San Juan, Puerto Rico.

When I hopped on JetBlue a few weeks into the new year and saw that we could get round trip tickets with our points to Puerto Rico, I jumped at the opportunity. Knowing that we typically get the itch for some kind of "spring break" come March, it seemed like perfect timing to take a quick vacation. The best part about Puerto Rico - no passport required! It felt like one less thing to worry about when traveling with Hazel, as we thought through all the logistics and timing. Since this was our first time traveling with a baby (other than my sister-trip to Waco, TX), we went in with realistic expectations of how much relaxing we'd get to do, and kind of treated it as an experiment vacation. As usual, Hazel exceeded all our expectations and was just as go with the flow as she is in our normal life. While we didn't read as much of our books as we would have hoped, we had such a wonderful time away as family and felt absolutely spoiled staying at The Condado Vanderbilt Hotel. Most of our days were spent lounging by the infinity pool, and enjoying our oceanfront balcony. We also had a lovely outing in Old Town San Juan, which surpassed our expectations as well. We headed off the beaten path, and found some of the less tourist-traversed areas which were all so beautiful. We also discovered an amazing craft beer bar which was run by a couple who used to work at a bar in New York City - on the block where we lived, no less! All in all, we had such a fun time soaking up sun as a family (with plenty of sunscreen!), and hope to make a trip back someday!
