It's been a while since the old blog got an update. Here's a couple pictures to highlight what we've been up to.
Jodi's First Birthday
Our friends JP and Lisa celebrated their daughter's first birthday with a cupcake party at Camana Bay. Jodi loved her first taste of sugar!
Seven Mile Beach Sunset
Brent had a Friday night work event a week ago, so I decided to walk to the beach by myself. Once I got there, I was eaten alive by mosquitoes. I snapped two pictures and had to turn around. The trip wasn't a complete waste - I also got TCBY on the way home :)
It's funny...when we moved here we were told that the mosquitoes were awful, but I hadn't felt one bite. I'm usually extremely prone to the little beast, so I thought at last I had found a breed that didn't like me. Little did I know that the mosquitoes didn't show up till about June. I can't wait till fall when we can enjoy the evening weather again!
This Friday night Brent and I went on a date to Hemingways. We actually made a list of all the restaurants we've been to on island (the purpose being to make sure we hit all of our favorites again), and I was shocked at the number! We decided to try somewhere new; Hemingways is the restaurant at Grand Cayman Beach Suites. We had the place to ourselves!
This is the complimentary appetizer from the chef. Brent thought he said it was parsley custard...
My beef dish was AMAZING. It had apples, blackberries, caramelized onions and several kinds of sauce. Even the bread sticks were delectable. Brent's pan seared wahoo wasn't as good, but I was glad we were able to split both.
Every now and then we'll pull out the couch to cuddle and watch a movie. Here's Brent checking some fantasy football.
Walter loves the pull out couch too!
It's been pretty rainy recently. July and August didn't feel like "rainy season," but it's been especially cloudy this week. The last two Saturdays we took Walter to Spotts beach, and left when we saw lightning. I don't mind a little rain - it's nice to tuck away inside to watch football (Brent) and do some reading (Katie). I just hope it clears up for Lorren and Cole's visit in two weeks!
