Vacation to Sharm El Sheikh

We were so excited when people told us about the resort area in Egypt called Sharm El Sheikh. The prices are really great and a lot of the hotels are all inclusive. We haven't really had a vacation in over a year so we thought it would be nice to go somewhere to celebrate our one year anniversary of being overseas. I did a lot of research on all the hotels in the area and looked for one that was all inclusive and had great pools for Judah. We decided on Park Inn by Radisson and it didn't disappoint!

There were 6 pools, including a wave pool and a lazy river. Two of them were shallow and perfect for kids Judah's age, with lots of play equipment and slides. He was in heaven! There were even some bigger slides for adults which we had some fun with as well.

Awesome pools!

The biggest highlight of the trip was having our friend Mindy come and join us! She was finishing up a two year term living overseas and decided to meet up with us as she traveled back to the States. It was so great to see her again after two years and a big blessing to have here there to love on and help out with the kids! Thanks Mindy! We miss you already!

We had heard the food at all inclusive resorts could be not so great, but we thought everything was pretty good. One thing I really enjoyed was that inside the big dining room there was even a small dining area for kids, complete with a Toy Story mural, kid-friendly food and a tv playing movies. Judah loved having his own special area to meet other kids and watch some cartoons.

Gone are the days of leisurely sun-bathing by the pool, but we had a great time playing with Judah and lounging with Sofia under the umbrella or inside with the air conditioning. We were only gone for a little under a week so it went by super fast, but we feel abundantly blessed to be able to take a trip like that and relax together as a family.

Until next time!
