We arrived back home yesterday evening from our 5 day "holiday" trip to Bali. Words cannot express what a wonderful trip this turned out to be. I can't remember the last time I visited somewhere and didn't want to leave. Sean outdid himself by booking us into a very nice hotel which I can only describe as a little piece of paradise. Kylie had such a wonderful time that when we told her it was time to leave - she started to cry! It doesn't help that we were laying by the pool and had just wrapped up lunch. So naturally she thought we were planted for the day as we had done the same routine on the previous days - lol! At first I thought, geez we are the only ones with a kid. I didn't feel guilty at all. Instead I thought how lucky we were to be able to spend quality time with Kylie in such a beautiful destination. On the second day, we met a family with a soon to be 3yr old and Kylie and their daughter Charlotte hit it off right away. The lovely family is from Australia and we definitely plan to stay in touch. We stayed at a beautiful resort called InterContinental and I highly recommended it to anyone planning a trip to Bali. We enjoyed the private beach, beautifully manicured grounds, delicious food, entertainment and the gorgeous pools. Our 2 1/1 hour plane ride was worth every penny and we are looking forward to doing it again soon...very soon.
We flew on Garuda Indonesia. It was a pleasant and enjoyable trip.
Welcome to Bali!
This is the hotel's check in process. No waiting in line:-)
We were served complimentary lemon grass drinks.

The beautiful Bali sunset!
Kylie finds a new little friend.
We watched the sunset from the appropriately named Sunset Bar:-)Our first night we enjoyed pasta from a fancy Italian restaurant complete with a lady serenating each table with traditional songs from Italy. Here is my darling daughter after the waiter placed the napkin on her lap. "Mommy what's this?" "Honey it's the napkin ring:-)"

Kylie enjoyed, the pretty flowers that fell from the trees.
