So we left for sunny Puerto Rico on Thanksgiving morning. Our flight was actually at 5:30am. We chose this time because it seemed ideal while traveling with a toddler. I'm glad we did. He was awesome in the airport and on the plane!
We actually had two flights and on both he slept or sat there and ate. He loved watching the planes coming in and out of terminals and was friendly with all the other travelers. I'll do a review later on what we did to make the trip smooth kid-wise.
We arrived in Puerto Rico around 5pm and we checked into our rental house and headed out to find food. This was our downside to traveling on Thanksgiving...nothing was open!! We managed to find a McDonald's and fumbled our way through ordering some food. (My spanish is awful haha) We then waited for the rest of our family to arrive. (My parents, sister, aunts and uncle)
Once everyone arrived we settled in and got some rest... we had huge plans to sight-see the next day!

Lil A actually slept on a big boy bed this entire vacation. It was crazy how well he adjusted. He rolled off a couple times the first night, but we had the bed surrounded by pillows. :)

|Cemetery right next to the ocean...beautiful|
|It rained on and off all day, but it was always a quick rain followed by sunshine.|
|My Aunt (Dad's sister-in-law), My mom and my other aunt (Mom's sister)|

The wind was blowing so hard throughout the building...these next two pics were fun because the wind was actually blowing lil A's curly fro...it made him laugh too. :)
|My aunt and mom...sisters!|
As we were leaving and walking the streets of Old San Juan, it started raining so he headed into this indoor plaza to stay dry. We ended up finding a really cute coffee shop and museum...the architecture and colors were amazing!
The inside was open-air...so "some "people enjoyed a lil run in the rain!

Loved the chairs outside of the cafe. They were wrapped in coffee bean burlap sacks.
Loved the heart design they made in the cup...

We spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the streets. All the buildings were so colorful!
We ended up in a plaza known as pigeon park where we got quite the experience feeding the birds!
...told you there were a lot of pics... stay tuned for more!!
