Oh wow. Koh Samui was amazing. The house was spectacular, the island was fun, and we had a great time with the families we traveled with. We spent much of our time at the home we rented but also had a few fun day trips out: beach, quad-biking to a waterfall, shopping, and football golf. It was incredibly hard to say goodbye to that island on Saturday. So here's a photo heavy post of our adventures this past week...

|Poolside Thai massages for the Daddies. No worries, the Mommies got them as well.|
The next few are photos of our day spent Quad-Biking. We rode to the highest point on Samui, had a beer, enjoyed the view, saw a few Buddha statues, then continued down the mountain for lunch. After lunch, we drove the bikes to a waterfall where we played around for the remainder of the afternoon.
A few more photos from the house/pool. Wren fell off the couch on Wednesday night and busted her lip. Aside from some bruising, she seems to be fine now. We are wondering if she'll end up having a dead tooth from the fall but considering it would fall out anyway in a few years, it's not a huge concern for us.
While the other families spent Thursday snorkeling, we stayed back and took the kids to play football golf.

Maybe it's because we never really traveled during Spring Break (except for Disney World last year) but I came back from this vacation truly refreshed. We went to bed super-early on Sunday night and Monday was a great segue back into the end of the school year. It's amazing to me that we only have 9 weeks of school left before we all hop flights out of Delhi and return to families for the summer.
Speaking of summer, Evan and I have put together a rather tentative summer plan for our travels. As of now, it'll take us to Charleston and the beach during the month of June and to North Carolina (Evan's parent's house and cabin plus Asheville) for the month of July. We have to get a new roof for the house while we are there this summer and are also hoping to enroll Oakes in a summer day camp for a week. And if any of you are around, we'd absolutely LOVE to see you while we are in town. We hear there are a few nice breweries that have opened up this past year while we've been gone...
