We have returned from eight fun filled days at the beach in Mombasa, Kenya. We stayed at Diani Beach with two other families; seven kids total. Addie was the eldest so little kid activities filled our Thanksgiving week vacation. It was a great kid friendly place to vacation. We rented a huge villa with a cook on staff and a housekeeper. We had a pool and beach access on the property. The kids were all up before the sunrise every day ready for another full day of swimming, sand castle building and playing.
We were so eager to get out of Ethiopia that we left our home in a rush leaving it a disaster. I truly believe that it isn't a proper family with small children vacation if you aren't absolutely exhausted at the end of your trip and ready to return home with a new sense of appreciation for your kitchen, soft bed and clean shower. We made the most of every moment at the beach and came home with suitcases filled with salty wet sandy towels and swimming suits.
