It's Aruba time again!

We are leaving Sunday! for two weeks in our Aruba timeshare. I have been counting the days. Looking forward to the nice warm sunny days, cooling breezes and sitting around poolside and on the beach and drinking tropical drinks.

Even better, this year my grandson (3 YO), daughter and SIL are coming to stay with us for the second week. We're looking forward to seeing Steven enjoy the beach, ocean and the iguanas scurrying all over the place.

Sadly, the Super Bowl is a week later this year so we won't be able to have our Super Bowl Party in the middle of our vacation. I guess we'll have to find another excuse to have a party.

GB, you guys will have a great time in Disney. Rachel will be beside herself with excitement. Have a great time and Happy Birthday in advance as I will be airborne on Sunday.

Alix, Vegas and Cuba doesn't sound too shabby to me! I hope you can find time to get to a casino or see some of the great entertainment that Vegas has to offer. Of course, Cuba used to be a prized Caribbean destination. Enjoy the warm sunshine and great foods.

Most of my travel will be for class all in VA. Richmond, Charlottesville, Virginia Beach. All pretty much local for me. Can't afford any big trips. Hope to get the camper out more than one weekend this year though.

Andy, Aruba always sounds like such a lovely time. I hope you get lots of time to enjoy your family on the beach.

I'm researching the things we should be seeing in Vegas. I can't WAIT.

Are we there yet???

Andy, I get jealous of you every year when you go to Aruba. It always looks like so much fun from your pictures. You are going to have an amazing time with your grandson. Kind on the beach are just one of the greatest things in the world. Have a blast and I can't wait to see some pictures.

It's rubber to the road time. We leave tomorrow so I'll have to start packing this afternoon.

GB, I bought a new Sony DSC-W290 camera and I have been practicing with it. Lots of great features the old one didn't offer. Here's hoping they help me take decent fotos.

Perfect timing for a new camera Andy. I have no doubt you will return with some excellent shots.

I can't post them in the photo section because I've exceeded my limit. I'd have to delete a bunch to make room.

Or you can start a thread and post them in there.

*forehead slap* Why didn't I think of that?
