Day 1: Started early. Early like 3:30am early. We all (mom, brother, his wife, sam, me) met at our house to go to the airport together. There was a lot of excitement, but not too much talking - sleepy people. We flew to Miami and had a layover where we got breakfast and walked around. The Miami airport is HUGE. Back on a plane to fly 3 1/2 hours to St. Lucia. We watched the movie The Big Year (Owen Wilson, Jack Black) - funny, but only watched it because it was on.
Then we landed.

Day 5: Para sailing, snorkeling, swimming, eating, drinking.....a lazy day :)
Day 6: Go home day :( We didn't have to leave until 11, which was great. We got a last day tour through some villages and ended at the airport. Flight back was easy peasy and we landed in Va at 12:30am. Long day. Long trip. Totally worth it.
