Dominican Vacation- Days 3 & 4 (when I broke my toe!)

This awesommmmmme little door stop in the middle of the bathroom floor…..yea….about that…..

I tripped over it & kicked it with my poor little toe. Pretty sure I broke it! OUCH!!!! Jon thought I was making it up, but it turned purple a few days later and it hurt to walk on it. (Please ignore my feet. Yes, that’s sand, and yes, they are that bony & my toes are that long in real life. And no, I didn’t have time to get a pedicure before either.)

I toughed it out though & still made it to the gym…we worked out 6 of our 7 mornings there. That’s one of my favorite things about vacay….no time crunch to try to squeeze in a work out, so you can really enjoy it and not stress about it.

Check out Laura getting it on the bike back there! Oh, and our new friend Martha we made while walking to the gym. She was so sweet. (And from Jersey, of course!)

After a day at the pool, we got ready for dinner….Italian, YUM! Definitely our fave!!

I could seriously take 8 million pictures of my stud of a hubby!! (And I pretty much do!) Especially when he’s dressed up!!! He works in construction & we spend a lot of time working out, so I rarely get to see him all snazzed up….but man, he SURE does dress up well!!

On our way to dinner….

They also had an AWESOME Michael Jackson show that night!! LOVED it!!! Who doesn’t love a little MJ??

The next morning, Big Jon decided to come work out with us. We’re becoming masters at the self- portraits. I know some day our kiddos will be happy we have all these random pictures!

After our workout we headed to the buffet for breakfast….

You can still eat clean on vacation!! (This tasted way better than it looks!) Check it out, the meal of champs. I was so pumped they had boiled eggs!

It was a little cloudy & rain was on the forecast, so we just walked around the resort until the rain came.

Punta Cana 112

I asked the boys to stop and pose for a picture, and this is what they did immediately. Ha! They look like 5 year olds!! Or teenage girls…

Punta Cana 113

This was a kid-friendly resort, which is great to keep in mind for the future. There was a whole separate area and pool for kids…

Just like at home…still rockin’ the workout clothes LONG after the workout.

Punta Cana 118

Like I said, I have WAY too many pics of peacocks from the trip.Punta Cana 120Punta Cana 121

We napped, read, & just relaxed during the rainy day…

And ate thai for dinner! I had pad thai…it was so good!!

I have some questions about Advocare, and would like to email you, but can't find your email on your blog.
