Couple Retreat - The Spanish Way

Hola Amigos,

How is it Wednesday already, this post was supposed to be on Monday, but time has gotten away from me. This week I don't have any school, so I am trying to get caught up on all the little things that I have let go while studying. Also trying to plan our Thanksgiving feast. 
This past weekend we attended a marriage conference. One thing I love about the Spanish is that they always include the whole family. This weekend was more of a family retreat. We went to a resort on the beach and though it was too cold to swim in the sea, the hotel had a heated pool. We relaxed, ate good food, spent time with amazing friends, swam in the pool, and had a meeting about the importance of our relationships. My kids crack me up though, they were a little annoyed that it was a 4 star hotel and there were no chocolates on the pillows. 

Some of the highlights for me were:
-Waking up to the view above.
-Having to use my spanish to get the maintenance man to come and figure out why my family was locked in the hotel room.
-Walking along the board walk with all the moms, while the dads swam in the pool with the kids.
-The food.
-The jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, all the kids had to try it out.
-Dancing at the disco at 10:30 at night, it was full of all the kids and parents from our group.

Besos, Katie

What fun! I've been thinking of you all day and remembering how special it was to have you here last year. I hope your fest went well. The kids probably had school.
