Winter in the Toronto area has been relentless this year with record-breaking cold and snowfall so we were all anticipating our spring break escape to Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas for a few days.
Our extended weekend at Atlantis didn't play out quite the way that we had envisioned though. We arrived late in the day on Thursday and enjoyed the warm breeze, the pools and the beach for a couple of hours before dinner. The next morning we ran into friends from home and Emma and the three girls had a fabulous time playing outside all day and at Club Rush that evening.
Then overnight between Friday and Saturday, Emma woke up with a tummy bug and she was ill for the balance of the weekend. There was even a brief time on Monday morning that I thought I might have to take her to the hospital rather than the airport to fly home. Fortunately, we were able to make our flight and she has recovered nicely although I have had to promise a return trip in the near future to make up for all that she missed out on.
Even though our weekend didn't go according to plan, it was still a break to escape the snow and the cold for a few days and enjoy this stunning resort property. These are a few of my favourite photos from the weekend.
