St. Thomas and mom's birthday!

We are having a GREAT time in St. Thomas! Here are a few pictures from our trip so far...

Will liked watching the planes at the airport

The pier at the bottom of some steps

Our first night here Matt grilled us dinner - chicken, corn, zucchini, pineapple, and rice with pineapple mango salsa - yum!

Yesterday was my mom's 60th birthday and Matt made her bananas (and mango) foster french toast!

My sister and mom eating breakfast with the crazy sunglasses Mary Beth brought!

Will's first time at the beach! Even though we've been in St. Simons for a month, we had not yet taken him to the beach so this was his first time being in the ocean!

In front of the restaurant we went to for mom's birthday - Oceana

All of the food was amazing - this was Mary Beth's steak and shrimp

The view was unbelievable - we had such a great time!

After dinner we brought mom a chocolate (gluten free!) sheet cake that we'd made earlier that morning while mom got a massage! You absolutely couldn't tell it was gluten free (it was Pamela's brand) - it was delicious!

And then we gave mom her gift that we'd been working on for about the last 6 months. Last December Mary Beth and I took all of mom's photographs and shipped them to a company called Scan Cafe that scans them so you can have them digitally (mom had no idea we'd taken them). I highly recommend this company - they will take photos in any format, and they have high quality scanners that make the photos look great and will even correct them if there are tears or anything on them. We sorted them chronologically and made her a book starting with my birth in 1980 through 1984. We'll give her the subsequent books for later occasions. I made the book with Blurb and couldn't be happier with it! I researched to find the highest quality books and I think it looks really good!

We are really enjoying St. Thomas - it is off season right now, so there aren't any crowds. We are planning to visit St. John tomorrow, and I've heard it is really beautiful. More pictures to come!

Hey Jenny! We rented a house in Frenchman's Bay. It worked out good for us because we could put Will down for naps while we were at the pool. St. Thomas was beautiful - I miss it already!
