Last week, I missed my "week in review" post.
Because I was out of the country!
Shane and I, with the MAJOR help of my mother who kept all four of our children, took an amazing 6 night cruise to the Eastern Bahamas. It was absolutely the best time in my life.
Those that have known me for a while know that Shane and I have been fortunate to have been on many trips, because I was a PartyLite leader and consultant for several years and earned many trips to some exotic places (Cruised to the Bahamas, went to the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, and went to Hawaii--twice. Once to Oahu and once to the Big island.) But this trip far outdid those other ones.
I never thought I could enjoy a trip so much. Shane and I had a wonderful time together,
but it was so special for ALL of us to be together as well!
That day, we didn't do too much. I'm a lounger on vacation. Shane is more of a do-er, so it was good that he had Tom and I had Jen. They went and played basketball and air hockey in the arcade while we worked hard on our tans.
It was so neat, the way they hacked them up....
It turned out to be a really fun time. Even Jen and I got in and played, but mostly we just watched the boys get hammered by the ocean. (That was really fun, too.)
I was just floating for a while, and Shane kept telling me to take off my glasses. I knew if I did, I wouldn't be able to see, and plus--I was staying way away from the breaking waves, so I just kept floating while wearing them. Well, all of a sudden, without really thinking, I decided to ride one in and lost my glasses right off my face!
Ugh....that beach did some damage, for sure--but was so fun in the process.
After lunch, we went on the best adventure--climbed to the top of Dunn's River Falls. Below is a stock photo, because clearly, I needed my hands to climb this, since I didn't have my eyes! *giggle* Tom took lots of great pics with his underwater camera, though. It was so, so much fun and beautiful!
Yikes! Talk about picture overload....the second half of the cruise will have to wait for another day!
