Sometimes, very occasionally, we get indulge in a dream, a wish, a hope. One of my dreams has been to take The Smalls to Jamaica for a family holiday. I don’t know how we made it happen (an incredible amount of hard work? Sheer determination? Credit cards??!), but we did. And it was everything I hoped, and more.
The Mr and I packed all the bags, and my hula hoops (HAHAHAHAH YEAH I DID), and The Smalls, and headed to our favourite location – Coyaba Beach Resort & Club, in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Our first trip there was for our honeymoon back in 2006, and travelled back some 15 months later when Big Small was still a “babe in arms”. I actually dreamed about the day we would go back with both of The Smalls.
And it happened. Coyaba Beach Resort & Club, all booked, and we even hoped to see some of our old friends, – the staff who worked there, and had previously made us feel so welcome. They were STILL THERE, and they remembered us, and they were AWESOME. (Massive love, smiles and thank you to Gladstone, Ian, Barbara, and Darlton, as well as hilarious new member Michael – we love and miss you guys so much.)
We long to go back already – we only booked one week (for maaaaaaaany reasons), and even after 2 days, The Smalls asked us how come we were only there for one week.
I don’t need to tell you how that week went down. I took photos on my film camera only, and nearly died with excitement and joy when all these beautiful scans came back from the amazing Carmencita Film Lab in Spain. I think, just through these photos alone, I’ve relived the holiday a million times over already. I hope you enjoy them even half as much as I do. 🙂 xx
