Last Vacation Post: I Swear!

I just wanted to squeeze a few more vacation photos in before the holidays. I need to get everyone caught up on the Barrett's before the New Year! Before we left The Dominican Republic we took  day trip to Santo Domingo. It was nice to get off the resort and actually see the town.

This is the tomb of Christopher Columbus. We also visited several of his homes while we there.

I needed to take this photo of the family in front of the Pope mobile. Yes, Thee Pope Mobile.

We took in several sites in town, visited a memorial for their fallen soldiers, the very first university and several of the conquistadors homes.

We had lunch in this amazing cave. Several celebrities have eaten here during their stay on the island. It was so cool.

This is their version of the White House. Unfortunately, we did not get to have coffee with president. Maybe next trip!

We visited another series of caves with under ground pools and rivers of water. They actually used this located to film Jurassic Park 3. We saw fish living in these pools.

The entire family had the chance to swim with the dolphins. I'm so glad we did it. It's something the boys will never forget. We also visited the zoo.

Finally we said goodbye to paradise and returned home to find it snowing! It was an amazing trip. I can't wait to see where our adventures take us next!
