Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Cullen and I just returned from a fabulous, restful, wonderfully overdue vacation to the DR. For those of you who have been there, my words below will come as no surprise. For those of you who have NOT been there - Put the Dominican Republic on YOUR bucket list. 

So, The Durbin and The Mills packed their bags for a long, overdue vacation. We chose our destination in June or July, booked it, and have been counting down the days! 

We arrived on Wednesday mid-day after a nice (easy) flight and we decided it would be best to throw on our suits immediately and get into the beach!
This doesn't come close to accurately portraying what the beach looked like.
We snuba dived, snorkeled and we took speed boats in the ocean.
We dined on food that was great. We drank as often as we wanted...the boys for sure won that contest. We {the girls} were more concerned about catching up on sleep.

We saw cocoa plantations, and played in 10-15 foot ocean waves that were postcard perfect.

We went 4-wheeling through the country-side, along the beach and to a cave, where we were able to get off and play in a fresh water spring...

The company was fantastic. We had a tremendous amount of laughs.

We watched the MLB World Series...we all know how that ended. Cullen was depressed.
But, by about Saturday night, we were starting to really miss our kiddos.
So, we had one last great dinner...

...and kissed Paradise goodbye. 

Sunday night - LATE, we came home to our children, woke up Monday morning and started our lives over. Rested. Rejuvenated. Happy.
