It was absolutely brilliant arriving in West Kingston.  Very emotional and wonderful to be with family again.  I was lucky enough to catch up with Robin just before we went to Vanuatu, but Mike had seemed to have missed meeting Robin.  So after all these years they could finally meet in person - it was great. 
 

Penelope and Steve, Catherine and Dawid, Mollie and Cameron all came down over the 2 week stay to meet us.  So every day was filled with great conversation and good family ties reformed.  It meant so much to me to see the girls and their partners and rub a bit of the traveling bug off on them!  Hopefully we will have some visits from everyone before we come back to Rhode Island in a few years.  

Robin and Bob were so wonderful to us, sharing their family (thanks for Easter dinner Margie, John and family - really good to see you all again) house, art and love and doting on my sometimes rambunctious children!  All happy moments; the most special of all being Easter. Yes, the Easter bunny did come (proof on the video of Quinn) and the Easter egg hunt was a true delight for everyone.  

 
It was very sad to leave and I was a tad speechless in the end, not knowing when we would be back, as I miss Robin all the time, so in my blundering moments I accidentally left my handbag on the rails and as the train pulled out, totally lost it.  My hero Mikey took us all to the airport and as the Robin and Bob and the train conductors were kind enough to get it on the next train to Boston, Mike managed to meet the next train and get back to the airport in time to fly out to London.  As always, traveling is a continuous riot of plans and mishaps.
