Phuket on Christmas Day
We have been a lot of places since we moved to Laos. Most of those trips have been anything but relaxing. Lots of people go home to Europe or Australia around Christmastime, but it's really the best time for weather in southeast Asia. We went to Phuket, which came highly recommended. Matt did a bunch of research on the best beach and resort for families, and he did a fantastic job! It was definitely the most relaxing of any of our trips so far, because the hotel and the beach were our destination, not just a place to collapse at the end of a busy day. And, the clientele was almost exclusively families of young children, who understood when our kids had total meltdowns on the beach or at breakfast or anywhere in between. (And we understood when their children did the same!) It was wonderful.
It was definitely not a normal Christmas Day, but it was fun to spend lots of time with my little family in a very beautiful place.
This is a different day on the beach... Photos on Matt's cell phone. This is one sand castle Matt made with the boys. We had to keep them busy on shore if one of us wanted to go swim in the deep.
