Puerto Rico Vamanos!

Tank won a trip from work for the two of us to Puerto Rico. So we headed out early on May 1st. We flew to Philly and then down to San Juan. It was a long day of travel but it was nice to finally get there. We checked in and went to get some dinner. We ate at a restraunt in the Hotel Caribe where we were staying. It was somewhat authentic Puerto Rican food. They use plantains which are shaped like banans but taste more like potaotes. After dinner we headed to check out the beach and hotel swimming pool.
We took the shuttle over to the Convention center to register. Tank got hooked up with all kinds of cool stuff including a Xoom (like an IPad), digital camera, camcorder, sunglasses, flip flops, and money for our food while we were there. After we got back we went a group and ate at a hole in the wall Puerto Rican restraunt in Old San Juan. After lunch we explored the Fort and went souvenior shopping. We had sinner at the hotel; and went and workout in the weightroom which over looked the beach. It was raining for the first 2 days we were there so we didn't do much beach or swimming time.
This was a work day. We took the shuttle over to the Convention Center and they had an awards ceremony and then they had the vendor show. All the vendors that Best Buy carry were in the convention center and they had to go around and listen to their spill about new product. That night we just took it easy and ate at the hotel again.
This was our relaxing day. We went and got a couples massage which was really nice. After our massages we hwent to Senor Frogs for Lunch. That night they had a private screening for the Best Buy Employees and guests for Fast Five. Which I was super excited about because for those of you who really know me, know I love me some Paul Walker. It was a really good movie especailly if you like the Fast and Furious Series. Then we went with some other Colorado Best Buy people to dinner.
Today we had our excurision. We chose the ATV Excursion. They drove us to this ranch where they had acres and acres of land. We drove all around the property and then we drove to this trail and hiked up to these caves. It was really fun. Then that night we were ableto go to a buffet dinner and they had the Goo Goo Dolls perform a concert for us.
We made the long trek home. It was fun to go on vacation with Tank and just relax. As always, we have to send a huge shout out to my MOM , Grnadma Eves, who came and stayed with the boys! Thanks so much!! We love you!!!
