|From Simpson Bay Beach|
Thursday we went on the radio with Soc in the morning then went into Philipsburg for the afternoon, the Allure of the Seas was in port and my parents hadn't seen the new huge cruise ships yet. Unfortunately we couldn't get very close, but it was still neat to see from the boardwalk. We did a little walking around and a little shopping, this was one of the only parts of the island they had seen before, so we didn't spend too much time there. That evening we had a nice dinner on the lagoon at Skip Jacks followed by a last trip to Carousel, which my parents totally loved. Friday we spent the morning at Mullet Beach before packing up and heading to the airport. We had lunch and said our "see you soons" and just like that the week was over. Or so we all thought :) My parents incoming plane had a medical emergency on the way to St Maarten and the plane was grounded because they did not have back up medical supplies for the outgoing flight. So 5pm Friday, Owen is playing volleyball, I'm catching up on homework, and there's a knock at the door. My parents flight had been postponed until Saturday afternoon! So we headed to the hotel the airline put them up at, had dinner and hung out for a bit. The next day we had brunch, dropped their bags back off at the airport, and hung out back at our apartment for a bit. This time their flight, which ended up getting delayed a couple hours, was able to take off.

So that's the rundown of the Landgren's visit to our little island. Everyone had a really great week and it was a lot of fun to show them the island from our point of view. Thanks for coming to visit!! Here are a few pictures from their visit, the last one is from a wedding at the Summit on Saturday, thought they'd like to see it. I'll post some more on our Picasa site next time I'm at the school, with fast internet. Enjoy!
