendly, all-inclusive resort. Our daily activities were pretty much the same.

I woke up around 5:30 in the morning, went to the balcony, breathed the morning wind, and worked on one of my independent studies. Đán got up around 7:30 and we rode the shuttle around the property. We enjoyed seeing the animals including ducks, chickens, goose, and peacocks. Đán wanted to be a peacock and referred to himself as: “I am with the blue feather on my butt.”

Around 9AM everyone went to breakfast. My favorite dishes were fried eggs and omelet (ham, bacon, mushroom, jalapeño, green pepper, onion, corn, and tomatoes). I always loved passion fruit and tropical juices. I even bought along chia seeds to mix with the juices for detox.

After breakfast, we headed to the beach. The kids had fun playing with the waves while I had my fun at the bar. At noon, we grabbed quick bites like hamburger, panini, fries, and ice cream before heading to the water park. The kids enjoyed the water park the most. Around 3PM, the kids took a nap and then we moved to the kid’s pool closed by our room.

Around 7PM, we headed to dinner. At 10PM the kids went to bed. I retreated back to the balcony to do my own work until midnight.

The funniest moments were when Đán crashed at dinner table two nights in a row. Because he didn’t take a nap and he spent all day in the water, he fell asleep as we were just started to have dinner. Đạo loved every activities at the resort. As for us parents, we enjoyed seeing the kids having fun. I had my fun too. My wife was just fantastic. Thanks mommy, for the great memories.
