So, I’m back from my fabulous trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

A big, fat, thank you to San Juan Marriott for hosting our stay- the hotel, location and service was incredible!

Right before I left, they gave me a sneak peek of the new, fabulous bar area they are building…..

This lounge area has a sleek looking bar, dance floor and VIP booths.

Totally swanky.

I think I need to go back so I can see it when it’s done….

Coming back to reality is tough after great food, fabulous beaches and swanky pools.

But the hardest part?

Making my own bed.

I must say, there is nothing quite like a vacation to spend quality time with your kids.

I delighted in the time we spent together in the pool, on the beach, exploring, laughing, playing.

One of the days, we went snorkeling off the coast of the private island they used to film Pirates of the Caribbean.

We spent the day lounging on a caterman and jumping off the boat into perfectly blue, perfectly warm water.

It was something I hope he never forgets.

I know I won’t.

So, in the other post about Puerto Rico, I put out an offer.

I would help one SITS Girl pitch a hotel for a fabulous vacation.

That lucky lady is….

Susan in the Boonies!

Now, what is your best family vacation memory?

  • We won’t know for a little while she’s only 8 months old LOL but we did snorkel like you on our Honeymoon @ Peter Island. That was the trip of a lifetime. Thanks for sharing these pictures it looks amazing.

  • Hooray! It couldn’t happen to a nicer person!

  • How fun!!!!!!!!!! Right now, no vacations due to $$ issues but I have always loved my vacations in Hawaii in the past – never gets old to me! 🙂

  • Jen says:

    I am so glad that you had a great trip.

  • Tricia Oakes says:

    Wow! What a great trip! If you are ever interested in hooking a SITSTA up with assistance on pitching for trips, let me know. I’m stuck and scared. :/

  • Jodi says:

    WOW!! that’s a whole lot of fun! 🙂

    I’m not one for traveling… stay-cations are my current fave… BUT I do love going to visit any kind of historical place. Like Charleston, SC and St. Augustine, FL

  • So…seriously? You’re going to help me pitch them???

    That would be AWESOME!!!!!!!!

  • I’m hyperventilating!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ARE YOU SERIOUS???????


  • Congratulations to the winner! Your vacation looks amazing! My favorite vacation memory is from Dec. 2010. We rented a huge cabin in TN with my in-laws and SIL. For stocking stuffers hubby and I bought everyone (11 people) a NERF 6 shooter. The cabin living room and kitchen was wide open with high vaulted ceilings and a balcony that went across on end of the room. We had the biggest, funnest NERF shoot-out one day. I don’t think my kids will ever forget that day!

  • Mama Kat says:

    What an amazing trip! We have put the San Juan Marriott Puerto Rico on our family’s calendar for a future vacation!

  • Kristen says:

    I loved seeing your pics from this trip come over on Twitter. It always amazes me what a photo cannot only capture in what is in front of the lens but the feeling of the person behind the lens while taking it. It seemed obvious to me that you were enjoying every second of it! It’s good to know that people you care about & support are having a well deserved break!
    Our favorite family vacation has happened twice in the same house that we rented in Deep Creek, MD. They were the most relaxing vacations we have ever had as a family and they were all about family. We didn’t have a million sites to see and we did things at our own pace. Hope we get to do it again sometime!

  • Great stay. Congrats to the winner.
