We're Back!!!

We are back from a 10-day vacation. Just got back, very late Tuesday night (very late!). It will take me forever to sort through all the 736 photos we took (yes, 736... are we snap happy or what?!)... and I know my mom wants photos! ;) So, to appease my mom, and to prolong my blog hiatus just a little longer (I'm not feeling ready to start real blogging again quite yet)... here's the game---

Where In The World Were The Johnson-McCormicks???!
Can you guess?
If you know (cuz you know us in real life), then you're automatically disqualified. But for all other readers (if we still have any readers after such a long blog break)... the game is on! Over the next few days, while I'm sorting through the photos, I'll post some here. You gotta guess where we were.

Winner, or winners, win nothing. But, like we're fond of saying to K & O lately, "it isn't about winning or losing, it is about the fun of playing" (!)

Just 1 hint: we were in one country the whole time, but spent the first part of the trip in one place and the second part in another. Can you guess where we were?!

Leave comments below.
In the meantime, Mom, and all of you out there who check in on us through this blog, -- hope you like these photos! :) [as always, click to enlarge]

Wild guess here - first photo, of Meera gleefully eating sand and the boys building sand mountains... I am going to say... Ft. Lauderdale area - maybe, Stuart/Palm City... Beach is wide, its obviously warm and sunny, water is pretty, fun stuff has washed ashore to play with/terrorize parents with... Second photo, boys posing in front of a pool and blowing palm trees - water VERY tropical..#3 Meera looking stylish in her shades sippin' on some water... its hot... so... One of the Keys?

Looks like you guys had a great time and BEAUTIFUL WEATHER! Man, I want a tropical vacation one of these days! Cant wait to see some more pictures of your adorable kids and here about your adventures on vacation!!

Welcome back!

I spotted a clue in the pics that makes me think it's a Spanish-speaking place. My guess: the Dominican Republic! (Big enough to spend part in one place, then on to another...)

Hard choice! I seriously contemplated both Belize & Puerto Rico...

Gail said...

I'm so glad you're back!! Looks like you had a great time. Of course I know where you were so I can't guess. Hint--it's one of the most wonderful places in the world.

Marco Island Florida

Lorna said...

Adorable pics, as always. Anguilla or British Virgin Islands?

Patricia said...

I love it that you can see whoever took Meera's pic in the reflection of her sunglasses. Great shot! I can't play obviously, but I didn't know you went to two different places. Hmmm. Glad you had fun!

Mark and Sarah said...

I'm guessing the Caymans! How fun. Can't wait to see more pics!

Heather said...

Patricia-- that's one of the things I love most about that photo too!!! It is me reflected in her shades-- I took the pic.

I think it's the island of Hispaniola; the eastern side. Maybe.
Meera has a mouthful and a twinkle in her expression--too cute.

Holli said...

The Jabber said...

Jamaica?

Heather said...

Just so y'all know... as of 5:00 Friday (EST), nobody has guessed it yet!

Sara said...

From your past vacations I think you were in Florida. So I vote east coast of Florida (sand is not white enough for the west coast) and then from Gail's comment above I guess the other place must have been Disneyworld in Orlando.

Kristen said...

Miami!? Or Sanibel Island?

Gooch said...

Hawaii?!?

ShannonC said...

Ok, I'll bite. USVI. St. John's maybe.

Amy said...

I'm going to guess the Bahamas.

Mark and Sarah said...

Okay, I have another guess. You were in the US, but spent half the time in Puerto Rico...still the US!

Jenn said...

I say Mexico, Cancun or Playa del Carmen.

Lucia Martin said...

I think Republica Dominicana...maybe Casa de Campo, Punta Cana....I need to see morepics.

Lucia Martin said...

I got to thinking it could also be Vieques and Culebra in PR?????

Alejandra said...

I say Mexico, in Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta.

It looks like one of the resorts in Haiti, excpet that I don't think you'd take the boys back until you were sure they could fullu understand :)

Candis said...

I'm in Chapter Two Manmi's camp--except I think you were in Haiti.

Tricia V. said...

Maybe it was a return trip to Virgin Gorda?? The boys sure loved it last time!!

Mary McG in TN said...

I'm going with Haiti.

Min said...

My guess is Haiti...can't wait to hear the answer!

Sara said...

I'm guessing Haiti, and that you are showing them the good parts of Haiti and leaving the more difficult parts for when they are older and can better understand everything.

hmmm - I guess the florida keys -
