Last night Nick and I went to the beach to take the night off and celebrate our 2 year anniversary (can you believe we have been married for 2 years already??  We can't).  The past few weeks have been busy and we were starting to get tired.  It was so nice to relax, play in the ocean, eat different food, and take lots of naps.  We even took nice clothes and got all dressed up for dinner, not because we needed to, but just because we wanted to feel like we were out on a "real" date.  Dinner was great!  Nick had lobster and I had some beef thing!  For dessert we had homemade ice cream.  It was a tiny scoop, but we ate it extremely slowly enjoying ever bite of it.  Dinner was candle lit, and not to be romantic but because we actually needed it.  The generator shut off in the middle of dinner and they had to bring candles out to us so that we could see!  We've eaten lots of candle light dinners, but never because we had too!

We took a moto there which was an experience in itself!  My husband is basically Haitian, he swerves in and out of traffic even when there are cars coming at us only a few feet away!  If traffic is going to slow he will go around it all.  I told him that if our parents knew what we were doing they would freak and he said that they wouldn't freak but they would probably pray more!  Yes Mom we wore helmets and we were being safe!!

We went a different way than what I have ever come before and it was nice to experience something new.  Nick pointed out a lot of things to me and it seemed as if he has been living here his whole life!  It amazes me how well he is fitting in here and how much he enjoys his daily tasks!

On our way back we stopped at the bank to get money which is kind of fun.  They have a metal detector wand that they check you with before you go in and a sign that says no guns.  As we were finishing up our transaction the teller asked Nick if he liked Haiti and then after he said yes asked why he doesn't speak Creole.  Wow... guess we better go into Creole over time so that we can make our banker happy!!

Even though the day off was great, we are very excited to be home!  We love it here and missed all of our kids!
