We took to the pool for another morning. Janet took part in a water aerobics class they were teaching and Kaden provided the entertainment. Once again he made friends with a stranger and this time it was with the instructor and for an almost 3 year old he kept up pretty well.
And yes, the helmet-I totally rocked it! It was about two sizes too big and I couldn't tighten it anymore but hey its St. Maarten and there really aren't any laws there about helmets or driving for that matter!
So while the boys napped we took off for about a 3 hour adventure around the island. Just a scooter, an ATV and a map with Justin and I leading the way. Watch out Amazing Race because we didn't get lost once!
I even managed to find one of the places we visited 5 years ago with the Berberiches on a cruise that we took. I really don't think Justin had any faith in me to find it but I somehow took us straight there.
We decided to go ahead and eat lunch here before taking off across the island to the French side. Now this is where I should probably mention that this is the first time that my mother is hearing about our scooter tour and for good reason. Had she known, she would have been a nervous wreck and probably ended up in the hospital…no joke-well I guess it is kind of a joke. It's like when I went skydiving. I didn't call and tell her I was going to do it, I called and told her that I DID it. This way she had nothing to fear! So Mom, we rode around on an unfamiliar island on a scooter and we all made it back in one piece--there was only a few times that I clung on to Justin a little harder. And for all those that know me, control is something I don't like to give up and I had absolutely no control over the scooter-all my faith was in Justin's hands and he did a marvelous job.
We rode around for about 3 hours and when we got back to the room the kids were still asleep. We were shocked but it was nice to sit down and relax just a bit before we headed to the beach. A big thanks to Grammy Janet for staying back with the kids and letting the four of us go off on our own little island adventure. A must do for any future trips!
