I love to travel. Every year, my family and I take a fun summer vacation to a new location. Because we have small children, we typically do an all inclusive resort because it gives us more choices for the kids and we don't have to try to log a stroller and a bunch of items around for the kids. At an all inclusive resort, we are right there where all the fun happens and we are a short distance from the beach, food, play areas, pools and nap time. A total win-win for everyone.
In August, my family and I took our annual family vacation to the beautiful island of St. Maarten. Unfortunately, St. Maarten was impacted by recent hurricane and our beautiful resort was impacted.
We had a great time with the kids and thankfully, the resort we stayed at had a few good things to keep the kids engaged. They had activities also but we never really participated in them. We chose instead to spend time at the pool and on the beach.
Since I am on a low carb high fat eating plan, I was very measured with what I ate. However, it is vacation afterall so I made sure every other day was an "off" day.
As I said earlier, part of the reason we chose to go with an all inclusive was to ensure we didn't have to log a bunch of items around with us. Having little kids means having a snack with you at all times. Including having wipes and a few other essentials. My phone, sunglasses, credit cards, cash all fit in there.
