|Airport in Maldives - our flight was only 4 1/2 hrs. Then we had a 40 minute boat ride to our resort.|
|Our room had a back porch with a couch and a hammock with the beach just through the trees.|
|The boys loved our outdoor shower.|
|Anyone know what kind of a tree this is??|
|Cove just behind our room.|
Jaden and Ken went snorkeling here and saw several small black fin sharks.
Wish we had an underwater camera
|Building sand castles ...|
|collecting seashells along the beach.|
|Pool with the beach beyond...|
|karate moves in the pool|
|Ken enjoyed the fresh coconut|
|Hanging out in the pool|

|Nicholas didn't like the sand on his feet and was often carried around the island. |
Good thing he is a lightweight!! Such a spoiled little boy!!! Who still carries their 4 1/2 year old?!
We snorkeled everyday and Jaden did AWESOME!! Nicholas did awesome snorkeling in the pool, but he wouldn't even try in the ocean. He doesn't like sand or salt water. Guess a beach vacation wasn't his favorite.
|First snorkeling trip ... Nicholas was mad when he heard all the cool fish he missed seeing!|
|Maldivian music and dancing one night at dinner|
|Palm frond trimmed and shaped into a heart.|
|Jaden loved finding small hermit crabs and letting them crawl up his arm|
|Nicholas preferred watching the crabs, not handling them|
|Big hermit crabs came out at night. It was fun chasing after them with our flashlight.|
|This is as dressed up as we got on the trip ... no swimsuits and everyone wore shoes. :-)|
|Resort at sunset|
|We found a ping pong table in the kid area on our last morning at the resort. |
Who knew they would like it so much?!
