The weather in Chicago has been dismal, so I'm holding onto visions of our recent trip to the Dominican Republic. We indulged in delicious meals and local cocktails, spent time in the pool and the sand, and truly unplugged for the first time in ages.
My daughter made a friend from Venezuela, and despite the language barrier, they loved every minute they spent together. Although our place is not advertised as a family resort, it had the cutest bunk room for the kids (along with tiny robes and slippers), which made bedtime easy, and our evenings much more relaxing. It was the perfect balance of grown-up amenities, with child friendly touches, so the whole family was happy.
Here are a few glimpses of our getaway....
