Welcome to our second and final day out on the beach celebrating our first year of marriage. It was a huge answer to prayer, considering that it was supposed to storm all day long. There may have been clouds, but let me assure you--they were a blessing since it was so hot out. It only rained for forty-five minutes, which showed up at the perfect time: right as we were pulling back into our villa for lunch. By the time we were ready to head back to the beach, all the grey was gone from the sky and the next several hours were splendid, much like the rest of our wonderful weekend.
We soaked up the sun (again), used self-timer for the 239348947523rd time, biked a little more than we did the day before, had the best meal of the weekend (besides the Krispy Kreme doughnuts we brought along for the trip, of course), and spent another entire twenty-four hours totally dedicating every second to each other. My favorite part was watching Teesh save the day by rescuing the cutest little boy's kite that was swept up by the wind. I got a small glimpse of him fulfilling the role of daddy, and I would be lying if I said I didn't have a few tears in my eyes as I hid behind my camera lens. It was absolutely precious, and I can promise you that I'll be telling our kiddos that story of their out-of-this-world daddy one day soon. :)
