Greetings from Belize

Up at 4:00 am and ready to go. Got out of Phoenix early and headed to Dallas. Luke’s first airplane ride and he did great, and even got to take a picture with the captain up in the cockpit.

Quick lunch in Dallas and then off to Belize, another great trip for Luke. Once in Belize we had to catch a small puddle jumper out to the island. This time Randy got to ride copilot in the plane and Luke sat on grandpa’s lap. The girls sat in the back of the plane.

Once we got to the island the first order of business was to get into more comfortable clothes and find a cold Belikin beer, which didn’t take long.

After that was a stroll down the beach, stopping for cold beer or dirty bananas or rum punches or mojitos or whatever else we could find and of course some water for Luke. We finished up the evening with dinner at the Blue Water Grill, which is only feet away from the Caribbean shore.

Luke had a big day of ‘firsts’ today from, riding his first escalator, first tram car, first big airplane, first small airplane, sitting on giant turtles and manatees. That made for a long day, so hopefully we will sleep well tonight and be ready for more adventures tomorrow.
