This was somewhat inspired by the March 2012 issue of In Style Magazine:
I focused on the combo in the corder with yellow shorts and a floral sleeveless top
Tried to take photos before we left the resort but the sun was not ideal and by the time we had the opportunity again it was dark but oh well….
Top - Anthropologie
Shorts - J Crew
Sandals, Purse - Shoedazzle
The kids who went to bed at 10:30 PM last night woke up around 5 am all excited to be in a new place!
We were the crankiest family by far given our lack of sleep and trying to keep them quiet until the rest of the civilization woke up at 8 AM.
My husband took them for a walk to explore the resort as soon as the clock hit 8 AM and they played tennis at the courts and killed time. Trying to do some school work was another disaster buy my in-laws joined at this point and came to the rescue by taking that on in their room.
Once it warmed up I took them to the pool and they played for a while. It is nice because there was no one there but I also wished there were at least one other family with kids to keep them company but there weren't. We had lunch together then my in laws left with my hubby for this first day of tennis matches at the tournament.
We came back to the room and after snacks and trying to entertain two very cranky and unreasonable kids I decided to attempt the unthinkable: A NAP!
Amazingly I laid between them in our bed and draw the thick black out curtains and faked these deep breathes and got them to fall a sleep. I couldn't sleep too afraid to even turn but was able to rest my eyes and enjoy the peace and quiet for an hour.
They were so much better when we woke up and we started working on a rainbow loom spiderman project but then I had to get ready to join my hubby at a reception while my in-laws took the kids.
At the reception Billie Jean King was there as the person who started this league and also celebrating the 40th anniversary of the match she won 'battle of the sexes'…
Here are the kids at the resort pool:
And here are a few from the reception:
