Hi! What a great holiday weekend it was! The Children’s Programs were a big hit with everyone at the resort. We played Bingo, had a Circus Night, a Farm Animal Night and a Mexican Fiesta. Each night there was a complimentary dinner provided for the kids, followed by plenty of fun activities to take part in. We took lots of pictures so you can see how much fun we had!
On Thanksgiving itself, I started my day by taking all four of my kids to the Yoga Joint South, which is about 2 minutes from Lago Mar. It’s a brand new yoga studio and it is beautiful My girls did the hot yoga class with me while the boys went into the kids’ playroom. Everyone was happy, which is an amazing feat with 4 kids.
While there, I ran into one of our guests that has been staying at our resort for over 20 years. She had walked from the hotel over the bridge to yoga and was thrilled that such a nice studio was so close and convenient! She actually ended up going to yoga every day of her week-long stay.
The owner of Yoga Joint South is a member of our private beach club and I honestly don’t know if I am at her place more or if she is at my place more. We laugh about it all the time!
Chef Phil received rave reviews for his Thanksgiving Dinner. I am sure he is enjoying his day off today and catching up on some much needed rest.
Yesterday, we ended the holiday by attending the First Baptist Church Christmas Pageant. They were celebrating their 30th year and I have to say that I am just mesmerized every single year watching the super talented performers with their exquisite costumes and amazing choreography. I have seen Broadway performances in London and New York, and I think this tops all of those. There is no better way to get in the Christmas spirit than to attend the First Baptist Church Christmas Pageant!
Lastly, I just wanted to say how thankful I am that we have so many wonderful guests that come back year after year to celebrate their Thanksgiving with us and also how grateful I am to the members who are so loyal to our resort. Tomorrow I will take lots of pictures of the holiday decorations that have just been put up and post them. I love this time of the year!
