A Warm Sunny Island Getaway - Punta Cana

Hope everyone had a great holiday season. We spent 5 wonderfully warm days in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We had a rocky start with delayed flights and almost missed connections.. but we made it. We took my parents with us, we hadn't seen my dad in over three years and the kids and I had to emotionally blackmail him to make him join us on the trip. It was a great little getaway.. we stayed at Majestic Colonial All Inclusive Resort. The food was fantastic, a great beach and pool and plenty of activities for kids and adults alike. H had a rough time, he had a fever for the first two days and was a real cranky pants for the other three.. M and I were feeling quite burned out these last few months and decided to skip exploration of the island and never left the resort..

Get ready for a photo dump

Looks absolutely delightful! I hope the little pool shark won a lot of money hustling at the pool table!

My husband and I went to Punta Cana a few years ago and stayed at the Iberostar. The beach there is amazing! What a nice little getaway! What fun! Traveling is a headache though...I love it/hate it.

I have never been to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This looks like such a magical vacation. It looks like you had a fabulous time in such a wonderful place.

I love when they add the bubbles/foam to the water. When we were in Mexico they did that on the 4th of July. SO fun! Love these photos, it looks like a beautiful and relaxing place.

A warm and sunny island getaway sounds like heaven to me. It hasn't been exactly cold yet this winter, but I'm fed up with the grey and wet weather, and could do with some sunshine. Meanwhile, I live vacariously through your wonderful holiday photos! xxx

How wonderful that you went on this trip with your parents. Oh, the pool table photos made me smile. We had a pool table growing up, and I have to say, that I was pretty good haha. The beach pictures are awesome. My grandbabies just spent some time on the beach last weekend also. Fun times. What a cute picture of your son buried in the sand.

Happy New Year to you, and thank you for all your visits. I appreciate them.
